Transportation to the Conference

If you are flying to Poland, we recommend that you fly to Warsaw Chopin Airport. This airport is approximately 2 kilometers away from the Hotel. However, tickets to Warsaw Modlin Airport are sometimes cheaper, but this airport is approximately 40 kilometers away from the hotel.

Shuttles to/from Chopin Airport
Transportation from Chopin Airport will be free. We can only arrange a shuttle for you from Chopin Airport to the hotel, and from the Hotel back to Chopin Airport on Sunday. If you are arriving earlier than Wednesday 1 May or leaving later than Sunday 5 May shuttles are not available. You will have to arrange your own transportation to the airport you are flying from. Please let us know on the registration form if you will need a shuttle to and/or from Chopin Airport, along with your flight information. If you do not yet have your flight information, please send this to conference@teenchallenge.eu as soon as possible. 

Transportation to/from Modlin Airport
We cannot arrange transportation to or from Modlin Airport. If you choose to fly to Modlin Airport, you must arrainge your own transportation. 

To do so you need to arrange a cab ride from Modlin to the hotel. This costs between € 30 and € 45 per trip. (Not per person, you can ride with several people per car). Cab rides can be reserved using the Bolt app, which you can download for apple or android.
