Tender for Polish airport

17 July 2013

The Lech Walesa Airport in Gdansk, Poland, is planning to enlarge its second passenger terminal, and a tender has been called for the project, according to research and consulting company PMR.

The work will involve expanding the terminal’s arrival lounge, as well as the departure lounge for handling passengers for countries where an agreement has been made to abolish passports and immigration controls.

In addition, there are plans to build a connecting walkway, together with a small station for the Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway.

The deadline for applications to take part in the tender is 2 August, 2013.

The investor has not disclosed the sum it plans to allocate for the project, but it is understood that the choice of contractor will depend on the price, with the lowest bid winning.

The investment is scheduled to get under way in the autumn of 2013, and it is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2015.

The undertaking will increase the current area of terminal T2, completed in the spring of 2012, by approximately 30%.

Last year, Gdansk airport handled more than 2.9 million passengers. Following its expansion in 2012 – when, besides terminal T2, a taxiway, aircraft de-icing pads and a parking apron, among other things, were added – the airport can now handle 5 million passengers a year.
