From October 2011 to March 2012 Skanska has realized works on the International Airport in Pyrzowice, near Katowice. The main intention was to expand main hall in terminal A within the queve in check-in and in the waiting area. The main objective of the investment was to improve the work of the terminal and also improve passenger service.
Airport in Pyrzowice has two terminals for passengers. Terminal A built in the 90s is dedicated for Non-Schengen flights and some of charter planes. Terminal B was opened in 2007. Every year 3,6 mn passengers use the airport in Pyrzowice.
Works at the airport started in Autumn 2011 and included extension of terminal by adding an aisle 9 meters width and 102 meters long. The idea was to extend the terminal by additional 1000 square meters and adjustment the appearance of terminal A to modern terminal B. The whole object was made in construction steel. We also made glass facade and roof hanged on ropes. Skanska has executed the land development, sidewalks and access roads.
With the investment terminal has gained a spacious interior but also new and interesting appearance. Terminal A is now integrated with the second terminal B.
Extension of the Pyrzowice Airport is not the only investment realized by Skanska. In Spring 2011 we completed modernization of the Wizz air technical hangar.
