The airport in Modlin is undergoing expansion

INFRASTRUCTUREThe airport in Modlin is undergoing expansion

The new authorities of the Modlin airport have plans for expansion and necessary investments. The management board has obtained approval from the supervisory board and shareholders for a multi-year financial plan, which includes the expansion of the terminal and apron. Discussions are already underway about obtaining bank financing for the investment, and a tender for construction works is to be announced by mid-year. The investments are scheduled to begin in early 2025 and will last about 22 months. As a result, the terminal will be extended to the east and west, and the number of gates will increase to eight from the current four. The shareholders of the Modlin airport are the Masovian Voivodeship (36.17%), the Military Property Agency (31.56%), and Polish Airports (27.86%).

“This year we plan to serve over 3 million passengers. In the longer term, we plan to expand the Warsaw Modlin Airport. Over the last few years, unfortunately, this was blocked, but we have permission to expand the passenger terminal,” said Tomasz Szymczak, acting president of the board of the Masovian Airport Authority Warsaw Modlin, to eNewsroom.pl. “Currently, the Modlin terminal concept has movable departure gates—sometimes for passengers traveling within the Schengen area and other times outside the Schengen area. We would like to keep the existing four gates exclusively for Schengen zone operations. We are planning an expansion of border control and the terminal to include new commercial areas—both duty-free and catering. All additional, auxiliary functions—such as toilets, storage—will be moved to level minus one. Additionally, the terminal will be extended in both directions to include more Non-Schengen gates. Another investment worth mentioning is the construction in the first phase of 4 parking stands for code C aircraft—for example, 737s, which we handle, or alternately two code C and one larger stand for aircraft like the Dreamliner. These new investments will be carried out at optimal costs, and we would like to complete them within 20-22 months. We are in discussions with various carriers, including those from outside Europe. We have night availability. We are the only airport in central Poland that is open 24/7—i.e., there are no night restrictions. And we want to use this advantage. A larger terminal, more parking spots, and new carriers will allow us to significantly increase traffic at our airport,” points out Tomasz Szymczak.
