Air Travel to Bulgaria

If you live in Europe, air travel to Bulgaria is the fast option

Bulgaria is no more than about 3 hours away from almost every European city, and from many points of departure is two hours or less.

Intercontinental air travel can often involve a connecting flight; flights from the USA to Bulgaria often involve two flights, one to a Western European city, then an onward flight from that city to Sofia.

The flight time is 12-18 hours, but add in the stopover time and you may find total traveling time is 24 hours or so – but it’s well worth it as you’ll find out once you arrive!
