Burgas Airport ( IATA: BOJ) is the second-largest airport from Bulgaria serving Burgas region and the southern part of the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast.

In 2019, almost 4 million passengers transited this airport comparing with 2018 when the figure was around 3.2 million. One of the main causes which determined the increase in traffic is the increase in the number of Sunny Beach Bulgaria flight from one year to another.

So, in December 2011 the construction of a new terminal has begun. Sunny Beach Bulgaria airport is about to be extended!
