Inside Sofia Airport
September 16th 1937 is considered the birth date of Sofia Airport; by a Decree of Tzar Boris III, the airport's location was chosen for the construction of a civil airport. From 1951 to 1965, the passenger terminal and the runway were renovated by stages, the runway being extended to 2,720 meters to accommodate modern large turbo-jet aircraft. In 2000, Sofia Airport Terminal 1 underwent an extensive renovation; in 2006, Terminal 2 was constructed, and features modern architecture and state-of-the-art facilities. Inside the airport you will find several food and drink options, as well as duty-free shops, souvenir shops, and newsstands.
