GPS: 51°50’10.1″N 16°31’56.6″E (51.836132, 16.532380)
Due to the traffic constraints (the Szybowników street, between the city center and the airfield, is undergoing modernization works), you can reach the event grounds from two directions:
- from the South – Leszno Zachód exit (if you’re coming via expressway S5 from Wrocław/Poznan): ul. Szybowników (DK 12), then take the left turn behind the Lotos gas station into ul. Kosmonautów, and then drive directly to the event entrance gate.
- from the North / Święciechowa / Leszno city: follow ul. Leszczyńska, and then ul. Kosmonautów, and then, direct to the gate.
You can quickly and easily reach Leszno by taking a train. The train station is located around 3 kilometers from the airfield. You can come to the event by bus (schedule here), or by taking a taxi (the cost is around PLN 25).
The best, and the most healthy route there is. The bicycle parking area, where you can use your U-lock to secure the bikes, would be arranged in front of the entrance. You can also enter the showground with your bike on you.
We will do everything in our power to make the Antidotum Airshow in Leszno the best, and safest aviation event of 2021. One should take into account the danger posed by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
