Bird & Bird has successfully won the right to advise the Solidarity Transport Hub on its selection of key consultants for a new airport in Poland.
According to Bird & Bird, "the Solidarity Transport Hub is a planned transfer hub in the center of Poland which will integrate air, rail, and road transport. The development envisages the construction of an airport located 37 kilometers west of Warsaw and covering an area of 3,000 hectares. The new airport will initially be able to handle up to 45 million passengers per year, with the potential for this to increase to up to 100 million. The investment should create over 150,000 new jobs."
The Bird & Bird team will be led by London-based Partner Stuart Cairns and will include, in Warsaw Partner Tomasz Zalewski and Counsel Magdalena Zablocka-Foulkes, and in London, Partner Marco Nicolai and Senior Associate Chris Murray.
