Over 80 destinations with 27 airlines are served from capital`s airport
Sofia Airport travellers will be able to choose from over 80 new and well-known destinations this summer. These are part of airport operator SOF Connect’s program to expand its flight network and provide convenient connections and transfer flights to neighbouring countries, tourist cities in Europe and exotic holiday destinations.
For the first time, flights to Zadar, Croatia will be operated from Sofia by Ryanair. They are planned from 1 May – twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays. Zadar is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination and delights visitors with its natural and historical attractions.
Among the new offers are Gullivair’s regular flights to Skopje, Tirana and Thessaloniki. The first flight to Skopje was operated on 26 March and the one to Tirana is scheduled for 2 April. Flights to Thessaloniki will be operated three times a week – Tuesday, Friday and Sunday – starting June 17.
Czech Airlines is also resuming its Sofia-Prague route, which has not been flown since 2012. They will operate three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 3 May. And Italian Airlines (ITA) will fly again to Rome (Fiumicino) every day of the week except Thursday from 1 May.
During the summer season there will also be a convenient connection to the seaside capitals. Ryanair will start twice-weekly flights to Varna from 1 May and Gullivair will resume flights to Burgas from 10 April. The national carrier Bulgaria Air also operates flights to both cities.
Charter flights to the popular winter schedule destinations – Cairo and Hurghada in Egypt, La Romana in the Dominican Republic and many others are also continuing.
