Copernicus Airport Wrocław is riding a wave that started with the low-fare revolution. Sebastian Schmitz reviews its history, and hears about its prospects from Sales and Marketing Director Jarosław Sztucki.
Wrocław, the fourth largest city in Poland, has just over 630,000 inhabitants. It was the European Capital of Culture in 2016 and is the capital of Lower Silesia, a region that is one of the most dynamic and fast growing in the country. Although its industry is vital, the picturesque old town with its market square and churches, is also a tourist draw and particularly in the summer the banks of the River Oder are crowded with visitors from the rest of Poland, and from across Europe. The demand for travel has been well tended to by the quickly enlarging route network radiating from Copernicus Airport, which has simplified access to western Poland.
