Green light for a central Polish airport has been given by Polish deputy prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki. The minister said that an airport project of this scale would not only increase capacity for local and European flights, but has the potential to become an international hub.
Morawiecki stated the government’s economic commission made the decision to recommend the construction of the airport, which is supposed to be located between the central city of Łódź and the capital Warsaw.
According to the Morawiecki, forecasts show that in 2030 as many as 50 Million passengers would arrive / depart at Polish airports. He also stated that the new airport could be ready in 2027 or 2028 at the latest.
Poland’s biggest airport in Warsaw was used by 12.6 Million passengers in 2016 but it is suggested that the airport would soon run out of capacity due to increasing number of passengers and lack of growth potential due its physical location.
