Sure, we were very limited in flying to Europe within last year, but life is slowly getting back to somehow normal and people start traveling a little more. Do you know where all the airports are in Poland? Well, I will help you with that!
It’s always good to know your options! Especially when it comes to flying. I usually fly to Warsaw, but there are so many other airports that may be more convenient to fly to!
The national flag carrier of Poland is LOT, which is responsible for most of the routes in and out of the country. Other major players in the country are the low cost carriers Ryan Air and Wizz Air, as well as other European companies such as Eurowings, Lufthansa, Air France, KLM and many others.
