The new airport, railway junction and road junction will be built in the Baranów commune, about 30 km west of Warsaw. The junction is to bring together a huge airport, a railway station of regional and high-speed rail and roadways. Business and shopping centers, exhibition centers, hotels, in a word, a city should be built in the vicinity. The idea is to create a bridge between Europe and the rest of the world, especially Asia and Africa. The creation of a new city is the result of the creation of the STH, and not a separately prepared investment.

The investment is to be completed within 10 years. It is to cost PLN 30-35 billion.

The airport itself is to be built on an area of 3,000 hectares (Okęcie has 600 hectares). Initially, it is to have two parallel RWY runways, 4,000 mx 60 m in size, with the possibility of extension to 4 RWY runways. Initially, it is to handle 45 million passengers a year. Ultimately, up to 100 million people a year. In terms of technical, safety and standards, the new airport is to be in the top ten airports in the world.

Poles will fly from the Central Communication Port in 2027.
