From January till June, the biggest Polish airport handled over 5 million passengers. In June we noted a 7 percent increase in the number of handled passengers. Summer vacation and a modernised terminal invite more and more people to travel from Chopin Airport.

In June Chopin Airport handled 1 147 929 travellers (an 6,9% increase year-on-year). The number of passenger aircraft movements, both traditional and low-cost, increased by 2.24% totalling 11 569. The overall number of aircraft movements  was 13 239 (an 0.062 increase y-o-y).

Whole H1 was record-breaking: from January till June Warsaw airport handled over 5 million passengers (5 173 600), 7.4% more than in H1 2014. Over 4.6 million people have travelled in international traffic (an increase by 9.1%), and domestically 557 thousand (a decrease by 4.8%).

– Chopin Airport breaks record after record for several straight months. After opening the new part of Terminal A the number of passengers will grow month by month, year by year. Our goal is to serve 22 million people every year. That is the capacity of Chopin Airport after the modernisation. What makes us happy the most is the fact that not only the number of passengers grows, but also the level of their satisfaction, basing on the surveys conducted in the terminal – stresses Michał Kaczmarzyk, the general director of Polish Airports and director of Chopin Airport.
