Traditionally, the seasonal Iberia Express route to Madrid is back in the summer flight network. The carrier is a member of IAG (International Airlines Group) and one of the three world’s largest airline alliances – oneworld. Iberia Express connections are fully integrated
with Iberia’s flight schedule, so that the passengers can travel fast and conveniently to Spain, as well as South, Latin, and North America.
100 YEARS OF POLISH AVIATION AT THE AVIATION EDUCATION CENTRE
In June, the Kraków Airport Aviation Education Centre celebrated 100 years of Polish Aviation. Eight teams of kids from local primary schools took part in an outdoor game using a special mobile app. The airport services staff helped prepare entertainment for the spectators, too. Starting from July, the summer offer of the Aviation Education Centre also includes “aviation camps”. They are aviation workshops dedicated for primary school students up to the age of 10, and children aged 11–16. Single or 5-days workshops are available for purchase.

THE 12TH EDITION OF THE NEED HELP PROGRAMME HAS BEGUN
The registration to the 12th edition of the Need Help? programme closed in June. The main task of the participants – wearing special yellow t-shirts – is to help the passengers in and around the terminal. 34 students have already started training in order to learn about the airport and passenger service. Soon, under the supervision of experienced airport staff, they will be helping the passengers during their stay at Kraków Airport. Some of the students will use their new knowledge e.g. in their graduation projects.
NEW SERVICES IN THE TERMINAL
The passenger terminal now features a florist, and soon a pharmacy and a toy shop will be opened. In addition, passengers will also have a chance to stop by at a new café.
