Getting around by air

Tickets

Fares vary greatly depending on the route, the time of year, and the day of the week. Poland’s high season is summer (June to August) and a short period around Christmas. The rest of the year is quieter and cheaper. Weekday flights tend to be more expensive than weekends, or trips that include a weekend stay.

For flights within Europe, travellers have the choice of dozens of major, full-fare carriers and budget carriers. Budget options from Britain are particularly good, as several low-cost carriers operate regular services from airports around the UK to airports throughout Poland.

The best advice is simply to shop around for the best deal, keeping in mind that you’re likely to pay less the further in advance you can plan your travel. If you’re booking on short notice (that is, less than around three or four weeks before departure), national carriers sometimes offer better prices than budget airlines.

On transatlantic and long-haul flights your travel agent is probably still the best source of cheap tickets, although there is an increasing number of online booking agencies. One feasible option is to find the best deal to a European hub, like London, and then try to find a budget flight from there. That might land you the cheapest deal, but bear in mind that budget airlines rarely use main airports, and you’re likely to have to change not just planes en route but airports too.

Poland’s national carrier is LOT. LOT offers regular service to Poland from throughout Europe, including from many capital cities. Outside Europe it has direct flights to/from New York, Chicago, Toronto, Tel Aviv and Beijing, among others.

Many national and major world carriers operate regular flights to Poland, normally between their national capital and/or large cities and Warsaw.

Additionally, several budget carriers service the Polish market. These usually service smaller airports such as Warsaw Modlin, Łódź, Katowice and Rzeszów, though some fly to Kraków as well.
