Rzeszów–Jasionka Airport (IATA: RZEICAO: EPRZ) is an international airport located in southeastern Poland, in Jasionka, a village 10 km (6.2 mi) from the center of the city of Rzeszów. It is the seventh-busiest airport in Poland.

History[edit]

On 2 June 2007 LOT Polish Airlines commenced seasonal Boeing 767-300ER services to New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark's Newark Liberty International Airport which since ceased again.

As of January 2008, the airport has had scheduled international flights to Dublin and London–Stansted, in addition to its domestic connection with Warsaw. It has also become a preferred arrival point for Jews on pilgrimage to the tomb of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk in Leżajsk usually in March.

In 2009–10, it registered 18.66% increase in passenger traffic serving 451720 passengers in 2010.[1] Coupled with the September 2006 start of the construction on a new passenger terminal, this means that the airport is undergoing a rapid expansion, albeit in fits and starts, owing to delays in setting up the management company and obtaining financing and routes. The new passenger terminal opened in May 2012.

Facilities[edit]

Rzeszów–Jasionka Airport, situated 7.8 km (4.8 mi) north of Rzeszów, features the second-longest runway in Poland: 3,200 m × 45 m (10,499 ft × 148 ft).
