German media about CPK: "Poland is putting pressure"

According to a “Die Welt” columnist, the Central Communication Port is becoming competition for German airports. Philipp Fritz estimates that for the German aviation industry, which is already struggling with high ecological taxes, this investment is a kind of declaration of war.

Philipp Fritz, in the online edition of the daily “Die Welt”, discusses the construction of the Central Communication Port. According to the journalist, this investment will be implemented, although its final shape is not yet decided. “While our country lacks larger infrastructure projects, Poland is building a new giga-airport. For the German aviation industry, which already suffers from high ecological taxes, this is a kind of declaration of war,” we read in the text of “Die Welt”.

Pressure on German aviation

The journalist reminds that CPK is the idea of ​​Law and Justice, currently an opposition party. Fritz reveals that he tried to get a comment on this matter from the prime minister's office, but received no response. He adds that he sent questions to the government's plenipotentiary, Maciej Lasek, but did not receive a reply. Fritz notes that the German public is not aware of the CPK project, and its implementation will have a significant impact on German aviation. “Poland is getting ready to put pressure on German aviation,” he adds.

The journalist reveals that German airports are struggling with problems such as lack of connections resulting from high aviation and environmental fees. He also notes that other countries have recovered to pre-COVID-19 levels.

Central Communication Port

The Central Communication Port is a planned transfer hub between Warsaw and Łódź, which is to integrate air, rail and road transport. According to the Polish Press Agency, as part of this project, in an area of ​​approximately 3,000 hectares, 37 km west of Warsaw, an airport is to be built.

The CPK will also include railway investments, including a junction at the airport and connections throughout the country, which will enable travel between Warsaw and the largest Polish cities in no longer than 2.5 hours.
