Poland's Super Hub Airport

Warsaw is planning a new airport, and not just any airport.
Warsaw Solidarity Airport will not start operating flights until 2027 and will require an investment of $10bn to make it a reality.
Take a look at the plans, and why Poland needs such a big superhub airport.
This is what Poland has needed for a long time to improve its economy.
Cargo Pants is going to love it.

Superiority complex ?

Well it will be far superior to anything the rest of the E.U. has.

No way are they going to build a big hub like Frankfurt (10 minutes on the bus from the plane to one of the terminals) or Munich (similar)

Now I don't think you are Polish , but a German like Tacticus.

CPK is not just an airport but a high speed rail network throughtout Poland.

The geopolitical situation is changing. Just as the current war is not decided by tanks but by drones, other plans change as well. For example, it is already known that the Chinese silk route, which was supposed to lead by land to Poland due to the war in Ukraine, is not functioning, moreover, Europe wants to become a little independent of China. Airplanes play an insignificant role in the international transport of goods. So the ships remain and for them there is no need for the CPK. If they build it, it's good, but in Poland and in Germany there are already a lot of small airports that are financially unprofitable.

There will always be a need for time sensitive freight to be shipped by air. You know how many tons of fresh salmon Norway flies to the USA every day?

but in Poland and in Germany there are already a lot of small airports that are financially unprofitable.

And if people can reach CPK in an hour on high speed rail, then the case for closing those airports which are being financialy raped by ryanair can be made.

In addition it's way cheaper to transport frozen salmon by air than by boat across the atlantic.

Lots of perishable stuff is flown into Poland from all around the world,for eg flowers there delivery comes regularly everyday from south America.

And who wouldn't rather fly in and out of the latest tech airport with a smooth transition.
Poland's Super Hup will out date the rest of the E.U. airports in large fashion.
The Hub will be the first step of Poland becoming the number one country in the E.U.

Not concerning all Poles. Only PiS and their brainwashed supporters.

Not from Germany they can't... saw this from a Ukrainian going the other way who makes the point that even in wartime Ukraine rail works better than the dinosaur known as Deutsche Bahn....

Quite.

And there are already four major hubs in this time zone as well as several second level ones (including Warsaw which is growing organically as a hub anyway).

What about Bucuresti? I remember several years ago flying from Warsaw to Bucuresti and over half the passengers were russians speakers presumably transferring further East... the war presumably has gotten in the way of that but it seems like a decent location to be a hub.

A lot depends on the airline group. Warsaw gets people who fly in on Qatar Airlines and Turkish too.

As a hub, it's obviously smaller than the big ones like Frankfurt and Schiphol (ugh) but much nicer and less stressful than some of its rivals like Vienna, or Dusseldorf. Copenhagen is sort of a 'mini-hub' now and there are plenty of routes that are via either Warsaw or Copenhagen. Munich seems to be growing as a hub now and isn't at all bad.

the war presumably has gotten in the way of that

I've changed planes at the new one in Istanbul (horrible, as nasty and as totalitarian-looking as the new Berlin airport and even more expensive in the shops/bars) a few times over the past few months and each time, I noticed that around half the flight are from r*SSian provincial airports. They are really cashing in on the war.
