Ignacy Jan Paderewski International Airport in Bydgoszcz (BZG)
Travelers to Torun via the international airport in Bydgoszcz can choose public transport in the form of Bydgoszcz city buses and national railroads. To use this option when leaving the BZG airport, take city bus No. 80, which stops in front of the airport building and heads to Bydgoszcz Central Railway Station (Dworzec Główny) – the last stop. From there, a train leaves every 30 minutes or so in the direction of Toruń (Main Railway Station – Dworzec Główny). The journey by train takes up to 45 minutes. The same city bus also takes you to the Bydgoszcz Bus Station.

Another convenient destination for air travelers is Gdańsk Airport, 150 km from Torun. It is the third largest airport in Poland in terms of the number of passengers served. There are several options for transportation from there to Toruń. One of them is, of course, public transportation. Not far from the terminal building you can find a stop of the Gdansk public transport, from which bus No. 210 departs towards the city center and the main railway and bus stations, and N3 line at night. An even simpler solution is to choose a train connection (the Rapid Urban Rail station in Gdansk is located next to the terminal building). Through it, you can easily get to Toruń – usually with a change at the Gdańsk Główny or Gdańsk Wrzeszcz train stations. Unfortunately, there is currently no direct rail connection between Gdansk Airport and Toruń.
