Plovdiv Airport Bulgaria
Plovdiv Airport (Bulgarian: Летище Пловдив, Letishte Plovdiv) (IATA: PDV, ICAO: LBPD) is the airport of the second largest city in Bulgaria, Plovdiv. It is often 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.
Due to its location near the popular ski resorts Bansko and Pamporovo, the airport is most active during the winter season. The main traffic at present is charter flights to and from the United Kingdom, Ireland 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.
On 25 December 2009 the first service to a scheduled destination, Moscow, started. This was the first scheduled flight since 1981.
