Of all the cities in Europe, Warsaw has arguably experienced – and overcome – more of what history can throw than any other. After near-complete destruction during World War II, Poland’s capital was rebuilt and has grown into the thriving cosmopolitan city it is today, attracting visitors from the world over. To cater for the increasing number of British tourists eager to discover the resurgent city, flights to Warsaw are now offered from multiple UK airports all year round.
Warsaw’s continental climate mean its seasons vary from quite hot in the summer to very cold in winter. The warmest months, from May to September, mark peak tourist season, so cheap tickets to Warsaw may be more difficult to find for this period. The coldest months – January to March – also have the shortest days and heavy snowfall can often slow traffic in the city to a crawl. Spring and autumn are good times to travel with warm days and smaller crowds at the city’s many attractions.
Warsaw is conveniently located for UK tourists, and more and more of them are making the journey to the Polish capital every year. There are a range of options for air travel to the Polish capital. National airlines LOT-Polish Airways and British Airways both have daily return flights to Warsaw from London Heathrow, and the journey from Britain’s biggest transport hub is less than two and a half hours. If you’re looking to find cheap flights to Warsaw, then check out the offerings of low-cost carrier Ryanair, which provides a direct service from London Stansted. Lufthansa and SAS also provide indirect connections from Birmingham and Scottish travellers can book a one-stop flight with KLM to get to Warsaw from Edinburgh.
Warsaw Chopin Airport, located in the Włochy district of Poland’s capital city, is the main air-transport hub for the country. The airport is just over six miles southwest of the city centre and there are a number of excellent public transport options on hand to take you into the heart of Warsaw. The fastest way to town is to take the train from the station in Terminal A, which takes around 15 minutes. A number of bus routes serve the airport; lines 175 and 188 run regular connections throughout the day, while the N32 provides a nighttime service. There are also plenty of taxis outside the terminal building – but be sure to book at the official taxi stands, and not through the touts who may promise you a cheaper price.
