Following the analysis, by engineering consultancy firm Arup, the state-run Polish Airports company, which administers Warsaw's primary Chopin Airport, decided to focus on Radom Airport some 110 km south of the Polish capital, as a complementary airport.
In the case of Radom Airport, the first expansion stage would take 20 months and involve the construction of a 2,500-metre runway, in a project that would increase the airport's capacity to 3 million passengers annually at a cost of PLN 425 million.
In the second stage, the airport's capacity would be increased to 7 million to 9 million passengers annually and the runway would be extended to 2,800 metres. This would cost an additional PLN 467 million (EUR 111 million), according to Arup.
Klaudiusz Madeja visited the airport under construction in Radom and spoke to the Chief Financial Officer of the Polish Airports State Enterprise (PPL), Stefan Świątkowski.
