Arriving in Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.

Major Airports in Sofia

The only major airport serving the city of Sofia, is Sofia Airport (SOF), it is situated 3 miles to the east of the city centre. It is a single terminal with runway facility and handles approximately 3.5 million passengers a year. The airport has recently been renovated and now has amenities including kiosk, café, ATM and banking. Keep in mind that you have to scan your luggage at the entrance to the airport for security reasons.

Airport Transportation in Sofia

A regular public bus to Sofia Airport runs from the city centre; look for service number 84. However, this is not a dedicated express bus to the airport, so allow around 20 minutes journey time. Some hotels offer a shuttle bus to Sofia Airport.

Currently, there is no train to Sofia International Airport.

A taxi to Sofia International Airport is the most convenient method of transport. We recommend that you pre-book before your departure by taxi to Sofia International Airport. Journey time should be around 10 minutes.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Sofia to Almaty on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
