Plovdiv Airport is a regional airport that serves South-Central Bulgaria and a population of over 2 million people in a driving distance of 1.5 hours by road. The airport is located 12 km southeast from the city of Plovdiv - the second largest city and cultural capital of the country. Situated in the very heart of the Balkan Peninsula, the city is an appropriate starting point for travelling around the region.
Plovdiv was recently named the oldest city in Europe, with a history dating back more than 6000 years. The city and its surroundings abound of cultural, archaeological, historical and natural attractions. All year around the city is the host of musical, art and cultural festivals, concerts and forums. The Rhodopes provide conditions for mountain, ecological, hunting and fishing tourism. The temperate climate and the presence of many vineyards and wineries in the region, attract visitors from the country and from abroad for wine tourism. Nearby towns of Velingrad, Hisar, Banya and Narechen are well known destinations for SPA tourism, and the numerous churches and monasteries in the Rhodope Mountains and the foothills of the Balkan Mountains - for religious tourism.
During winter Plovdiv Airport welcomes foreign ski tourists who chose to spend their holiday in Pamporovo, Borovets and Bansko. The main factor for the development of business tourism is the Plovdiv Fair, as well as the growing number of newly built accommodation facilities. The tourist infrastructure in the region is well developed and meets all modern requirements and standards.
Serving a region with more than 2 million inhabitants, we believe that the prospects for the expansion of the scheduled services from Plovdiv Airport are very good. Our mission is to create and establish long-term partnerships in the aviation industry in order to increase the traffic passing through the airport. We believe that it will lead to economic development of the entire South-Central region.
