Passenger Terminal Today - Elizabeth Baker
The Polish government will build a new greenfield airport, the Solidarity Transport Hub (STH), in 2027 to increase the security of Poland.
The hub airport will have an annual capacity of 40 million passengers in the first phase. The STH company, which has been set up to carry out this investment, has been consulting with the military on the assumed investment’s parameters since 2019. Although Solidarity Airport is a civil project, it can also be used for transferring military units (especially rapid reaction forces), equipment, goods and humanitarian aid. In military terminology, this mechanism is called ‘dual use’. Dual-purpose infrastructure may be used by NATO forces whenever necessary.
