Cheap flights to Krakow Airport

Krakow Airport (KRK), officially known as the John Paul II International Airport, serves the historic city of Krakow in southern Poland. The airport is especially popular with tourists and has connections with many other airports, primarily throughout Europe. If you are looking for the cheapest flights to Krakow, Skyscanner's monthly search feature can help you find which time of the year offers the best prices.

Best time to book a flight to Krakow

Krakow has a certain magic to it no matter the season. Summer, with its warm weather, is the high season. While the city is enjoyable then, the crowds of tourists might be a bit much to handle. Spring and fall are a bit on the cool side, but the city is still beautiful and you can get some great deals on flights and hotels. While winters can certainly be cold, seeing Krakow's historic architecture blanketed in snow is quite a sight. Krakow also has Poland's oldest Christmas Market, making winter a good time to visit, especially considering that flights are also cheaper then.

What to expect when arriving at the airport

The Krakow Airport is located about 12 km west of the city centre. A new train service runs from the airport to the main train station. It can be found at the rear of the multi-storey parking lot. Trains run every 30 minutes and take about 20 minutes. Airport taxis are located at the exits of Terminals 1 and 2. They are convenient, but also far more expensive than the train. Make sure the meter is turned on. Finally, if you plan on venturing outside of Krakow's historic centre you may want to rent a car from one of the agencies located in the arrivals lounge.

Airport facilities

Krakow Airport is a modern facility that was recently renovated. You can find food offerings throughout the airport both before and after security, with some bars and restaurants not closing until the last flight of the day has departed. You can also shop for luggage, cosmetics, jewellery, tobacco, alcohol, and souvenirs in the passenger terminal. Most shops and restaurants are located on the upper floor. There are also two business lounges, one for Schengen passengers the other for non-Schengen passengers. There are also two currency exchanges, both on the ground floor, one at check-in and one at arrivals, as well as six ATMs located both before and after security. Free WiFi is also available, but only for 15 minutes at a time.
