From 1 April 2019 Kraków Airport will be continuing its cooperation with Happy Healthy. Thanks to this partnership passengers will be offered short cardiorespiratory exercise sessions preparing them for flights. The exercises will be offered to passengers on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays between 10 AM and 1 PM as well as occasionally on Saturdays.
This coincides with the Physical Activity Day which falls on 6 April 2019. In order to celebrate it properly, Krakow Airport will organise longer (6 h) sessions with three instructors. These personal trainers will encourage our passengers to take up physical activity. In some areas of the terminal, our guests will find floor stickers informing them of how many calories they’ll burn if they choose stairs instead of an escalator.
