In a groundbreaking development poised to revolutionize the travel experience in Pyrzowice, the Upper Silesian Aviation Group (Górnośląskie Towarzystwo Lotnicze GTL SA – ed.) unveiled an ambitious investment plan on Monday, February 5th, which is set to reshape the airport landscape by 2028. At the heart of this transformative project is the construction of a new main passenger terminal, signaling a new era of convenience and efficiency for travelers in Poland.
Pyrzowice Airport is on the cusp of a major overhaul. The investment program, spanning from 2024 to 2028, ambitiously targets an expansion across all airport zones, encompassing passenger, aircraft technical service, and cargo areas. A significant highlight of this initiative includes the development of a logistics hub for goods and fuel, leveraging a railway siding to enhance operational efficiency.
The passenger zone expansion is being spearheaded in collaboration with Arup, a global powerhouse in engineering and consulting, boasting 18,000 professionals across 90 offices worldwide. This partnership promises a blend of innovation and expertise in reshaping the airport’s infrastructure.
The blueprint for the new main passenger terminal reveals a two-level structure designed for optimal flow and convenience. The ground level will house the ticketing and baggage check-in areas along with the arrivals hall. The first level is set to feature a central security checkpoint, passport control, and the departures hall, streamlining the process from check-in to boarding.
In a move that underscores the project’s commitment to seamless travel, the new terminal will be connected via a roughly 270-meter tunnel to the “Pyrzowice Airport” train station. This strategic linkage not only facilitates easy access to rail transportation but also integrates a transfer center for public buses, coaches, and shuttles between the main terminal and the train station. This holistic approach to transportation connectivity positions Pyrzowice Airport as a future hub of mobility in the region.
