WAW | Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport

The construction of the second terminal at Okęcie airport has begun in May 2004. The new terminal will be much bigger, with 94,000 sq m of usable space. Construction will involve 22 airplane access corridors, 140,500 sq m of new aprons, and repair of nearly 80,000 sq m of existing aprons. New underground and ground level parking lots will be built-a total of 3,500 spaces, including 29 for long-distance buses.

The terminal will be a modern structure of glass and metal. Near to the terminal a railway station will connect the terminal with the center of Warsaw. The station's construction, together with the railway line and the purchase of rolling stock, will cost $300 million, while the total cost of the terminal will reach $200 million. The construction is being handled by a consortium made up of three companies: Budimex from Poland and Ferrovial Agroman and Estudio Lamela from Spain. The latter has contributed its own design for the terminal. The construction has begun with a delay, it is due to be completed in April 2006.

The new terminal will service 6.5 million passengers a year, and together with the already existing facilities-a total of 10 million. This will be the maximum capacity of the Frederic Chopin Airport. In the future another airport will need to be built for Warsaw.

It seems kinda silly to keep the T1 building after T2 is built... it looks large enough to handle that concourse of aircraft.

That's not like this. A single T1 is really tiny (prepared to handle 3.5 milion pax a year), but single T2 will be too small as well (prepared to handle 6.5 milion pax a year), while WAW had to handle over 6 milion pax in 2004 already. The passanger increase rate at WAW is over 20% per year:
April 2004 - April 2005
Group 3 Airport: Budapest (+30.7%), Warsaw (+23.9%), Cologne (+23.6%)
May 2004 - May 2005
Group 3 Airport: Budapest (+30.1%), Warsaw (+22.5%), Cologne (+18.6%)

Warsaw Airport - July 2005


Other updates from the official Warsaw Airport website:

Terminal 2 Construction Progress (22 July 2005)

Recently the works on the glazed façade of the passenger terminal have begun and the works on the terminal and piers roofing are going on. Inside the building the sanitary and electrical systems and the partitions inside the building are being installed.

The works on the aprons have been intensified. The preparation for change of the traffic system in front of Terminal 1 has commenced . This will enable the continuation of works connected with the new service and cargo tunnel and the flyover leading to the Terminal.

The photos display the demolition works of the north part of Terminal 1, necessary to connect the flyover leading to Terminal 2 with the existing road system in front of the passenger terminal.

Hmm..... so it sounds to me like they're going to out-grow this airport very soon.

Has Warsaw been shopping around for a new airport site?

By the way, this terminal is designed by the same architects that are building the new terminal at Madrid airport.
On their website at lamela.com you can discover how similar their ideas for both are. It seems, in fact, as though they rather downsized the Madrid terminal and slapped a different roof on it to create the Warsaw terminal.

The expansion looks very cool! It's nice to see an airport expand with rational expectations of the number of passengers it will handle in the future. So many airports around the world spend so much money on expansions that are insane. For instance, they now handle 10 million passengers a year, but with the ten new concourses they will be able to handle the 120 million a year they expect in 2035!!!

Seriously though, does LOT plan any expansions when the new terminal is built?

LOT will order soon new long haul planes and consider to open new US routes (either IAD or PHL) and return to Asia (DEL, PEK, BKK and maybe NRT/KIX). Perhaps other Star Alliance partners will fly to their hubs like SIN, INC or DEN/LAX. Wait and see...

I don't know but SQ has already an office in Warsaw and polish version of their web site. They fly from WAW (and other polish cities) in cooperation with LO and LH to SIN via AMS, FRA, CPH, FCO, CDG and ZRH. They offer also some destinations in Asia and Australia.
