What to Expect

The area’s secondary airport, Warsaw Modlin Airport (code: WMI), handles low-cost carriers from a small, recently built terminal. Travellers report overcrowding and a lack of facilities like seating and bathrooms. Facilities include three eateries, both landside and airside, and a few basic shops, though none are open 24 hours. Free WiFi helps pass the time. Economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.
