Modlin airport to remain closed for big planes till end-March
January 22, 2013
The Modlin airport, situated 40 kilometers north of Warsaw, will reopen for big passenger planes probably in April, Modlin airport CEO Piotr Okienczyc said Monday.
In December, the Regional Building Inspectorate closed a part of Modlin's runway because of surface problems. In effect the runway was reduced to 1,500 meters making it impossible for bigger planes to land.
The aiport - which opened last summer to take much of the budget airline traffic previously handled by Warsaw Chopin International Airport – will remain closed until the repair works on the damaged runway have been fully completed.
