Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – Airport in Świdnik may receive state subsidies up to EUR 296m. This is a chance to make use of EUR 49m allocated for the company this year.

Today, Rzeszow is the only airport in eastern Poland. In the future, an airport in Szymany (Mazury region) and Lublin (Swidnik) may launch operations. The latter has just received EU approval to receive state subsidy of up to EUR 296m.

“This decision lets us continue the plan of buying land. We spent PLN14m (EUR 4.1m) last year. This year, there were EUR 49m provided for this purpose. We needed approval from Brussels to launch these funds”, Piotr Jankowski from Lublin airport said.

The company needs 240ha of land. Half of this amount are lots owned by private owners, and half – by the state.

“We have already signed 20 percent of all agreements. We want to conclude the process this year. Next year, we will launch investments. The first passengers would be received in 2011”, Piotr Jankowski added.

The investment is evaluated at PLN 290m. This amount covers cost of buying lots, building the take-off runway, terminal and infrastructure. The airport may have 500,000 passengers annually. As many as 15 airlines are interested in launching flights to Lublin, Piotr Jankowski said.
