First impressions? We love it!!!
It’s a sleek, cute, modern and sparkly new airport. Small enough so that you only need to be there 1hr before a flight to just check in and head straight to passport control. But big enough to have 3 shops, 1 cafe, 1 restaurant and a very useful information desk right in the centre. Once you go through check in, there’s also a small duty free shop as well as a cafe to enjoy a quick cup of coffee before boarding the flight.
Transport wise, the airport is very well connected – there’s a bus and a train between Lublin and the airport, which are synchronised with flight arrival and departure times (there are days of just 1 flight per day, how quaint is that?!). The train is great (departs from the Lublin train station), we tried it on the way back. It’s a swift hop and a jump and in 15mins (through pretty snow – nice!) you’re right in the middle of the mini airport and ready to check in! The bus also connects the airport to the Lublin train station. Price – the train will set you back a mere 5 sloty – only £1!! Seriously bargainous!
- If you don’t want to wait for the train or bus, you can also get a taxi from the airport, the taxi rank is just outside by the bus stop, and it’ll set you back 80 zloty (£15 approx). Remember to haggle as our starting price was £100 and we worked our way down to £80 🙂
Enjoy our pics of the brand-spanking new Lublin airport – so far flights go to London Stansted, Luton, Oslo, and we’re sure there’ll be more destinations to come!
