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).
