“The investment in the Solidarity Transport Hub is not endangered under any circumstances and we do not, and will not, consider withdrawing from it,” he said.

Marcin Horała, a deputy Infrastructure Minister and government’s plenipotentiary for the Solidarity Transport Hub, added that it is likely that in June, the Polish government will work over the financial plan of the CPK. In his opinion, air transport is one of the key sectors in Poland.

From Monday, domestic air connections have been restored in Poland. “I hope international flights will also return soon,” Mr Sasin said.

The Solidarity Transport Hub is a project that involves the construction of a large airport and rebuilding the rail network throughout Poland to improve its connections with other parts of the country. Together with the accompanying road and rail infrastructure, the facility is due to cost up to PLN 35bn (EUR 8.14bn).

At 3,000 hectares, the port will be built about 37km (23 miles) west of the Polish capital. In its first phase, the port is planned to service around 45 million passengers annually, with possible expansions accommodating up to 100 million.

Construction of the Solidarity Transport Hub is planned to finish by the end of 2027.
