Book flights to Gdansk

Book direct flights to Gdansk with British Airways, and you’ll land in the city in just under two and a half hours. Situated on the Baltic coastline, Gdansk is one of Poland’s most scenic, cultured and historically important cities.

The Old Town’s cobblestone thoroughfares are lined with grand pastel-hued buildings, which were famously rebuilt after WWII, while the historical embankment is flooded with vibrant restaurants and beer gardens. Boutique stores sell amber trinkets, boats cruise along the river and fascinating museums invite you to take a step back in time.
