The Polish capital gained its second international airport last week with the opening of Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia. The airport is expected to be mainly used by low-cost carriers as an alternative to the main Warsaw Chopin International airport and handle up to 5,000 passengers per day. Previously a military airfield, it has the IATA code of WMI and is about 40km (25 miles) northwest of the Polish capital.
Ryanair has already moved in and Wizz Air plans to transfer all Warsaw operations to Modlin in future.
The airport has a 2,500m (8,200ft) runway and parking positions for 10 narrow-body aircraft. A newly built 12,000m² (129,000ft²) terminal can accommodate around 5,000 passengers a day, although this could be expanded in future.
Poland's tourism board says only limited shopping facilities have been made available at the airport in order to keep costs down.
Passengers wanting to travel by train between the hub and Warsaw need to use a shuttle bus to the train station in Modlin, located around 4km from the airport. www.modlinairport.pl
