John Paul II International Airport in Kraków – Balice

John Paul II International Airport in Kraków – Balice is the biggest regional airport in Poland.
It dates back to 1964, when military authorities shared 10 ha for needs of a civil entity and
granted authorizations for using aviation facilities. In this year, the first scheduled PLL LOT
aircraft landed there. In the neighbourhood of this airport, there is located the 8th Military
Transport Aviation Base.
Thanks to this airport, a lot of tourists have an opportunity to explore the fantastic city of
Cracow and not only this one – you can travel from there to other cities situated in the
