Looking in VT Warsaw pages .. i read a lot, and the most of them bad about this airport, and the pickpockets and bagsnatchers and so on.. well we got there at 21h and it was quite and normal place doesnt look an airport
i have to say for more people who arrive there that there are 2 terminals , if u flight with easyjet ..once time outside u have towalk straight ahead to the other terminal (domestic flights) , just 5 minutes
In front of this domestic terminal there is the bus stop which runs to the downtonw in 15 minutes as much as .
here (in the bus) we got a trouble that luckily didnt ruin our trip..i explain..be so much carefull if you look like an outsider to move togheter into the bus...cos the pickpockets tried to stop u when you want to gett of and on ur back there is one "friend" of the first trying to steal whatever from your backpack.. it was our case but we get luck and locals in the bus warned about it!!!! great for polish people !!!!

***NEW from 1st December 2005
So now that my "AirPolonia" problem was solved, I could start a search for a new flight.
Via the travel search engine: www.comparflight.com, I found a decent flight towards Poland. So I booked a LOT flight at www.travelprice.com, they gave the best flight schedule / price combination.
So I booked a morning flight from Brussels towards Warsaw (1st of May), and an evening return flight from Warsaw to Brussels (9th of May).
Both flights were very quiet and the flight time was about 1h50, on board there was a good service with drinks and sandwiches (even with smoked salmon).
By the way LOT is also a member of the Star Alliance group, so I even collected some flight miles on my Thai Royal Orchid frequent flyer account.
As I started with my planning of my Poland trip (in November 2004), I just wanted to visit Warsaw and Krakow.
After a short search, I found a cheap flight to Poland, with AirPolonia, which was flying from Charleroi - Belgium.
The price for the return flight (Charleroi - Krakow - Charleroi) was 92 euro . . . . Cheap, he
But then a dark Sunday in December (6th of December 2004), AirPolonia suddenly stopped flying. Passengers with a departure before end of March could change their ticket for a light to Poland with Wizz Air. As I was going in May, that did not count for me.
Several mails towards AirPolonia stayed unanswered. So I really thought that I had lost my money. So I launched my question on the travel forum of this great site, and och yes there came an answer. Great member Adam_UK gave me the tip to try to get my money back via my Credit Card Company (Visa).
I followed his advice and wrote a letter to Visa, explaining that I had paid for a service I would never receive, and wonder och wonder, 3 weeks later the paid sum was back on my account. (Thank You, Adam_UK)
So now I could look for a new flight. And now I booked a LOT flight.
Warsaw can be easily accessed by plane - is it a surprise to you?
LOT Polish Airlines, quite expensive

Warsaw was seemingly one of the few European capitals not to be on the schedules of the budget air brigades. The situation changed in May of this year when Air Polonia began to operate between Warsaw and London Stansted. since it has been joined by several other carriers - Wizz Air (to Luton) and Sky Europe (to Stansted) being among them. Having used two of them myself and knowing people who've used one of the others, I can say that they all provide a good, reliable service at a price which wins hands down against the established carriers on routes between the UK and Poland.
the Warsaw Frederic Chopin's Airport is your first place to see:-)
It is the modern, moderate in size airport located in Warsaw, approx. 20-minute cab ride from the downtown.
For more information on the airport please see its website.
When you are arriving in Warsaw using one of the budget carriers check which terminal you are landing at. Until May I didn't realise that all flights to Warsaw didn't arrive at Oksecike.
I travelled with Airpolonia from Stanstead and landed at Etiuda which is a few minutes walk from the main building. This building has no facilties for food, drink, or any other purchases once you have cleared custom control. Make sure that you have a bottle of water with you because you can't even get a drink of water.
I flew into Warsaw on LOT. My backpack did not. They were quite helpful in sorting it out, but it took two days to get it back. The food was a disaster and the plane was full of fidgety, unruly kids. However, I expect my backpack shortly so things should calm down a bit.
If you are looking for a budget way to arrive to Warsaw by plane make sure that you check out this website - www.airpolonia.com !
Good luck with finding dirt cheap and reliable flight with Airpolonia! For now they operate only from some major locations in Europe.
The airport offers direct flights to many major European and international destinations such as London, Brussels, Amsterdam and Cyprus.
The national carrier LOT is of a reasonably high standard and is certainly comparable (if not higher) in quality than KLM.
From personal experience, this is one of the most punctual airports that I have flown out from. No flight I have ever taken has been more than 15 minutes late and most have actually left a few minutes early.
Warsaw airport is about 10 km from the city centre. It has a post office, a bank, exchange bureaux, cash machines, a restaurant, a fast-food bar, a coffee bar, souvenir hsops and car rental. There is also the tourist information office at the Arrival Hall.
Warsaw has three large railway stations for international and intercity connections: Western Warsaw Station, Central Warsaw Station, Eastern Warsaw Station. The best place to get on and off trains is the Central Station.
Warsaw's municipal transport consists of trams, city buses, suburban buses and the underground (metro). Bus numbers differ. There are regular city lines, which run every day, as well as periodic city lines, which run on work days and during peak hours.
Warsaw has a fine airport served by many airlines. I flew from Moscow and departed by train.
on Aeroflot flight to Warsaw - somewhere over Poland
Taxi from the airport to downtown was about $8
