Economy Promo fares include a carry-on bag, a personal item, and one free checked bag up to 50lbs/23kg.

Seat Assignments

Seats will be assigned at random upon check-in for these prices. You may pay a fee to choose a specific seat.

Alternate Fares

Economy Standard fares are usually a few hundred dollars more and allow ticket changes and refunds for a fee. The price difference can be quite a bit compared to Economy Promo fares, but it is something to consider since Economy Promo fares do not allow any ticket changes.

Other major airlines like SAS, Lufthansa, KLM, and British Airways may be matching with similar or lower fares in certain markets. Make sure to compare the total cost, schedule, and comfort level with other carrier's Basic Economy products, which don't include checked bags.


Depending on your final destination, some layovers might be extended or overnight. But don't take that as a hindrance, use it to explore Warsaw along the way — making a 2-for-1 deal. For most city-to-city pairs, quick connections are available.
