SOF Connect is a company set up for the consortium of Meridiam (99%), Strabag (1%) and Munich Airport (as an airport operator). In 2019, SOF Connect won the concession of Sofia Airport (SOF). The consortium received the rights and obligations for the development, construction, management, maintenance, and operation of Sofia Airport for 35 years. For this purpose, SOF Connect plans to attract more than 900 million leva in long-term investments in Bulgaria.
This public-private partnership will contribute to the recovery of Bulgaria's economic situation after the COVID-19 crisis and will help to achieve significant social, economic and environmental benefits at the regional level. The consortium aims to make Sofia Airport, which is a strategically important point for flights through Europe, the Middle East and the Caucasus, a role model in the sector, by implementing new technologies, improving the quality of service and the efficiency of facilities at the airport.
