Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport
Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport is the busiest airport in Poland, handling more than half of the nation's air traffic, with over nine million passengers passing through the airport annually. Located just 10 km (6 miles) south-west of central Warsaw, journey time to the centre often hinges on the traffic, although it will rarely take more than 15 to 30 minutes.
A new transport terminal has opened at the airport in front of the South Pier outside Arrivals. Bus number 175 runs frequently between the airport and the city centre from 5am-11pm; tickets cost Zl3.60 and the journey takes 30 minutes. If you're arriving after 11pm, bus number N32 runs to the city centre every half hour throughout the night. Bus 331 runs between the airport and Wilanowska Metro station, and routes 148 and 188 also go into the city centre stopping nearby the major hotels.
Cabs stand outside the terminal although visitors should be wary of unlicensed rogue operators hawking their services. Make sure the taxi has a sign on the roof as well as a rate card in the window. The journey into central Warsaw will take between 15 and 30 minutes and should cost approximately Zl40. Most major hotels offer pre-booked pick-ups at the airport.
Drive to and from the city centre by following ul.Zwirki i Wigury. The road takes you into the heart of the city and the journey will take anything from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the traffic. Car hire is available pre-security in the Departures Hall.
