The list shows 164 flights of former prime minister Beata Szydło. The first one dates back to 29-30 November, 2015; the last one was taken on December 10, 2017.

She took 73 of the said flights on a military CASA plane, 16 on a W-3 Sokół helicopter, 1 was a charter flight to Ulaanbaatar, and the rest on an Embraer.

Beata Szydło was Poland's prime minister from the 16th of November, 2015, until the 11th of December, 2017, on which day she became the deputy PM, until the 4th of June, 2019, after she won a seat in the European Parliament.

Szydło's request to publish full information about her flights came after the media and opposition MPs revealed that the now former Marshal of the Sejm Marek Kuchciński has been allowing members of his family on board during official flights.

On Friday (August 9), Marek Kuchciński officially resigned as the Marshal of the Sejm and was replaced by Elżbieta Witek, the now former minister of the interior.
