Łódź Władysław Reymont Airport (IATA: LCJ, ICAO: EPLL), formerly known as Łódź-Lublinek Airport, is a regional airport in central Poland, located approximately 6 km (3.7 m) southwest of the Łódź city center. It has recently been named after the celebrated 20th century Polish writer and the winner of the 1924 Nobel Prize in Literature, Władysław Reymont.
The airport has been in operation since 1925 and has recently undergone a number of upgrades enabling it to handle services by low cost airlines to destinations in Europe. Currently a multi-storey Terminal III is under construction to increase the passenger throughput to 1 million passengers per year.
Despite Łódź being Poland's third largest city, it has one of the smallest international airports in the country, with the approximate throughput of nearly 400 000 passengers per year. Gdańsk, Poznań, Rzeszów and Wrocław are all examples which have larger airports, but smaller cities. Łódź is mainly served by Ryanair. Regular connections from EPLL include Dortmund, Dublin, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Liverpool, London Milan and Stockholm. Chartered flights offer destinations in Tunisia, Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Israel and Italy.
The aerodrome offers one asphalt concrete runway (2500 x 45 m), and 12 aircraft stands for aircraft categories A, B and C. Runway 25 can be approached via Cat. 1 ILS/DME or LLZ.
The airport has no approach radar, procedural published approaches are in use and procedural control is provided.
