Plovdiv Airport (Bulgarian: Летище Пловдив, Letishte Plovdiv) (IATA: PDV, ICAO: LBPD) is the airport of the second largest city in Bulgaria, Plovdiv and is the country's 4th busiest behind Sofia, Burgas and Varna. It may be referred to as Plovdiv Krumovo Airport, after a small village located 6 km south-east away from the city on the main Plovdiv-Asenovgrad highway.
Plovdiv airport serves the nearby ski resorts of Bansko, Pamporovo and Borovets,
and therefore serves mainly charter flights, during the winter season
from the end of December until March. The main traffic at present is
charter flights to and from the United Kingdom and Russia. The airport
also plays a vital role in case of emergencies and is sometimes used as
an alternate for Sofia Airport, which is almost 150 km away or 1.5-hour drive on the Trakiya motorway.
The beginning of civil aviation at Plovdiv came with the first test
flight between Sofia-Plovdiv-Yambol and Burgas early in 1928. In 1947,
interim civilian flights between Sofia and Plovdiv was carried out.
On 2 October 1947, the regional newspaper Fatherland Voice
reported that over a period of 45 days 1,500 passengers were carried,
noting that the flights were always on time. In May 1948, regular return
flight began between Sofia-Plovdiv-Bourgas and Varna. The same period
also saw the former Fifth Air Regiment getting established at the
airport, and a ticket office was put into use. The first flight was
carried out by the airline Balkan Bulgarian Airlines with aircraft types
called TABSO, S-2, and with Li-2. During the Fair Plovdiv airport served an average of 25 aircraft per day.
On 2 May 1962, the airport operations moved to the Graf Ignatievo
Airbase north of the city. At Plovdiv major restructuring of the
airport facilities was carried out. One year later the regional
newspaper "Fatherland Voice" published an article with the heading: "He
has TRACK OF AIRPORT Plovdiv". In the same article the public was
informed of the expansion of charter flights by Balkan Bulgarian
Airlines to such destinations as Berlin, Moscow, Prague, and Vienna; the flights were carried out with aircraft types IL-18, TU-104 and TU-114.
On 13 September 1965, a new terminal building was opened, and
next year, an enlarged tarmac was put into use in time for winter season
In the 1970s, the airport underwent considerable improvement and cargo airline Aeroflot Cargo began regular operation with IL-18, AN-12 and TU-154. In 1972 more than 5,000 tons of air cargo went through the airport. On 18 April 1978, an IL-76 landed at the airport, with a gross cargo payload capacity of 40 metric tons.
Domestic scheduled flights were terminated in 1980, but winter
charter flights continue to increase which again leads to a relocation
of ground facilities as technical buildings, power supply facilities,
air traffic control tower and administrative facilities.
On 18 December 1982, the first aircraft TU-134 arrived, a charter flight from Amsterdam, the beginning of a new era for Plovdiv Airport. It is followed by the arrival on 3 November 2010 by a Boeing 737-800 arriving from London Stansted Airport, opening a year-round international passenger service to and from Plovdiv Airport.
On 25 December 2009, the first service to a scheduled destination, Moscow, started. This was the first scheduled flight since 1981. The airport handled 103,300 passengers in 2015.
to the airbase is the only functional aviation museum in Bulgaria.
Opened in 1991, the museum has a rich collection of modern, cold war
airplanes and such from the Third Bulgarian Kingdom. Due to the low
state budget, the collection is preserved mostly by donations. The
museum is accessible by car on the way to the airport and is about 100m
from Mavrudovo railway station. Working hours for visitors are
