Study works related with long-term development of Warsaw F. Chopin Airport


The studies will identify possible optimisation in the airport's safety and security and how to reduce capacity bottlenecks by defining a long-term airport development strategy.


More specifically, the studies will address areas related to safety of air operations affected by the existing location and infrastructure (2 crossing runways, proximity to the city-centre,...) and will seek to analyse airport operating processes, taking into account business continuity and threats resulting from the natural environment (e.g. bird strike, weather conditions,...).


The action also intends to reduce the negative impact of the airport's operations on the natural environment. This includes measures in the field of water and drainage management, electric energy management and analysis of bird migration and bird resting areas in the vicinity of the airport.


Execution of the action will help to reinforce the role of the TEN-T node by increasing its efficiency, capacity and improving environmental impact.
