Sofia Airport offers to take you beyond the visible surface of our operations. During the guided tour you will have a close look at the activities related to the airport services; you will be acquainted with the functions of the specialized equipment; you will have a new insight into the inner life of the airport complex.
THE AIRPORT INSIDE
Having passed through the required security screening into the restricted area, the 5-kilometre route will take you onto the apron, across the taxiways up to the runway and the bridge over the Iskar river. We will show you the unique engine run-up bay, and one of the best European aircraft overhaul facilities. Then, we will continue further by the airport cargo area and ATSA’s new traffic control tower.
You have the choice between a basic route and an extended route, the difference being in their duration, resp. 60 and 90 min. While it covers all steps of the basic route, the extended one allows for a visit to the airport fire and rescue service with a simulated demonstration of fire and rescue operations.
