About the Host

Kraków Airport is located just 11 km west of Kraków’s city centre and has a wide catchment area of 11 million inhabitants within ca. two hour drive. What is also important the airport is situated near to the important communication routes in Poland and Europe with access to direct train and bus connections from the city centre.

Kraków Airport is a leader among regional airports in Poland, constantly expanding its schedule and charter direct services. In Summer 2015, about 70 connections are offered from Kraków Airport to airports scattered around Europe, including most European capitals and key transfer airports such as Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, Berlin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Paris, London, Rome, Zurich and Warsaw. The route map also includes cities with a special business, tourist, cultural and ethnic potential as well as attractive locations in the Mediterranean basin and Scandinavian region.

In 2014 the airport welcomed over 3.8 million passengers and it was the best year in history of the airport. Kraków Airport's development strategy assumes a further expansion of its network of direct connections and a growth in the number of passengers handled. The main guidelines for development include enlisting airlines that offer routes to European hub airports and further balanced development of LCC’s and Legacy’s carriers. In addition, the airport is also planning to develop eastbound routes and enlist a carrier offering long-distance flights. 

The airport is currently undergoing the biggest in its history construction process targeted for doubling its annual capacity already in 2015. The investments process includes: brand new, spacious terminal that will be connected, by means of a footbridge, with a new train station located behind the multi storey car park, internal road system, airside infrastructure and Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.
