Artur Tomasik, Chairman of the board of the Upper Silesian Aviation Group, speaks to International Airport Review about the newly reconstructed and expanded passenger Terminal B at Katowice Airport, which opened in August this year and which will improve the passenger experience for those passengers travelling to Schengen Area countries.
During November 2021, Katowice Airport’s passenger traffic significantly increased by 580.0 per cent in comparison to results from the same month in 2020, which were heavily impacted by COVID-19.
Katowice Airport is the biggest regional cargo airport in Poland, and forecasts 2021 to be record-breaking when it comes to its amount of handled freight.
Katowice Airport, according to its July 2021 summary, reports a growth in cargo freight transported to and from the airport, showing an increase from its 2020 results impacted by COVID-19.
As of August 2021, the new and reconstructed Terminal B at Katowice Airport will welcome returning travelling passengers after the long-anticipated lift of COVID-19 travel restrictions.
