On May 28th, a symbolic ceremony was held at the Poznań - Ławica Airport to open the new passenger terminal. The contract for expansion of the airport was performed by HOCHTIEF Polska Branch in Poznań.
The investment is being carried out under a turnkey system consisting of three stages. The first stage of the works covered the construction of a new part for the terminal with a floor area of more than 17 800 square meters. The check-in hall and new arrivals zone (on the ground floor) as well as technical facilities for the whole building (on the underground storey) are housed in this building. The construction works of the 1st stage of the expansion of the airport finished on March 30, 2012. Finishing works for the office area in the newly-built part of the airport terminal (on the first and second story) will be completed in the second stage.
At present, there are being conducted works within land management as well as construction of roads and car parks around the new part of the terminal to provide efficient service for travelers at EURO 2012.
The third stage includes among others alteration of the existing part of the passenger terminal and the construction of a new central area for security control.

The scope of work includes the construction of an internal road and the redevelopment of a car park. Project construction works began in the spring of 2011 and are scheduled to be completed in the middle of 2013. The final stage of the works will result in the transformation of the current building, which has been operating since 2001, into a departure hall with a commercial area.
