Abstract

The dynamic development of air transport worldwide and, as a result, problems with airport capacity affect many countries, including Poland. According to forecasts, the main Polish airport located in Warsaw will reach its saturation capacity in 2022. Consequently, the airport system in Poland is undergoing significant transformations to become a hub-andspoke based model. The Central Communication Port (CCP) is designated to be the heart and its launch is planned for 2028. For the Central Communication Port to start operations effectively in 2028, a number of changes are required in the current airport system. The years left to launch CCP will be a transitional period, during which it will be necessary to ensure, on the one hand, effective functioning of the airport system, and on the other, to prepare passenger traffic for the shift to CCP. Developing the railway and road infrastructure and their connection to the Central Communication Port to areas of important relevance will be necessary.
