Plenty of seating when waiting for check-in. Food and drink quite a lot more expensive than out and about on Bulgaria. But, good prices in the duty free. Also reasonably priced cafe available after going through security. Not easy to find drinking water source after security - worth asking for directions. Fairly short walks to gates in terminal 2.

Very easy to navigate through. The signage for the rental cars return is confusing. I resorted to parking in front the building. Fortunately the rental company stuff took over immediately. No hastles after all. The subway is extremely convenient too. It links the airport directly to the railway and the central bus station. Plenty of taxis around too, though some drivers take advantage of their customers - so be careful. The taxis can't load much luggage as most have LPG bottle in boot already.

I would suggest book well in advance, pay in advance if you can. Get yourslef the full insurance as well, as roads in Bulgaria can be challenging. Don’t expect too much of the airport as it is a small one. In general do not expect much of the service in the country - not their strength. Not everyone speaks Emglish there especially when you go outside of the capital. Menues of the restaurants also can be a bit off as the translation could be rather inaccurate. I would ask for tips from peiple that has been there already or are from Bulgaria. And do not trust all the taxi companies - you might pay more than you should!

Make sure that you have an up to date sat nav. Keep a good distance from te car in front. Warm the car up well inside if in snowy winter conditions.

If you use the local taxi, ensure he switches the meter on or stop the vehicle and exit the car. There is also a restaurant called "Happy Grill" food is very good.
