The spokeswoman said that PPL is conducting talks with carriers and tour operators regarding increasing the offer and developing the network of air connections from the Radom airport.

– We are also trying to obtain environmental consent to perform flight operations at night. If we obtain it, we will certainly become even more attractive to airlines, noted Dermont.

Port connection network

During the first year of operation, four carriers operated from the Radom airport: PLL LOT, Enter Air, Wizz Air and Skyline Express. Trips departing from the Radom port were offered by 7 travel agencies: ITAKA, Rego Bis, Coral Travel, TUI, Nekera, Greckie Podróże and Anex Tour.

The airport served both regular and charter flights. The flight network includes a total of eight destinations: Rome, Paris, Preveza, Tirana, Varna, Antalya, Sharm el-Sheikh and Larnaca.

LOT Polish Airlines maintains cooperation with the airport in Radom, offering connections to: Rome, Tirana, Ohrid and Preveza this season. Wizz Air, which has been operating to Larnaca since December 2023, will maintain flights to Cyprus also in the summer. Travel agencies' holiday offers include trips departing from Radom to: Antalya (Turkey), Tirana (Albania) and Podgorica (Montenegro).

When was the airport in Radom established?

The airport in Radom began operations in May 2014. For a short time, flights from this city operated, among others, to Riga, Berlin, Wrocław and Lviv. It was the only public use airport in Poland that was built without EU support. The city invested over PLN 100 million in its creation.

After the court announced the bankruptcy of the municipal company that runs the airport, Port Lotniczy Radom, in 2018, the airport was bought by Polish Airports and built almost from scratch.
