Łódź Airport is located in the southwestern part of the city at a distance of 6 km from the center. The location of Łódź Airport allows for quick access to the city center (for example Piotrkowska street) and to the Łódź Kaliska railroad station. In a dozen minutes you can reach Łódź hotels and shopping centers. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the Łódź Fabryczna main railway station.

How to get from the airport to the city center?


Direct access to the airport is provided by public transport buses: 65B. Stops are located directly in front of the terminal entrance.


When it comes to using cabs, it’s safest to use cab corporations that have clearly defined rules for charging the cost of a ride. So instead of getting into a cab waiting at a stop, it is better to order one by phone or use a dedicated mobile app.
