Warsaw Airport delayed

Ryanair is to continue to operate its Warsaw flights to/from Warsaw Chopin Airport until 30 June 2013 at the earliest.  Runway repair works are still under way at the new Modlin budget airline airport, a former military air base which was hastily (too hastily) opened last summer just before the European Football Championship.  Wizz Air, which also moved in, is likewise affected.

On 22 December Modlin closed for 737 size aircraft for what is described as “safety work".

Ryanair has apologised to passengers (who have been informed by email) for any inconvenience caused and is keen to recommence from Modlin Airport once its runway is certified to be operational.

Warsaw’s main international airport, called Chopin after the composer, has been the destination of Ryanair’s flight to the Polish capital but withdrawn after CEO Michael O’Leary had objected to a rise in handling costs.  It is probably currently only paying the Modlin charges. www.ryanair.com www.modlinairport.pl
