Airports:

Please note that currently we have two airports that can be considered as “Warsaw airport”:

  • Warsaw Chopin Airport – located within the city borders, approx. 8 km from the city centre
  • Mazovia-Warsaw Airport Modlin – located outside the city, approx. 40 km from the city centre.

Please bear it in mind while booking your flights, because it takes much more time to get to city centre from the Modlin airport than from the Chopin airport.

 

We will be looking forward to meeting you in Warsaw.
