Getting from Poznan airport to the city centre
Poznan Airport (Lawica Airport) is located about 7 kilometres west of Poznan city centre.

The airport is conveniently connected to the old town by public transport. However, you need to change from bus to tram on the way.

Getting from Poznan Airport to city centre by bus and tram
A bus is the only option if you want to go from Poznan Airport to the city centre with public transport. There are bus stops just in front of the terminal, or about 300 metres away for two more buses. You may buy tickets at the ticket machine inside the terminal, onboard or with a mobile App (we recommend Jakdojade App)
During the day
There is a bus (route 159, direction “Poznan Glowny”) going from Poznan Airport to the main train station in Poznan. It departs every 20-30 minutes. To go to the city centre, you need to get off the bus one stop before the train station (Rondo Kaponiera bus stop). There you need to change to the tram that goes towards the city centre (lines 2, 5, 8, 13). The whole trip should take no more than 45 minutes, so a 45-minute ticket (6 PLN) should be enough. There are two more buses (177, 148), but they don’t depart from the airport. To board them, you need to get to the bus stop “Malechowska” located about 300 meters from the airport.
To get from Poznan Airport to the city centre at night, you need to get on bus 222 from the airport (direction Mogilenska) and get off one stop before the train station (Rondo Kaponiera bus station). There you need to get on bus number 231, and leave at the bus stop “Wroclawska”. From here you need to walk for about 5 minutes. The whole trip at night should take about 55 minutes, so you need a 90-minute ticket (8 PLN).

Getting to city centre by taxi
iTaxi is the taxi company recommended by the airport. To take that taxi you need to install their app from Google Store or Apple Store, and use it to book the taxi.

Uber or FreeNow are usually better and safer, as you always know the price before entering the vehicle. Avoid non-corporate taxis, as most frauds are reported after riding with them.
