FAQHere you can find answers for frequently asked questions.
Łódź has its own airport, the Lodz Airport! It isn’t very big, but is constantly upgraded and developed. You can reach Łódź from London, East Midlands, and Dublin. If you are going to fly from or to Łódź directly, you will fly with Ryanair. During the vacation season, expect around 4 flights here per week, one per destination. The good thing about Lodz Airport is that it is located only 7 km from the city center! That is 30 minutes trip when using city transport, or 15 minutes when taking a car, such as MrShuttle door-to-door airport transfer. However, you might want to reach Łódź from other cities than those 4. What then? Well, Łódź is located pretty much in the center of Poland, so there are many OTHER airports that are within a car trip distance! Warsaw, Pyrzowice and Kraków all offer much better international connections than Lodz Airport, and are within airport transfer distance. Contact MrShuttle - we will help you plan your trip and figure out if you are better off reaching Łódź from Lodz Airport, or one of the other cities. In either case, we can offer you a fast, efficient, no-stress door-to-door transport. A ride from Krakow takes 3,5h, Pyrzowice - 2,5h, and Warsaw is only 1,5h away. As you can see, it can certainly be cheaper and fly to one of these cities and take a ride to reach Łódź, rather than try to fly to Lodz Airport jumping planes.
There are many interesting nature and landscape parks near Łódź. If you prefer man-made architecture, well, you are in luck! You can find many amazing examples of Polish buildings nearby, especially castles. Visit Inowłódz, Oporowo and Łęczyca for some great experiences!
