Sofia Airport (Bulgarian: Летище София), also known as Vrazhdebna (Враждебна) is the main airport in Sofia, Bulgaria. The airport is a hub for Bulgaria Air (successor of the bankrupt Balkan Airlines) and Hemus Air. The IATA airport code of Vrazhdebna is SOF, its ICAO airport code is LBSF.

Built in the 1930's on the outskirts of the then relatively small capital city, Sofia Airport cannot properly handle today's traffic. Furthermore, it is inconveniently situated among industrial and residential areas of the expanding city. After years of studying different possibilities, some as far away from Sofia as 70 km, it was agreed the new Sofia Airport terminals, service buildings and runways will be constructed near the existing location.
