Modlin Airport closure extended.

We've had an email from Ryanair to say that Modlin Airport is now closed until end April 'for safety reasons' and all flights will go into F Chopin airport.

This seems quite good news to us as it is a lot closer to the city.

What would be the best way to get to the old city - Castle Inn. I have a slight walking disability.

I got the same message and am also staying at the Castle Inn.

The easiest transport from Chopin Airport to Castle Square seems to be bus route 175 it takes about 45 minutes and costs under £1

There are many taxis waiting immediately outside the terminal at F. Chopin / Okecie airport. Just ignore the touts inside the building. Taxis are metred so you should not have any issues

Polish media have just announced that Modlin Airport will be closed to December 2013 or even January 2014.

What a shame! And what a tragedy for people employed directly or indirectly!

Yup, it's sad. Now we can expect that low-cost airlines like Ryanair may close some connections from/to Warsaw because Chopin airport is much more expensive than Modlin (and as far as I read - Modlin management does not want to cover this difference).

Wizzair won't ptobably cancel any routes. They had been at WAW for several years before moving to Modlin and even announced a new route to Kutaisi, Georgia today. I also expect Ryanair to cancel some routes, though, at least temorarily.

I also want to visit in future but I am even more interested in Armenia. You know that there are daily flights by LOT to Tbilisi?
