Chairman Jan Pamuła forecast that about PLN 150 million (EUR 32.4 million) will be spent on the expansion of the facility in 2016.

Tasks at hand include the modernisation of the old terminal building, following the opening of a new terminal in September 2015.

Once work has been completed the connected buildings will function as one unified terminal.

Meanwhile, a new car park is to be created which should accommodate 850 cars and 50 buses.

A decision is also expected on whether to build a new runway, although construction would not start until 2018.

Last year saw records broken at the airport, with 2015 seeing the largest number of passengers in its history. Over 4.2 million travellers used the airport in 2015, up 11 percent on 2014. (nh/pk)
