In Polish News, Travel

Warsaw’s Frederic Chopin Airport released its passenger data for April 2017 and looks back at a sensational result. During last month, the airport handled 1.1 million passengers which represents a 24.3% increase compared to the same month in 2016.

April was not the only successful month for the airport this year. From January to the end of April 2017 the airport served over 4.1 million passengers – more than 27% compared to the same period in 2016. The airport says that such dynamic growth is also thanks to new routes launched by the airlines. In April, LOT launched two new connections, one to Los Angeles and one to Newark.

– This year’s growth is higher than our forecast. We assumed that in the first four months of the year we will serve 3.8 million passengers – explains Mariusz Szpikowski, chief director of the State Enterprise “Airports” and Director of Chopin Airport in Warsaw.

The coming months are just as interesting. From Warsaw, a total of nine new routes will be launched with five new airlines joining Warsaw Airport.

PLL LOT will launch flights to Astana, Kaliningrad, Podgorica, Pula, Stuttgart. Wizz Air will offer flights to Agadir, Billund, Santander, Bratislava, Lyon and the port of Lamezia Terme.

Chopin Airport in Warsaw is the largest airport in Poland. In 2016, the port handled 12.8 million passengers – up 14.4 percent than in 2015. The airport is managed by the State Enterprise “Porty Lotnicze”, which employs more than 1.5 thousand people.
