The driver will wait for you at the airport with a board with your name. The operational manager Mr Anton Antonov is available at +359-877011018 to assist in any time.

    NOTE: The bus from Sofia Airport on Sunday, 19th june, starting at 14:30 is a special private bus provided by the organizers, there will be no other such special bus on that day.
    For those who are interested in public transport from Sofia to Blagoevgrad: there are several public buses on that day. However, we do not recommend such transportation, as there is not a public shattle bus directly from the airport to the bus station which is quite distant from the airport and one should change two buses to reach the bus station, or take a taxi). Besides, the bus station for the public buses is close to the central railway station in the norden part of the city of Sofia and it takes more than half an hour for the buses to cross the city on the way to Blagoevgrad (which is direction south).
    If you cannot reach Sofia Airport by 14:30 on Sunday, 19th june, then we recommend to overnight in Sofia (in the hotel of BAS) and take the early special bus the next day (this is again a private special bus starting from that hotel, not a public transport).
