In the first half of the year a total of 13 new routes were opened, of which 3 non-European ones: Los Angeles, Newark, Astana. On 2 existing routes a second carrier launched its flights.
A further increase in the number of passengers transported is forecasted, due to the fact that at the end of June and in early July the second largest carrier at Chopin Airport - Wizz Air launched 7 connections, of which 4 on new routes. In August and September 2 destinations - to Gothenburg and Vilnius - are planned to be operated, the first one by the national carrier PLL LOT and the second by Wizz Air.
Chopin Airport in Warsaw is the largest airport in Poland. In 2016, the port has handled 12.8 million passengers – an increase by 14.4 percent than in 2015. The airport is managed by the “Polish Airports” State Enterprise, which employs more than 1.5 thousand people.
