At the end of May this year on the website of the Warsaw-Modlin airport there was information that construction works related to the reconstruction and raising the bearing capacity of the DK-A2 taxiway at the airport have begun. For this purpose, the Modlin-based company concluded an agreement with Batarus, which – as it was assured – specializes in the construction, repair and maintenance of concrete surfaces.

“The taxiway in question is located in the immediate vicinity of the passenger terminal and parking spaces for aircraft, and therefore it is the most frequently used, most heavily loaded part of the ground movement area” – it was emphasized.

Warsaw-Modlin Airport is at the forefront of the largest airports in Poland. In 2022, the airport near Warsaw served over 3.1 million passengers in regular and charter traffic, according to the latest available data from the Civil Aviation Office. Warsaw-Modlin Airport was ranked 5th in terms of the number of passengers served.

The second place was taken by the Kraków-Balice Airport – 7.4 million passengers. On the lowest step of the podium was the port in Gdańsk, which served 4.6 million passengers. The fourth place was taken by the Katowice-Pyrzowice airport – over 4.4 million passengers.
