Journeys from central Warsaw in Poland on the new railway to Chopin Airport take around 25 minutes. Work began in 2006 on repairing an 8km section of existing line between Warszawa Zachodnia and Warszawa Okęcie and the provision of two new stations to serve adjacent new housing estates.
A new 2km double track was constructed from Warszawa Służewiec to an underground station at the airport. Of this, about 1.2km is below ground. The project was partly financed by the European Union. During the work, the remains of a 19th century Russian fort were uncovered. An unusual problem was soil contaminated with diesel fuel, which had to be stabilised.
During the morning and afternoon rush hours, trains from the airport to the city centre run every 10-12 minutes and outside rush ours every 15 minutes.
