Air travel within Polish airspace is picking up but it is still below the level recorded before the coronavirus pandemic, figures released by the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PAZP) have shown.

The number of air operations (take-offs and landings) at all Polish airports rose by 150 percent year on year in December 2021, the agency reported on Wednesday.

This result is however down by 213 percent compared to the air operations recorded in December 2019.

Poland's largest airport, in Warsaw, recorded a 125-percent year-on-year increase in air traffic in December 2021, but a 30-percent decrease compared to December 2019.
