Warsaw Modlin Airport rushes to completion

With the UEFA European soccer cup starting 8 June, Warsaw Modlin Airport (WMI) is rushing towards opening as a civilian enterprise.   The former military airport has been converted to a low cost operation with Ryanair and Wizz expected to be the first operators.  Located 35km north of the city centre it will have the benefit of a rail link, which the very modern main international airport, called Frederick Chopin (WAW), still awaits. 

The airport has a single 2,500m long runway, easily able to accommodate the 737s and A320s that the two airlines will use.  The big problem is whether it will be completed on time.  Many of the major infrastructure projects due to be completed in time for the soccer tournament have fallen behind schedule although the new national stadium, on a prominent site besides the Vistula River, is very much complete. www.modlinairport.pl
