Air travel within Polish airspace increased in November but it is still below the level recorded before the coronavirus pandemic, figures released by the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PAZP) showed.

PAZP reported on Tuesday that the number of air operations (take-offs and landings) at all Polish airports had picked up by 148 percent year on year in November.

This result is however down by 23 percent compared to the number of air operations recorded in November 2019.

Poland's largest airport, Chopin Airport in Warsaw, recorded a 128-percent year-on-year increase in air traffic in November 2021, but a 34-percent decrease compared to November 2019.
