The airfield was closed in 2000 by the Polish Ministry of National Defence. It had no usable runway, and there were no lights or radios. Once it was converted to civilian use, there was interest in opening the airport again. It reopened in 2012.

Frequently Asked Questions

Duty free shopping is when you can purchase goods that have had the duty/tax (usually taxes like import, VAT, and sales tax) waivered by the government, therefore reducing the prices that you would normally expect to pay in a standard shop or website. Duty free shops are usually found at airports or sea terminals, but you can also sometimes purchase duty free goods during international flights or on cruises.

Anyone travelling internationally (between two different countries) is eligible to purchase duty free items.

The term 'duty' refers to the tax that you pay if you bring a product from one country to another. i.e. if you bought some perfume in the United Kingdom, and then flew to Germany you might have to pay tax in both countries. Most governments do not charge the duty on products bought when you are leaving that country, which means that the customer doesn't have to pay the tax twice. This usually only applies when you are leaving the country, i.e. it is for export purposes only.

As the price for items bought in duty free shops often have the duty taken off the RRP, it can make them a lot cheaper than if you bought the goods in a normal shop. However, there are usually limits on how much you can buy on your trip, and these limits will vary from country to country, and also vary from item to item (i.e. there will be different limits on alcohol and cigarettes).

The most popular items in duty free shops are usually the products that are most heavily taxed, i.e. alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco. Duty free inventories will vary from country to country, and also from airport to airport. In larger airports, you may even find different prices in the numerous shops - remember it's always best to shop around! Make sure you check our database to see all the shops at each airport, and then you can invesigate the prices at each one.

Sadly, you can't just turn up at a duty free shop with several empty suitcases and fill them up with goodies! Restrictions will be in place, and these can vary from country to country. You will only be allowed to buy certain amounts of different types of products. Tobacco, alcohol, and perfumes are usually the products that are most likely to be subject to the stricter allowances. Make sure you check whilst purchasing, or else you run the risk of your items being confiscated upon arrival at your destination's customs.

No. Duty free is only available to travellers who are flying from one country to another country.

Modlin Airport Reviews

Small terminal, poor choice of shops (literally: one), but the biggest disadvantage is the way you get into airplane - after passing boarding gate, passangers are being forced to wait outside for about 10-20 minutes, despite of the wateher. In the summer it's too hot, in autumn or winter - one's freezing to death.
- Maciej Nowicki

My opinion may be a little bit influenced by the day of the departure. Because it was 1st of January the airport was very empty and all the airport services were very smooth and quick.
- Jan

Shop prices are much too high, than the reasonable level. Everything else ok - it is not a huge intercontinental airport. It just suits the purpose of budget travelling.
- Piotr

Najgorsze lotnisko na świecie! Nie daj Panie wylądować jak jest zimno albo leje deszcz. Bądź pewien, zmokniesz i zmarzniesz!!! Wolę zapłacić dwa razy więcej za bilet, aby tylko tam nie lądować!
- Mirosław Drożdż

The worst airport I have ever been to. There is one vital problem: you have to wait for boarding standing outdoors, in open area with hevay wind, rain, and cold. It is not a problem only in the winter because it happens aprox.10 month due to polish weather...
- Remico

In my opinion, it's the best airport in Poland. There are a lot of bus carriers to Warsaw and other cities. Check-in was fast. There are some shops.
- Miłek Kaczmarek

Drugie Warszawskie lotnisko, całkiem fajne. Dobry dojazd z miasta KM lub Modlinbusem. Kontrola bezpieczeństwa szybka i sprawna (wtorek, drugi lot), bez jakiejkolwiek kolejki. WiFi szybkie i darmowe. W sklepach drogo, standard jak to na lotniskach.
- Marcin

Very poor and narrow airport. You have to spend about 15 minutes outside under the shed in winter time as well. Do not expect a lot. Cheap as the only airline operated from Modlin.
- Krzysztof

Moving pax procedure from terminal to the airplane is horrible. Pax wait obout 20 min outside when temperature is -7 C !!! This is AIRPORT or what ??Shame
