I'll be travelling on the train (PKP Intercity) from Bydgoszcz to Warsaw Central to catch a mid-afternoon flight from Warsaw Chopin airport (LOT Airlines to Heathrow). Is a two-hour window between the train's scheduled arrival time and the flight's departure time likely to be sufficient, given that I need to check a bag? Is there a high risk that the train will be delayed? I'm happy to go by the quickest method (which I imagine would be a taxi?) even if it costs more.

    Taxi might be sligthly quickest than the suggested train. At the same time it might happen it's slower. The train connection is reliable and predictable (you check the time table). The downside is that you need to buy a separate ticket. Feb 3, 2020 at 22:26

You can take the train to the airport. You would have to change trains at Warsaw Zachodnia, from where a suburban train takes you to the airport in 15 minutes. You can probably do this all on one ticket even.

  • The PKP Intercity ticket won't be valid for the Chopin airport service as it's operated by a different entity. Feb 3, 2020 at 22:25
  • The PKP website however does suggest you can buy the IC and airport train ticket together. Feb 4, 2020 at 6:11
  • oh I didn't see that. Mine "only" offers a Bydgoszcz -> Łódź -> Chopin airport trip. Feb 4, 2020 at 6:21

    Well, the PKP site is not that easy to navigate. So some local input would be welcome. Feb 4, 2020 at 7:38
  • Thanks for your replies! I've already bought the ticket to Warsaw Central; will I be allowed to change at Warsaw Zachodnia if I buy a ticket from there to the airport?
