Fly direct to Warsaw with British Airways and explore one of Eastern Europe’s most underrated tourist destinations. Warsaw’s wide avenues and new skyscrapers give it a big city feel, but the Polish capital also has a peaceful side to it too.
Wander around the Neoclassical streets in its (inappropriately named) New Town district and discover beautiful parks surrounding the reconstructed baroque palaces at Wilanów and Łazienki. Its huge 19th century opera and ballet theatre is one of Eastern Europe’s best, while Warsaw has clusters of cosy bars in the back streets around the reconstructed old avenue at Nowy Świat. Warsaw flights are also a starting point for journeying further into Poland. Within a few hours of the city are the medieval university town of Torun, Białowieża Forest, a pristine woodland that’s home to Europe’s last bison, and Kraków, Poland’s immaculately preserved second city.
Flights to Warsaw from London Heathrow take 2 hours 20 minutes. Warsaw airport is located only 6 miles from the city centre, making onward travel by train or bus especially convenient. Due to Covid-19, schedules and airports are subject to change. For the latest information, check our timetable.

The short distance from Warsaw airport to the city centre is covered by an express train service lasting 25 minutes, as well as an express bus route. Warsaw currently has a single line metro, extending to two lines in late 2014, and an extensive tram and bus network.
Warsaw airport has several good restaurants and cafés, the best of which is arguably the canteen-style Sami Swoi, located after security, which serves traditional Polish dishes. For shopping, Keraniss (also after security) sells a wide variety of local products from Polish food to artisan cosmetics, while the airport’s public area has a typically Polish touch – a flower shop selling bouquets to present to arriving guests.
