Warsaw Chopin Airport serviced 10.7 million passengers in the first nine months of the year, three quarters of what it handled before the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Since the beginning of the year, Warsaw's airport serviced almost 10,700,000 passengers, which is 74.5 percent of the figure recorded during the same period in the pre-pandemic year 2019," the airport said in a news release on Thursday.

Over 90 percent of passengers travelled on international routes, including 60 percent within the Schengen zone.

In September alone, Warsaw Chopin Airport handled 1.59 million passengers, or 85 percent of the September 2019 figure.

Poland's national airline LOT serviced most passengers between January and September, close to 5.5 million.
