Arriving at Gdansk airport
Gdansk airport (also known as “Lech Walesa airport”) is located only 10 kms/6 miles from Gdansk city centre. This makes airport transfers relatively cheap.
There are several ways to get from Gdansk airport to the city centre.
1/ Airport taxi from Gdansk airport
You can catch a taxi from outside the arrivals hall at Gdansk airport but please avoid private taxis. It’s best to only use taxis with the phone numbers on the side of the vehicle and a light on the roof of the car. You can expect to pay around 60 Zloty (just over £ 10) for the trip to the city centre.
2/ Tele-taxis from from Gdansk airport
Tele taxis are the ones where you have to ring them to arrange a pick-up.
They are usually much cheaper than airport taxis and although airport taxis fares are not particularly expensive there are some who like to pay as little as possible and with a tele-taxi you should be able to save an additional 25% – 35% compared to airport taxis fares.
You will have to work a little harder for your savings in that you will have to contact a taxi company and communicate with them your time of arrival and where you will meet them at the airport. Many taxi companies speak English and it may be wise to make a preliminary call to the taxi company the day before your arrival just to be sure.
3/ Buses from Gdansk airport
The airport is well served by a few buses which will take you to the city centre in Gdansk or even Sopot.
The following bus lines operate from the airport
No 110 – to Gdansk
No 210 – to Gdansk
No 122 – to Sopot
There is also a night bus-N3, which will also take you into Gdansk
Journey time is approximately 40 minutes with a single fare ticket costing around 3.60 zloty.
4/ Private transfer from Gdansk airport
Although your hotel could probably arrange this for you it would probably work out cheaper if you source your own airport transfer and there are many companies with English language websites that advertise on the internet.
