The best four airlines that we have found for flights to the Bulgarian ski resorts and mountain areas, if you are on a tight budget like us, are Ryanair, Easyjet, Wizz Air and Balkan Holiday Flights. The best prices are with Easyjet & Ryanair. Easyjet flying from Manchester and London Gatwick to Sofia.


The new airport terminal in Plovdiv is now open and Ryanair fly from Stanstead directly to Plovdiv with prices from £27! Special offers may be lower than this.

(example January 2012 price including luggage, taxes, etc. £145 return).


Balkan Holidays are slightly more expensive, but have flights from the regional airports of Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Humberside, Newcastle, Heathrow and Gatwick. They fly to Plovdiv and Sofia airports.


Wizz Air have the summer flights to Sofia and are very reasonably priced and we have found quite modern planes, some with leather seats!


Booking early, but not too early seems to be the way to get the best value flights. We have found that prices are high if we book say, 10 months before we fly. The best deals seem to be in October / November, when there are sales of low cost seats. Leave it to the last minute these days and prices will be higher, this is similar with the booking rail journeys in the UK.

Flight times from the UK to Bulgaria are approximately 3 hrs


Bulgarian time is GMT + 2 hrs in winter and GMT +3 hrs in summer


Return transfer by private taxi is less than £125 return for six passengers, the transfer time from Plovdiv Airport to Pamporovo is well under 1.5 hours.




(2012 Winter flights from Stanstead Airport directly to Plovdiv - around 1 hr 15 mins transfer to Pamporovo)




(2012 Winter flights to Sofia Airport from Gatwick & Manchester Airport)




(2012 Winter flights to Plovdiv Airport from regional UK airports)




(Summer flights to Sofia from Luton Airport)      



The new £7 million terminal is complete at Plovdiv Airport and open for the Ski Season 2012. Low cost airlines now fly directly to Plovdiv Airport, just 1 hr 15 mins transfer to the Sunny Pamporovo Ski Resort!

If you are about to set off on your ski holiday to Bulgaria, you can find those essentials such as torches (for those treks in the snow to the local bar, or restaurant), warm clothing and thermals, ice scrapers (if you are hiring a car), deep tread, non-slip boots, oil to top up the car before you drive to the airport.


Did you know that airport parking costs at Manchester and other Airports have dropped....it is now much cheaper than using a taxi - but watch out or you could get lost at the airport!


There are several car parks and several terminals with different busses - take a map, car park reference and check the terminal number has not changed due to flight changes, just before you fly! - no last minute panic.
