How to get there
There are many flight options available to get to Bulgaria, with Sofia being the airport of choice. Sofia is approx 160 km from Bansko.
Here are some of the most widely used flight providers and information about their services can be found by clicking the links:-

Bulgaria Air (London Gatwick or Manchester)
EasyJet (London Gatwick or Manchester )
Wizz Air (London Luton)
Lufthansa fly from Manchester and Heathrow to Sofia via Munich, Frankfurt or Dusseldorf. As this is indirect it can take a little longer but they do offer very convenient flight times compared to other airlines.
To transfer from Sofia to Bansko it is possible to hire a car for collection at the airport and drive yourself, however it is much more relaxing to take a private or group transfer with any number of providers. They will pick you up from the airport and deliver you to the apartment.
Try Earlybird Transfers, HHB Holidays or Bansko Express, there are many others to choose from too.
Alternatively you can take the local bus from either Sofia central bus station or Ovcha Kupel bus station. Take a taxi from the airport to either of these bus stations. Check the bus service times online. The bus takes only a little longer than a private or group transfer but can be considerably more cost effective for smaller groups.
