Poznań-Ławica Airport (IATA: POZ, ICAO: EPPO), built in 1913, is one of the oldest airports in Poland. It is located 5 km (3.1 mi) west of Poznań city centre. It takes its name from the neighborhood of Ławica, part of the city's Grunwald district (the airport lies in Jeżyce district).


The northern section has been used as a military airport since its inception in 1913 as an Imperial German airbase till 23 December 2009. The southern section is used for civilian purposes. The prospect of relocating the airport elsewhere is often raised as a result of the flight path to the runway being located directly over the city.

The airport caters for international, domestic and cargo flights and general aviation. A new terminal was opened in 2001 and can handle up to 1.5 million passengers per year.

Confusion with Poznań-Krzesiny military airport

Poznań-Ławica airport has been confused by pilots with a nearby airbase, Poznań-Krzesiny Airbase (ICAO code: EPKS), which also has a 2,500 m (8,200 ft) runway. The two runways are at approximately the same orientation: Ławica's is 11/29 (true heading: 108/288) and Krzesiny's is 12/30 (true heading: 117.9/297.9). The two runways lie in a nearly straight line, with Krzesiny coming up first on approaches from the East, the ones used most often. On the other hand, the Krzesiny airbase has two runways, and lies southeast from the city centre, while Poznań-Ławica lies just west of it. On 15 August 2006, a Turkish charter flight from Antalya Airport, Antalya, Turkey to Poznań-Ławica, Sky Airlines SHY335 Boeing 737, mistakenly landed at 19:50 local time at the Poznań-Krzesiny airfield.

According to Krzysztof Krawcewicz, a pilot and the editor-in-chief of the Polish aviation monthly Przegląd Lotniczy/Aviation Revue, this was at least the seventh mistaken aircraft that landed at the Poznań-Krzesiny airfield in 2006 alone. He faults, among others, the "scandalous procedures which are in use by the air traffic control at Poznań-Ławica", and the lack of radar use in controlling aircraft landing, which actually exists, but has been turned off by the Polish Air Traffic Agency (Agencja Ruchu Lotniczego).
