The benefits of the Centralny Port Komunikacyjny (CPK) extend beyond commercial aviation, explains the team behind the project.
Even though the Centralny Port Komunikacyjny CPK transport hub is dedicated to civil aviation, the investment has been recognised by the former commander of US ground forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, for a capability and capacity that “no other transport Hub in Poland or elsewhere in Eastern Europe can match”.
The new CPK hub will help improve the security of the region by providing it with the appropriate transport capabilities to enable the smooth and efficient transfer of military units, equipment, goods and humanitarian aid when needed. A significant advantage of the CPK, compared to other similar projects, is its intramodality and the airport’s excellent connection with every part of the country and other key European destinations.
“Despite its civilian nature, the CPK is also of significant importance from the point of view of the defence of both our country and Europe. Of course, it will not be a military base, but it will nevertheless be an extremely important part of NATO’s eastern flank – if only due to a significant increase of military mobility”, said Marcin Horała, Poland’s deputy minister for funds and regional policy, government plenipotentiary for the Centralny Port Komunikacyjny.
