Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) - In first quarter the passenger traffic rose at polish airports by 34 percent. Regional airports develop much faster than Warsaw.

In the course of three first months in 2006, polish airports serviced more than 2.7m passengers. The biggest increase was in Warsaw. There were 210 thousand passengers more than last year. In Krakow it was 128 thousand people more, in Gdańsk 85 thousand more, in Wrocław – 63 thousand.   

In IQ of 2005 Okęcie, main polish airport, had 68 percent of polish traffic, at the end of 2005 it was 61 percent, in IQ of 2006 - only 56 percent.

“According to our analyses, about 2020 regional airports will service more passengers than the central airport at Okęcie” Adam Borkowski, spokesmen of polish Authority of Civil Aviation said.

Boom in regional airports comes mainly from activity of low-cost carriers, that are still opening new routes and carry people that look for their job outside Poland. Ryanair last year in March had only one route to Poland (to Wrocław). At the moment it is operating 19 routes and plans to open next seven. And the carrier does not operate to Warsaw at all.

“In 2030 the number of passengers could exceed 63m people”, Adam Borkowski said.
