The process of unification of Europe requires Poznan to adapt quickly to new challenges and conditions of the market economy.Such a challenge is the opening of the city towards new economic partners, investors and tourists. Openness means,first of all, transport accessibility of the city, including air accessibility.
In order to improve air accessibility, the Poznan City Development Plan 2005-2010 envisages, among others:
