- Poznań-Ławica airport has been confused by pilots with a nearby airbase, Poznań-Krzesiny Airbase, which also has a 2,500 m runway. The two runways are at approximately the same orientation: Ławica's is 11/29 and Krzesiny's is 12/30. The two runways lie in a nearly straight line, with Krzesiny coming up first on approaches from the East, the ones used most often. On the other hand, the Krzesiny airbase has two runways, and lies southeast from the city centre, while Poznań-Ławica lies just west of it.
