Warsaw Chopin Airport serviced 2 mln passengers over summer holidays

Warsaw Chopin Airport served approximately two million passengers in July and August this year, which was a sign that the air traffic is slowly returning to normal, the airport’s press office reported.

The resumption of flights did not influence the number of individuals sent to quarantine, as in late August it was only 4 percent compared to 11 percent in May.

“August was the second month in a row when the capital’s airport serviced the millionth passenger. This is the best evidence not only that air traffic is slowly recovering from the pandemic interruption, but also that air travel is safe and does not contribute to the growth of COVID-19 cases,” said Stanisław Wojtera, the head of Polish Airports State Enterprise, quoted in the statement.

The percentage of positive results among people tested for COVID-19 also remained at a very low level. In August, out of more than 10,700 tested passengers, only 26 received a positive result.

It was stressed that diagnostic points at Warsaw Chopin Airport are thoroughly and regularly disinfected, while the airport services make every effort to ensure that there is no overcrowding during passenger check-in. With regard to the regulations in force, the airport authorities highlighted that nose and mouth should still be covered in all rooms.

The Chopin Airport in Warsaw is the largest airport in Poland. In 2020, the port handled 5.48 million passengers, which translated into a decrease of 70.9 percent compared to 2019.
