Airport Overview

The history of Varna International Airport goes back to 1916, when it was just two sheds set up for mail flights to what was already a Bulgarian maritime hub. Although Varna is still considered a small airport by today’s standards, it has grown tremendously into five terminals that together handle more than 1.2 million passengers per year.
Few routes include stopovers in Varna, so flights to Varna International Airport are how most people access the Bulgarian beach resorts of the Black Sea coast, including Golden Sands and Sunny Beach.

Airport services are efficient and the staff is friendly, so you can be confident that your Bulgarian holiday will start and end smoothly.
