Poland’s football team may not have progressed as much as they would have liked in Euro 2012 but in terms of airport efficiency, the country certainly put in a winning performance over the two weeks.Mark Glover from International Airport Review spoke to Rafal Marczewski, Poland’s National Co-ordinator for Airports before the tournament regarding the plans for the country’s airport infrastructure throughout the two weeks (International Airport Review Issue 2 2012). In this issue, Mark catches up with Rafal again to see how he felt the airport operations had gone.Mark Glover: First of all, how are you feeling? Are you fully recovered from the experience?Rafal Marczewski: Yes, just about! The whole experience was excellent. As a football fan, I felt the whole tournament was a complete success with some excellent football being played with plenty of goals. I remember when we spoke before that I tipped Germany to go all the way but they just fell short – although the eventual winners, Spain, were worthy champions! Of course, the weather was also very good most of the time.
