General information

The construction of Varna airport began in 1946 and ended with its opening in May 1948. The airport was small and flights were done only to the capital Sofia. A decision was later taken to be constructed a larger terminal in 1972 and a larger runway in 1974. Following these changes, destinations served and number of passengers increased.

Varna Airport is situated 8 km from the town of Varna and has direct connection with international roads E-70 and F-87. Regular bus line 409 connects the airport with the town. Its route starts at Aksakovo, passing the airport, the bus station, three of the largest malls in town, the summer resorts and Varna Free University. However, the bus is not the best option if you have a lot of baggage. In this case there are numerous taxis to help you out. Verification of their fare list is almost mandatory, but some drivers take passengers to the most common destinations at already defined prices.

In 2006 Varna Airport and Burgas Airport were concessioned by Fraport Twin Star Airport Management. The contracts are for 35 years and the company has high expectations for this period. Fraport plans to build a new terminal, increase the number of scheduled flights, improve service quality and divide the flow of passengers according to Schengen.
