The John Paul II airport at Balice is seeking contractors for a 1 billion złoty scheme to expand its capacity to handle 8 million passengers a year, by 2016.
The upgrade would almost triple the capacity of Kraków’s international terminal, which last year had around 3 million passengers. In the invitation to tender for the contract, potential bidders are advised that the airport needs remodeling, expansion, improved infrastructure, an internal transport network, and footbridge connecting the terminal with the car park.
Money for the work would come from the airport’s own reserves, from issuing bonds worth 615 million zł, and from the European Union. The airport is also looking for a small investor.
