EPSY Olsztyn-Mazury is an international passenger airport
in the North-East of Poland. It is located near the village
Szymany, some 10 km from the centre of the city of Szczytno in
the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship. The airport was earlier known
as Szczytno-Szymany Airport.
EPSY Olsztyn-Mazury Airport is popular among general aviation
pilots as a gateway to the Masurian Lake District. The region
contains more than 2,000 lakes. The Lakeland extends roughly 290
km (180 mi) eastwards from the lower Vistula to the
Poland–Russia border, and occupies an area of roughly 52,000
square kilometres (20,000 sq mi). The lakes are well connected
by rivers and canals, forming an extensive system of waterways.
The 18th-century Masurian Canal links this system to the Baltic
Sea. The whole area is a prime tourist destination, frequented
by boating enthusiasts, canoeists, anglers, hikers, bikers and
nature-lovers. It is one of the most famous lake districts in
Central Europe and a popular vacation spot, with the highest
number of visitors every year. Śniardwy is the largest lake
being 22.1 km (13.7 mi) long and 13.4 km (8.3 mi) wide.
The airfield in Szymany originates from 1933. Back then it was
located in Germany, just kilometers away from the Polish border.
Being hidden, within the woods, the airfield should be used as
temporary facility during the war. So it did 1939 during the
invasion in Poland. In 1945, the small airfield was in the hands
of the Soviet army. As they were not interested in the facility,
they left it in autumn 1945. Now located in Poland, the Polish
army acquired it. In the 1950s and 1960s it was expanded and
assigned as backup airport. It was developed on a low stage for
many years, in the second half of the 1970s it received a
control tower and further buildings. In the 1990s, when the cold
war had ended, the airfield in Szymany lost its importance and
was finally left. The remains of the old runway are still
visible on the East side of the airport.
Later on, the Szymany Airport received international attention
after it was discovered the airfield was used by the CIA in
conjunction with a black site prison nearby in 2003.
From 2014 to 2015, the airport was rebuilt with high EU
subsidies. Its runway was extended and overhauled; a new
terminal, railway link and further facilities were erected. On
20 January 2016, the first ever scheduled passenger flight took
off from the airport with a SprintAir service to Berlin.
