By Plane

Arriving in Krakow from abroad generally means coming by plane and landing either at Kraków Airport or Katowice Airport in Pyrzowice. Located just 17km east of the city centre in Balice, Kraków's brand-new airport is modern, comfortable and much easier to navigate than most international air travel hubs. Conveniently connected to the centre by its own frequently running train service, getting to the airport and back is a breeze.
