  • Runway preferred Departure preffered runways are as follows: 25, 07.
    ATC Clearance

    All flights shall leave TMA Warszawa via one of the following fixes:


    SID name shall not be put in the flight plan.

    All SIDs at Lodz are RNP-1. In order to execute them, your aircraft has to be capable of area navigation (e.g. FMC, GPS, INS). If you are unable to perform it, or you are not sure about it, inform ATC before obtaining IFR clearance.

    EPLL_DEL is the clearance delivery station for Lodz Airport. To get your IFR clearance, contact Lodz Delivery not more than 30 minutes before Off Block Time only with your callsign and destination. Your clearance will contain: runway, assigned SID or other departure instructions, the initial climb, your squawk code and current weather information.

    Please remember that currently we do not serve DCL/PDC clearance. 

    Taxi Procedures

    Deicing is performed at STD 12.

    Low Visibility Procedures (LVP) When RVR is less than 550 m and/or cloud ceiling is less than 200 ft Low Visibility Procedures are in operation.
    During LVP for departure and landing only runway 25 should be used.
    After landing runway should be vacated via taxiway B.
    Minimum RVR for departure is 400 m. Minimum RVR for arrival is 300 m.

    At Lodz Airport there are no stands with jetway. On STD 1-14 pushback is not required.

    Start-up, pushback and taxi

    There is no pushback required at any stand.

    Start-up and pushback

    Szczecin Tower is responsible for all start-up, pushback and taxi.


    Before requesting taxi prepare taxi charts for the aerodrome. This is very helpful for both pilots and controllers. 

    When RWY 07 is in use, be prepared to perform backtrack.

    Take-off and departure

    Prior to your departure, you should double check your FMC and the transponder: make sure you have the correct SID, your squawk code set and the transponder operating in Mode C. Be ready for departure upon reaching the holding point. In order to keep runway occupancy to a minimum, expect to receive an immediate takeoff clearance. ATC will assume every aircraft at the holding point is able to commence line up and take-off roll after clearance issued with no delay. If you are unable to comply with it, inform Lodz Tower before being number 1 in departure sequence.

    It is very important to strictly adhere to your SID and initial climb until given further instructions! When contacting the new controller, you should listen for other traffic talking on frequency to not interrupt them.

  • Preferred runways Arrival preffered runways are as follows: 25, 07.
    Arrival procedures

    Entry to TMA Warszawa shall be planned via one of the following entry fixes:


    Expect being assigned the correct STAR.

    As with SIDs, RNAV equipment is required. If you are unable to follow the procedure, put it in your flight plan and inform the ACC controller on initial contact. You may expect being given a shortcut to LOZ VOR and then perform instrument approach procedure.

    The STARs only define the horizontal flight profile. Every level change (descent) has to be explicitly instructed by the ATC.

    After being issued the approach clearance, the STAR shall be continued until established on final.

    When traffic load permits, you may expect a shortcut to one of the points of the procedure.


    TMA Lodz is a procedural airspace, which means that controller doesn't have a radar and won't be able to see you. To provide ATC service, pilots will be asked for position reports. This report should contain current altitude and distance to next waypoint. You can also provide information about your indicated airspeed (IAS).

    Final approach



    RWY 07: RNP, VOR

    During final approach it is advised to maintain speed of 160 kts or greater (if possible) until 4 NM DME. ATC may impose other speed restrictions.

    Runways 07 and 25 are not equipped with rapid-exit taxiways. When RWY 25 is in use, be prepared to perform backtrack.

    Make sure to fully vacate the runway (cross the holding point) but hold short of the next taxiway in front of you. Remain on Tower frequency until further advised.

  • Procedures

    VFR flights in CTR LODZ are required to have a flight plan. Flights shall take place according to the published VFR routes. Shortcuts, other than published, are not permitted.

    Constant (cruising) altitude and pattern altitude for VFR flights in CTR EPLL is 1500 ft. Flights shall not take place below that altitude. Flight above that altitude require coordination with TWR.

    Descent below 2000 ft is permitted only in close vicinity of the airport, during published holding procedures over VFR reporting points, approaches and runway operations.

    During high traffic load, aircraft in VFR flight may be instructed to hold as published over the following points:

    Point YANKEE – Arrival from LIMA.

    Point SIERRA – arrival from ROMEO or KILO.

    CTR LODZ is class D airspace.
