Łódź Władysław Reymont Airport (IATA: LCJ, ICAO: EPLL), formerly known as Łódź-Lublinek Airport, is a regional airport in central Poland, located approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) southwest of the Łódź city center.

The airport has been in operation since September 13 1925 and has recently undergone a number of upgrades enabling it to handle services by low cost airlines to destinations in Europe.

It has recently been named after the celebrated 20th century Polish writer and the winner of the 1924 Nobel Prize in Literature, Władysław Reymont.

History

The Łódź airport opened on September 13 1925. During World War II, the German occupying forces improved the airport for military use, by building a concrete 1,200 m (3,937 ft) runway. In the immediate postwar years the airport was a key transport hub, but that role diminished by the 1950s with the development of Warsaw airport. By the end of the decade, regular passenger connections to Łódź were suspended.

Efforts to restart passenger traffic were undertaken in the 1990s. In 1997 a new passenger terminal (capacity approx. 50,000/year) was opened.

Since 1997 Port Lotniczy Łódź-Lublinek sp. z o.o. (Lodz-Lublinek Airport LLC) has been the operator of the airport, changing its name in 2007 to Port Lotniczy Łódź im. Władysława Reymonta Sp. z o.o. (LODZ WLADYSLAW REYMONT AIRPORT LLC).

On October 31 2002 an ILS/DME System (instrument landing system/distance measuring equipment) was installed at the airport.

In September 2005 the runway was extended from 1,443 m (4,734 ft) to 2,100 m (6,890 ft) in order to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Boeing 737.

On October 28 2005 a new passenger terminal (capacity approx. about 300,000/year) was opened.

On October 30 2005 the first Boeing 737 in the history of the Łódź Airport landed.

On January 19 2007 the runway extension to 2,500 m (8,202 ft) was put into use.

Despite Łódź being Poland's third largest city, it has one of the smallest international airports in the country. Bydgoszcz, Gdańsk, Poznań, Rzeszów and Wrocław are all examples that have larger airports, but smaller cities. Łódź is mainly served by Ryanair, which still has a very small presence at the airport and currently only flies to six destinations from Łódź, significantly less than many other Polish airports. The airlines and destinations served from Łódź are shown in the table below.

Airlines Destinations
Ryanair Dublin, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London-Stansted, Milan-Orio al Serio [begins 31 October]
Sun d'Or Airlines Tel Aviv
Wizz Air Dortmund, Stockholm-Skavsta [begins 18 December]
