Technical problems in Modlin Airport, Poland
In December 2012, due to cracks appearing on the asphalt surface of the runway, all Ryanair and Wizzair operations were moved to the main air gate of the Polish capital, Warsaw-Chopin Airport.
The repair works, anticipated to be completed by the end of January 2013, did not bring satisfactory results.
According to Modlin Airport authorities, the necessary resurfacing of the runway, requires temperatures above 0 degrees Celsius. This means that in the Polish climate, the repair works at Modlin Airport will most likely not restart before March.
Modlin Airport arrivals will not recommence before the runway has been repaired.
