In addition to the above, Warsaw Airport will gain direct routes to Seoul and Bangkok operated by LOT in 2016. Further announcements will follow this fall. Rumors indicate the following options:

Shanghai, Singapore, Washington, LA, Montreal.

The carrier plans to double its size (fleet/route network/annual pax) by 2020. This will have a positive effect on Warsaw Chopin Airport.

Hopefully soon we will 15 million annual pax.

PS: Following the recent redevelopment of the old terminal, the airport authority is preparing to further extend the terminal piers (north and south) allowing for additional wide-body, non-schengen stands/gates.

No renders available yet.

I wonder which airlines have moved back to Sectors A and B from Sectors C, D and E. I know that SkyTeam carriers, LCCs and charter airlines had check-in ops here, though I wonder if they're now too comfortable with C, D and E to contemplate moving back to A and B.

And so, WAW starts to become an important network hub, one of the most crucial steps for Poland to become a fully advanced economy. That point can be reached when passengers from all over Europe are directed via Warsaw to fly to e.g Asia, instead of via the traditional West-European hubs. Incheon, Tokyo and LAX are important, but even more is the deeper penetration of LOT into the intra-European market (looking at your post at 322). Good job

Absolutely correct. If I may add the greatest problem is that LOT lacks B737s in their fleet. E170s/175s are too small and the plan is to get rid of them and use a 737 fleet starting next year. This will allow the carrier to better 'feed' it's long haul routes.

In addition, if LOT wants to become a serious player in the game Warsaw will need a new airport in the next 10 years. WAW has a capacity of 20 mln and this year 13 mln will be handled. WAW does not have the ability to expand anymore due to its proximity to the downtown core however, the most significant problem in WAW is the runway layout. Two crossing runways and no possibility of changing this to a two parallel layout.

Here is another route being looked at Fresh news from yesterday and very relevant in regards to your statement

Direct connection with a least one of australian airport would be also needed.

What about building out Modlin? It has both rail and road connection with city center and enough space to build out the airport to as many runways as you like. Also no nimbys and expensive expropriations.

Expanding Modlin would make sense. 40km via S7 to Warsaw and ample room for expansion. Currently, Ryanair is the only airline in Modlin, more carriers would make Modlin less dependent on Ryanair. Turkish Airlines also uses both Istanbul airports as hubs, LOT could turn WAW into a hub for Europe and Modlin into a hub for transcontinental flights.

How does this make sense? LOT 'feeds' it's long haul flights with domestic and European flights. For example, a morning wave of flights arrive from Budapest, Prague, Kiev, Bucharest, Sofia, Vilnius, Riga, Lwow etc and the passengers transfer to Seoul, New York, Beijing, Toronto etc. within an hour or two.

How would this work with two airports separated by 50 km or so? It would not.

In my opinion the best option would be to build a new airport somewhere between Lodz and Warsaw where major highways and railways intersect. In addition to this a railway station would be a smart idea which would allow trains to stop and drop off passengers from around Poland. For example a train from Poznan to Warsaw would stop here and drop off passengers who live lets say 100 kms east of Poznan.

I am not saying that this is realistic in the next 5 years. It is not, but let's look 10-15 years into the future when Chopin Airport will reach it's maximum capacity. Warsaw does not need 3 airports, Chopin Airport would be closed (in 10-15 years) and the new airport would replace it's role. Modlin would remain as a low cost airport.

Unless the above concept with a parallel runway is realistic, in which case building a new airport does not make sense. Chopin Airport with two parallel runways and additional terminal infrastructure (and a transit railway station if that is at all possible) would allow LOT to realize it's strategy and would allow WAW to increase it's capacity from 18-20 mlm today to I would guess close to 40-50 mln in the future.

The only drawback to this project would be WAWs proximity to the city centre (operational restrictions) as well as night curfew due to noise restrictions at night.

hello and sawasdee warsaw poland

Thai AirAsia X is now considering the launch of services to Eastern Europe in 2017, resulting in an even more balanced hub for AirAsia at Bangkok Don Mueang. Mr Tassapon told CAPA that Budapest, Prague and Warsaw are under consideration.

http://centreforaviation.com/analysi...ntinues-313014
http://pantip.com/topic/35809829

Thai AirAsia X mulls longhaul debut in 2017

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Thai AirAsia (FD, Bangkok Don Mueang), Tassapon Bijleveld, says the LCC's longhaul sister, Thai AirAsia X (XJ, Bangkok Don Mueang), is drawing up plans for a possible longhaul debut in Europe as early as next year.

In an interview with CAPA, Tassapon said the longhaul budget operator was currently looking at starting flights to Budapest, Prague, and Warsaw Chopin. Central and Eastern Europe, while important source markets for Thailand, are relatively underserved with the majority of travelers forced to transit via hubs in Western Europe, the Middle East or Russia.

Currently, Thai AirAsia X's operations are limited to China, Oman, Japan, South Korea, and Iran which it serves using six A330-300s. For its part, AirAsia X (D7, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) has alluded to the launch of longhaul flights to Europe at some point in 2017.

The number of Chopin Airport passengers increased in November by a third.

1.02 million people had been handled at Chopin Airport in Warsaw in November. That's 31.5 percent more than last year.

In total, from January to November Warsaw Chopin Airport has handled 11.8 million people, 13 percent more than in the corresponding period of 2015.

For the first time in its history Warsaw Chopin Airport handled 12 million passengers. And this is still not the end of a record year.

The 12-millionth passenger handled at the beginning of December is another historical record of the Warsaw airport, but surely not the last.

- The traffic at Chopin Airport is growing very rapidly, and we expect that the result for 2016 will close above the 12.5 million passengers handled. Next year there will be even more - up to 14 million - says Mariusz Szpikowski, director of Chopin Airport.

Summary of the year

https://www.lotnisko-chopina.pl/en/n...szczegoly.html

Quote:
2016 was a record year for Warsaw Chopin Airport

More than 12.8 million passengers were handled at Chopin Airport throughout 2016. This is an absolute historical record of the airport. The number of cities with a direct connection with Warsaw was also a record one.

The record year was closed with a record December, during which Chopin Airport handled 980 thousand people. That's by 35.4 percent more than in December 2015. (724 thousand). It is the 27th consecutive month of growth in the number of passengers and the 20th monthly record since October 2014.

The entire 2016 was the best in the 82-year history of the Warsaw airport. In the period from January to December it has served 12 million 836.5 thousand. people, an increase of 14.5 percent compared to the full year 2015.

In domestic traffic 1 million 422 thousand people have traveled - 20.9 percent more than the year before (the record of 2012, when the airport handled over 1.5 million people in domestic traffic, was not beaten however). In international traffic the number of passengers has reached the number of 11 million 414 thousand, an increase of 13.8 percent.

I am hoping for 14 MLN in 2017

Very realistic with LOTs expansion.
