Warsaw’s air passenger traffic accounts for 43% of the country’s total.
Meanwhile, the airport has continued to develop its aviation infrastructure and service. One of the airport’s two runways recently received a comprehensive upgrade, while the older (T1) terminal has taken over budget airline operations and merged with a new structure (T2) into ‘Terminal A’.
In addition, the central and south piers have been completed, increasing the total number of gates to 45. A rhythmic interplay of steel and glass defines the architecture of the new section, creating a relaxing sense of fluidity and movement.
Glass abounds in the check-in atrium, the gateway waiting areas and the 20 catering facilities, flooding the airport experience with natural light from start to finish, as even the boarding bridges are made of glass panels.
Style and comfort aside, attention has also been paid to energy efficiency and environmentally responsible features, including state-of-theart chillers that maintain optimal indoor air quality.
Already used to servicing an average of 30 000 passengers per day. a 15-minute rail link will connect the airport to the city centre.
