There are a number of economic factors behind the construction of Poland’s new Solidarity Airport, not least the growth of air transport in Poland.

Warsaw Chopin Airport – until now the largest airport in the country – has become too small to meet current and future demands, and the potential for expansion is severely limited by its proximity to the Polish capital’s urban infrastructure.

According to the latest IATA forecasts, air travel in Poland will return to its pre-pandemic levels in 2024. In 2019, Warsaw Chopin Airport served nearly 19 million passengers – the airport’s maximum capacity is approximately 22 million passengers per year.

Taking into account the current post-pandemic traffic recovery, the airport is expected to reach its absolute limits by 2025–2027.

According to IATA forecasts, the new Solidarity Airport will serve approximately 30 million passengers in the first full year of operations, and 40 million annually by 2035.
