Commenting on the results, Radoslaw Paruzel, deputy director of Chopin Airport, said: “Once again we were able to beat the record of the number of passengers handled with significantly reduced flight operations. This shows that airplanes are flying less often, but are almost fully booked. This is very good news for the airlines, who also achieved very good results at our airport”
