SOF | Sofia Airport

by wikipedia:
Sofia Airport (IATA: SOF, ICAO: LBSF) (Bulgarian: Летище София, Letishte Sofiya), sometimes also called Letishte Sofia-Vrazhdebna (Bulgarian: Летище София-Враждебна, Letishte Sofiya-Vrazhdebna), is the main airport in Sofia, Bulgaria. It is 5 km (3.1 mi) east[1] of central Sofia. In 2011 the airport served 3.474 million passengers.

Terminal 1

This terminal, which is well known to the inbound/outbound passengers in Sofia, now has a new name: Terminal 1. It was built in the first half of the 20th century and opened on 16 September 1937. It has been extended and improved many times, fundamentally renovated in 2000, still making, though, curious allusions to the latest history of the continent. Terminal 1 offers easy access, simple procedures and efficient services up to the modern airport standard.

Terminal 2

Terminal 2 was officially opened on 27 December 2006 with the symbolic arrival of Bulgaria Air flight FB 408 from Brussels. It was one of the biggest projects in Bulgaria to receive funds from the EU ISPA programme. The price includes the new terminal, new aircraft parking aprons, upgrading the existing aircraft parking aprons and the construction of connecting taxiways. The terminal has seven air-bridges (gates A1, B5–9 and C1), 38 check-in desks and covers an area of 50,000 m2 (540,000 sq ft) and has a car park for 820 vehicles. It is located to the east of Terminal 1 and is significantly bigger than the old one which continues to serve low-cost and charter airlines.

The passenger terminal building is designed with a capacity of 2,000 peak hour passengers or up to 2.6 million passengers a year, plus 26,000 tonnes of luggage. For the first time in Bulgaria, a terminal has airbridge-equipped gates instead of relying on airside busses.

Lufthansa Technik Sofia invests 30 mln euro in hangar expansion

Quote:
SOFIA (Bulgaria), October 5 (SeeNews) - The provider of civil aircraft maintenance and repair services Lufthansa Technik Sofia said on Wednesday it is investing 30 million euro ($33.7 million) in the expansion of its hangars at Sofia airport.
The project includes the construction of three additional maintenance lines and workshop areas as well as a six-level multifunctional building which allows for further growth of the central service department in the Bulgarian capital, Lufthansa Technik Sofia head of operations, Daniel Hoffmann, told a news conference in Sofia.
Out of the total amount, 5 million euro will be invested in training.
The investment is planned to boost the volume of the company's operations by 60% and will lead to a 30% increase in the number of employees in Sofia to 1,300.
"The expansion works should be completed by the end of summer season 2017, because we plan using the new capacity for the winter season in the same year," Hoffmann added.
Lufthansa Technik Sofia carried out 100 checks of airplanes last year, which took between a day and a month each.
After the expansion, the hanger will be able to accommodate big-body aircraft, Hoffman said. However, the company expects to service small-body aircraft only over the next 2-3 years.
"Lufthansa Technik operations will become the largest department outside of German territory," Hoffmann said.
Further plans about Lufthansa Technik's operations in Bulgaria have been discussed, he added without elaborating.

Bulgaria to re-launch Sofia airport concession tender

Quote:
SOFIA, May 10 (Reuters) - Bulgaria plans to re-launch a tender to run and operate Sofia airport, Finance Minister Vladislav Goranov said on Wednesday.

Last month, Bulgaria's interim government cancelled the tender saying the plans to grant concession rights for 35 years at the country's main airport were not in the public interest.

The tender was launched in May 2016 by the previous government of Prime Minister Boiko Borisov.

"We have no reason to change the strategy for the management of Sofia airport. The procedure to grant Sofia airport on concession will be launched again," Goranov told reporters after the first cabinet meeting of the new government, led by Borisov.

The Sofia airport, which was used by 5 million passengers last year, is currently operated by the state. (Reporting by Angel Krasimirov; editing by Jason Neely)
