The figure marks a 17.7-percent uptick from the previous year, which saw 36 million passengers, and a major rise since 2010, when air traffic reached 20 million passengers.

In 2017, many of Poland's airports recorded a two-digit increase in the number of passengers. Meanwhile, the Szymany airport in the northeast of the country reported 122-percent growth and serviced 105,000 people in total.

Warsaw’s International Chopin Airport handled over 15.75 million passengers last year, a 22.7-percent hike and an all-time high for the air hub.

Traffic data is yet to be released by the airports in Łódź and Rzeszów, which could further increase the passenger total for Poland in 2017, the fly4free website reported.
