| Flew into Sofia using Ryanair, so that's Terminal 2. Ryanair tend to use the remote stands for its aircraft so not surprised as we were on a bus. The bus was old and didn't feature air-conditioning. Collecting luggage was swift and passport control was swift too, a simple visual check of my passport. Landside, there is an ATM that dispenses Bulgarian Lev and WiFi which is free to use and I found it to be quite useful as my roaming wouldn't work. There's a taxi rank, which I'd avoid as taxi drivers aren't usually the most trustworthy. There's a direct connection to the metro, which is cheap as chips as well as a connection to T1 although this stops in the early evening. Arriving was a pleasant surprise. Departing is the same affair, lots of check in desks although I didn't need to use them. I had about 10 hours to kill before my flight so went airside. Security was good and swift and immigration was quick too. I even got a stamp in my passport when I asked. Airside, there isn't much apart from duty free with cheap cigarettes, a hand made cigar shop with cigars made to order and a few bars with overpriced beer. A pint of Kamenitza about 8lv, which I find a little pricey. There's a few mobile charging points in the terminal too. Be advised that the toilets can be untidy sometimes and smell a bit. There's 3 lounges and all are equally as mediocre as each other although, the Swissport lounge is the nicest. Another lounge has a smoking room too. Boarding was swift, although it can be busy in the evening when about 5 flights depart in quick succession so seating can be an issue at the gate. The terminal can get a little stuffy too as aircon isn't great. If you have a long wait in Terminal 2, you won't have much to do although it is a clean, pleasant experience. Travelling into Sofia, you haven't got a choice but the airport is decent enough.
