Leading airports in Poland 2017-2019

The air transportation market in Poland is developing at a fast pace. Between 2019 and 2035, the number of passengers handled by Polish airports is expected to more than double and reach over 94 million passengers. In 2019, the undisputed leader among Polish airports was Chopin Airport in Warsaw, which handled a record number of passengers exceeding 18.8 million.

Air transportation in Central and Eastern Europe

Although the aviation industry in Central and Eastern Europe is still not a threat to the highly developed competition from Western Europe, the air transport market in these countries is growing gradually. And while the Western market seems to be already saturated in this industry, there is still much room and opportunity for growth in the CEE region. The largest airports in the CEE countries have experienced significant increases in passenger traffic, particularly airports in Ukraine, which achieved a record growth of 20 percent. Whereas airports in Poland serviced more than 22 million passengers, strengthening Chopin Airport in Poland as a leader among airports in Central and Eastern Europe. Hungarian WizzAir remains the largest carrier in the region.

LOT Polish Airlines

The acquisition of German Condor by LOT Polish Airlines in 2020 strengthened LOT's position in the European aviation market. It is expected that with the take-over of Condor Airlines, the number of passengers handled by LOT will almost double. The Polish carrier is also improving its financial situation. After years of losses, LOT may finally record a success, achieving net profit on sales of 225 million zloty in 2018.
