Between January and September 2017, 10.42 million passengers were traveling in international traffic (an increase of about 20%) and in domestic traffic - 1.62 million (68% more). Currently one in four passengers uses the Chopin Airport as a transit point.
"The observed increase is mainly due to the greater number and frequency of connections, larger aircraft performing flights and higher load factor. It is also a result of greater interest of Poles in spending their holidays abroad," says Hubert Wojciechowski, director of the Marketing and PR Office of Warsaw Chopin Airport. "We are delighted that such a large number of passengers treat our airport as a hub," he adds.
In September, Warsaw Chopin Airport introduced important and practical changes for passengers - free drinking water and telephones, which allow making free calls to national fixed and mobile numbers.
