Im Flying To Poland In Feb, Info Please.

Thu Nov 29, 2007 10:56 am

Me and my wife will be flying out to Poland in Feb, 18th 08, LTN/Warsaw-Okecie/Federic Chopin (warsaw) with Easyjet. for one week,with free accomodation, just the return flight for £114.46. Its going to be our first ever trip to Poland and iv'e been told its going to get really cold out their.

But the question is, can i do my spotting at the airport without being moved on by the airport Authority or the police and is their a fee to pay for using the spotting area if they have one that is.

Thanks in advance

Can't answer your question precisly, but there must be some good points to spot, as the normally inbound active runway is crossing highway and a business park or something like that. Probaly some polish collegues will tell more !!

According to the airport guide there is an observation deck

Cost is 4 PLN and there is a security check before admission. it says observation but nothing about photos.

Come out of the old Terminal arrivals and turn right. There is a viewing area there on top of the terminal with good views.

This photo was taken from the gallery.
