I'm sure it's working, but I don't know how often buses go (surely not as frequent as on a normal day, maybe once an hour).

From MPK Poznań's website (unfortunatelly no timetable for Christmas yet, if you speak some Polish, you could ask at Rondo Kaponiera, a departure point for many bus lines).

Bus lines to £awica Airport (daytime):
H (bus stops at most hotels)
L (a relatively quick line with few stops)
48, 59 (regular lines, not recommended during rush hours, but on 25th December it should be OK).

Taxis work always, just less than normally, so it would be wise to book one a few hours earlier (or even a day earlier).

I have today checked the PKP website (I have to get in Rabka, or at least Chabówka) on the 24th afternoon or 25th in the morning... The IC trains are going according their normal schedule, so that will save my life....

Hey, I am off to Rabka on the 24th as well for Christmas! I am getting a lift with my mate though I think.

I need to visit Lawica in order to get a flight in the evening. Normally the reason why someone would go to an airport.

Waa, there's flights on Christmas Day?

This country confuses me...I'm used to everything shutting down, but IC trains running normally, flights from small provincial airports and (what looks like) a Sunday service on public transport?

I need to lie down :(
