Warsaw

Arrival

Warsaw-Modlin Airport

The new Modlin airport  looks like a shiny overturned tin can nestled in a forest in the middle of nowhere, though the architects may beg to differ. After a clumsy false start in 2012 involving a cracked runway, it finally reopened in September 2013; though other carriers opted not to return, RyanAir currently operates 33 connections across Europe here, including 2 domestic routes.

The interior is clean, modern and well-equipped to handle international travellers with plenty of prominent signage. Inside the arrival and departure halls you'll find all the services you could want, including six ATMs (bankomat), an information desk, bathrooms, free wifi, currency exchange (kantor), travel agents, shops of all shapes and sizes, two playgrounds, vending machines,  a pharmacy, eight restaurants (including a grill, a pizza joint, a bar and a wine bar), a VIP area and eight car rental companies.

Those looking to end up in Warsaw's city centre have three main options for transport: grab a cab or private shuttle, take a bus to the capital, or board one of the green and yellow shuttles that will take you to Modlin Train Station where you then take a train to your destination. The Koleje Mazowieckie train route is economical (17zł total for shuttle and train), though slightly time consuming (50 minutes total); buy a ticket from one of their stands located in the baggage hall or at Arrivals near the exit doors. Of the many bus transfer services (a full range of which you'll find on our website), Modlin Bus is the most comfortable and convenient, with no transfers necessary; tickets range from 9zł (if booked ahead online) to 33zł (at the airport - look for their stand in the baggage hall or near the Arrivals terminal exit). If money isn't an option, the airport's official taxi partners Sawa Taxi and Taxi Modlin offer transport to the city centre from 159zł (199zł between 24:00 and 06:00).

Can anyone advise what is the most efficient and economic way to connect from Modlin Airport to Chopin Airport. Also is there any reduction in public transport services on Sundays?

Airport far away from Warsaw. To get to the city center I`ve been always travelling with Sawa Taxi cabs. They offer service in Modlin and in Warsaw as well. Good quality and reasonable prices.

The landside shop [before passport control] at Warsaw Modlin airport stocks Lambert & Butler cigarettes. They are 143PLN for a carton of 200.

Arrived here a week ago in the evening and we were all subjected to constant attacks by mosquitos from the plane and even in the terminal as some pocket genius decided that air conditioning wasn't. required despite the outside temperature being at 30c. A young English child was hysterical with the pain of the bites they were receiving. We happened to mention the vast numbers of mosquitos around the airport and were told that Modlin was "too poor" an area to address this. Poland is a beautiful country with wonderfully hospitable and friendly people but Modlin despite its shiney facade is an absolute disgrace. This is not the Third World and its time that the authorities responsible for this dump woke up to it. If you can afford to avoid it my recommendation is avoid it. If you cant then avoid evening flights at least in the summer or make sure you are well protected from mosquitos.

Pretty good. In comparison with Europe is quite close to the center, as the second airport of the city. Clean, fast service.

I use Modlin airport very often since Ryanair opened domestic flights. I have to admit it is a lot better than I expected - I mean it seemed to me quite far away, but once you go there it occurs that getting there is smooth and fast. The airport itself is small, but comfortable. It has all services you might need - transport, dining points, ATMs and so forth. It makes my travel really enjoyable - as compared to trains and buses that I used before for this route.

Modlin is an awful airport miles from anywhere, not least of all Warsaw itself and with few facilities on site. Its been clearly been designed by committee with no commercial or customer service considerations. It comes across to me as overpaid bureaucrats sneering at people for having the audacity to travel with low cost airlines instead of making them feel like valued customers. It feels like someones gone through some kind of check list without understanding the importance of the constituent parts of that list.

Hi I used www.ModlinTransport,pl for transfer from Modlin Airport to Warsaw Centre on the 23rd November and a return on the 26th. Both cars were spotlessly clean as were the drivers. The drivers were very polite and efficient, loading the bags for us. I will definitely use this company again.

I was supposed to be flying out of Warsaw Modlin to Manchester tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd January) but I am a little worried about which Warsaw airport I am now flying from, I have conflicting reports saying it will be Chopin and then others that suggest Modlin is going to reopen. Can anyone help me on this?

Both Ryanair and Wizz Air have extended the period before returning to Modlin to 15th January. Modlin flight are currently leaving and arriving from Okecie (Chopin) Airport. Surprised IYP hasn't kept this updated as its crucial news for many travellers.Modlin are trying to get away with repairs to the runway and with the hope they can completely relay it in March. Dont hold your breath though.

Poland,
Following weeks of continual distruption at Warsaw Modlin Airport, Wizz Air, the largest low-cost, low-fare airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today has taken the unprecedented decision to move all its Christmas operations from midnight 17th December until midnight 6th January from Modlin Airport (WMI) to Warsaw Chopin (WAW). This will assure normal winter operations over the Christmas peak travel period for over 55,000 passengers who otherwise would be subject to Modlin Airport’s lack of ILS infrastructure and massive flight disruptions and cancellations.

Hi folks,I have Ryanair flight that departs at 10.25 am from Modlin airport. I'm thinking of using the train + yellow-green bus solution, but I'm afraid that I won't be able to make it due the schedules of bus + train.The earliest train from Warszawa Centralna departs at 8.15 am and arrives in the Modlin train station at about 9.00 am.I wonder how much time it takes from the Modlin train station to Modlin airport? Google maps show a 13 min drive of 7.2 km. More importantly, at what time the buses start? :)Many thanks in advance for your answers.

I took a door to door transfer from the Modlin airport to the city center (with www.ABEverest.pl) for 40PLN/person. It was a shared taxi with other passagners. Very good experience! and not so expensive as a traditional taxi. They charge a little bit more than a bus but you travel in comfort.

I took this route twice, and bus to the Modlin train station seems as the best option for me. That is, i you are not in a big rush to get downtown. The train is super nice, airconditioned and brand new. For 12zl, well worth
