First flights from Poland's Central Transportation Port (CPK) are planned for the end of 2027, the government commissioner for the CPK, Marcin Horała, told the Rzeczpospolita daily on Friday, adding that the government "will do everything to keep to this date."

The CPK is a greenfield project located in central Poland, between Warsaw and Łódź, and is designed to integrate air, rail and road transport.

"This is a very ambitious schedule. (....) Everything should be going very smoothly, with no delays, if the date is to be achieved," he underlined.

Asked about the estimated cost of the project, Horała answered that "it is now being evaluated at PLN 25 billion (EUR 5.9 billion)."

"Of course, this sum may be slightly modified as the project progresses," Horala said.
