Services from London and the Dutch city of Eindhoven had both touched down before 11 am on Monday morning.

Meanwhile, services to Bergamo, Brussels and London were among those scheduled for today.

Ryanair had been compelled to transfer its services to Warsaw's Chopin International Airport at the close of 2012, after problems emerged at the new airport in Modlin.

Repairs had to made to the runway, and a report by the Polish Air Force's Institute of Technology concluded that incorrect substances had been used in the concrete mix, while preparing the runway, thus leading to cracks.

Wizz Air, which had also transferred its services to Chopin International Airport, confirmed in July that it would not be returning to Modlin.

Meanwhile, Ryanair announced on Friday that as of March 2014 there will be daily internal flights linking Modlin with Gdansk and Wroclaw. (nh)
