Work Starts at Chopin Airport Terminal A

On September 13, the old part of Terminal A at Chopin Airport, Warsaw, became a construction site to transform it into a new facility, due to open by the end of 2014, when it will integrate with the new section.
The 20-year-old terminal was in poor condition, with a leaking roof and technical failures, and will be refurbished in order to increase its throughput in answer to growing traffic numbers at the airport.
Przemysław Przybylski, spokesperson for the airport, said:  “We want to provide Chopin Airport passengers with the highest quality of services.  After the refurbishment, the terminal will be more spacious and comfortable.”
The old terminal will be completely integrated with the new one, with more check-in desks, security checkpoints and baggage sorting equipment.  A new underground passage linking the arrivals hall with the airport railway station will be constructed.
Chopin Airport is the biggest airport in Poland, handling scheduled, charter, cargo and general aviation traffic.  In 2011, the airport welcomed more than 9.3 million passengers, equalling almost 43% of Poland’s total passenger traffic.
