Direct cheap flights from Sofia: Ryanair adds Hamburg

Written by on September 7, 2016 in Bulgaria - Comments Off on Direct cheap flights from Sofia: Ryanair adds Hamburg

The number of direct flights to European cities offered by cheap carriers from Sofia keeps on increasing. While, in the years leading up the Bulgaria’s EU accession, Bulgarian authorities were fighting to keep cheap airlines out of the country, the opposite effect is being registered now.

Ryanair, one of the three largest cheap carriers, just started flying from Sofia to the northern German city of Hamburg, one of the nicest cities in Germany. These flights are being offered three times a week: on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, from Sofia Airport’s Terminal 1. Until recently, passengers on their way to Hamburg had to go via Lufthansa hubs in Munich or Frankfurt, or construct other flight connections via other European countries.

From Sofia, Ryanair offers a total of 21 connections. Those include the following cities and towns:

Belgium:
Brussels

Germany:
Baden-Baden (new connection as well)
Berlin-Schönefeld
Cologne
Memmingen
Hamburg (new)

Greece:
Athens

Ireland:
Dublin

Italy:
Milan
Pisa
Rome
Venice

The Netherlands:
Eindhoven

Spain:
Barcelona
Castellon
Madrid

Sweden:
Stockholm

U.K.:
Birmingham
Glasgow
Liverpool
London-Stansted

From Plovdiv, Ryanair flies to Stansted as well.
