The 4-millionth passenger arrived at Sofia Airport

On the eve of the Christmas and New Year holidays Sofia Airport welcomed its 4-millionth passenger. Jasmina Christoff, the lucky passenger, and her family arrived from London on British Airways flight.

To the accompaniment of Strauss’s “Radetzky March” played by the wind orchestra to the National Music School “Lybomir Pipkov”, the passenger was welcomed officially at the airport.


Santa Claus landed at Sofia Airport

Santa Claus arrived at Sofia Airport to meet the children. He did not arrive by sleigh as usual, but by helicopter.

As always the white-bearded old man was welcomed by many children at the airport. He shared he had to come by helicopter since it was so heavy with snow in Lapland that he could not find his deer but he did not want to be late for his meeting with the children.


Shuttle buses with changed hours of operation

As of today, 01.12.2015, in relation to the upcoming holidays and the expected larger passenger flow, Sofia Airport experimentally changes the hours of operation of the shuttle bus service connecting the two terminals.

The first shuttle bus will be at 5:00 a.m. and the last one at 11:15 p.m. That change is made in coordination with the public transport services schedule.
