Lodz set to welcome SkyUp Airlines; Ryanair offering three routes

Located right in the centre of present day Poland, Lodz is the third-largest city in Poland and lies around 120 kilometres south-west of Warsaw. The airport serving Lodz, upgraded with a new passenger terminal in 1997, is located just six kilometres south-west of the city centre.

Passenger numbers reached a peak of almost 450,000 in 2012, having more than doubled since 2006. The main drivers of this growth during that period were Ryanair and Wizz Air. Ryanair was already serving Dublin, East Midlands and London STN in 2006, but added additional routes to Bremen, Bristol, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Milan BGY and Oslo RYG in the following six years. Wizz Air launched its first services to Lodz from Dortmund (in March 2010), Stockholm NYO (in December 2010) and London LTN (in September 2011). All have since been abandoned as the airline focuses on its Warsaw WAW base. Meanwhile, for S21, Ryanair has cut its Lodz network back to just its three 2006 routes.

LOT Polish Airlines does not serve the airport but fellow Star Alliance member Lufthansa began a Munich service in March 2018 using CRJ 900s. Unfortunately the route was suspended in October 2019.

New routes with SkyUp Airlines to Ukraine (Kiev KBP and Lviv) are set to launch this summer, while there are also set to be charter flights to various destinations in Greece and Turkey. In 2023 Lodz is scheduled to host Routes Europe.
