Most flights to Warsaw arrive at the Chopin Airport, located in the southern part of the city. Some low costs airlines arrive in the Modlin Airport, located 30 km. north of Warsaw. Information below refers to the Chopin Airport.
Some hotels offer their own shuttle service from the airport – check with your hotel whether they provide such an option.
A taxi ride from the Chopin Airport to a hotel in the center takes around 20 minutes (longer in peak traffic) at a cost of approximately 40.00 - 50.00PLN (Please note: after 10:00 pm and on weekends, the per kilometer rate increases by 50%). At the airport, be sure to avoid independent taxi drivers (they usually charge much higher rates). Beware of individuals who offer transport services at the exit from the arrival area. Head directly to the corporate taxi stand right outside the arrivals hall. Most taxi companies accept credit cards, but please double check before the ride.

For those staying close to the conference venue we recommend taking bus no. 175 which runs from the Chopin Airport (it stops at the third lane in front of the exit from the arrivals terminal) to the city center, and passes directly in front of the university central campus, where the conference venue is located.
For public transport you should buy the ticket in advance in one of the airport newspaper kiosks or in a vending machine on the bus. A single ride ticket is 4,40 PLN, a ticket valid for 24 hours is 15,00 PLN, and a 3-day pass is 30,00 PLN. The tickets become valid when punched in a yellow box (to be found on the bus).
Please remember that 175, being the airport line, has been notorious for pickpockets.
