Getting here

Throughout its thousand-year history, Gdansk has never been so closely connected to Europe, with Airbaltic, Finnair, KLM, Lufthansa, Norwegian Air, LOT, Ryanair, SAS and Wizzair planes landing regularly at the city’s airport. Charter traffic is also steadily growing. In total, you can reach Gdansk from over 60 cities! Some carriers (low-cost airlines) offer excellent prices. Provided you buy the tickets in advance and on appropriate days, you might be able to fly to Gdansk for as little as 25 EUR! Most of the direct flights involve connections to and from cities in Great Britain (11), Norway (9) and Germany (5). Reykjavík and Tromsø are the northernmost destinations you can reach from Gdansk, extending to Eilat in Israel to the South, Lisbon to the West and Kharkiv to the East. Detailed map of all connections can be found here.
