Located 17km west of the city centre, Kraków Airport was the subject of a one billion PLN investment, which resulted in the opening of a brand-new passenger terminal in September 2015. The new T1 terminal conveniently connects directly to the airport parking garage, the Hilton Garden Inn hotel next to it, and the new Balice train station via a skywalk leading straight into the terminal. Terminal 1 now boasts the full services and amenities of a modern airport, including ATMs and currency exchange, tourist information, car rental desks, restaurants and shops, new business lounges and VIP services. Though some construction work is still on-going, it doesn't affect travellers; in fact getting through check-in and security is relatively speedy compared to most airports.
Getting to/from the Airport:
The best way to get between the airport and Kraków's Old Town is by train. Trains run reliably every 30mins between 04:00 and 24:00, departing from platform 3 of Kraków's train station (check rozklad-pkp.pl for exact departure times).
