Poznań. These connecting flights operated until 1933.

numerous developments, unfortunately the LOT Polish Airlines
connecting flights were not reactivated until 1948, and operated
from Bydgoszcz until 1981, with a break of over 10 years in the
1960s. The connecting flights to Poznań and Gdańsk yet were
suspended. The longest remaining connection was Bydgoszcz to Warsaw.
