New Ryanair and Wizz Air flights out of Plovdiv for the ski season

Nov 05, 2021 No Comments by

Taking a Ryanair flight out and back to Plovdiv made me realise how much more of a relaxing experience it is compared to Sofia Airport. With a very convenient drop off, friendly check-in and security staff and a speedy transit through security it all came together as what I would describe as a “low stress” experience.

And now there are more options from Plovdiv airport with Ryanair and Wizz Air operating between three countries. Whilst the transfer time is 2 ½ hours to Bansko from Plovdiv at Sofia rush hour times it may even be about the same travel time than from Sofia. Combining a ski trip with a visit to Plovdiv and it’s historical city centre makes a lot of sense. Especially in March and April.

Pamporovo ski resort is under two hours away from Plovdiv airport and makes this it by far the best option if you’re looking to ski there. On a good snow day Pamporovo is delightful set amongst the Rhodopi mountains. It’s a more peaceful and simple option; without the night life and, it has to be said, with fewer ski slopes that brings more visitors to Bansko.

Visiting Plovdiv is always a good idea and now it’s easier than ever to give it a try with these new flights.

The winter schedule has flights to Dublin (Ireland), Stansted and, for Wizz Air, Luton airport in the UK.
