– If we want Kraków and Małopolska to attract new investors and hold important cultural, religious, scientific or sport events, we cannot afford to stagnate; we have to constantly develop the airport – says Radosław Włoszek, President of the management board of Kraków Airport.
In 2017, there will take place reconstruction of the oldest (south-western) section of the apron at Kraków Airport. In the current year, Kraków Airport is planning to build a connector between the hotel and the footbridge, allowing the guests of Hilton Garden Inn to easily walk to the terminal without the need to walk outside. The most important investment task that Krakow Airport is facing is the construction of a new runway. This is the key element of the investment plan until 2023 adopted last year by the Meeting of Shareholders. The airport began the implementation of the investment with a dialogue with the local community. Aviation Education Centre – a program aimed for children and teenagers planned for launch in the first half of the year. The classes will be suited to age groups and will include trips, workshops, and children theatre. Aviation Education Centre will be located in the previous Terminal T2, which will be equipped and adapted for this purpose by way of a public tender organized by Kraków Airport.
