2008-06-24Millionth Passenger

Katowice Airport's millionth passenger was checked through on the 24th June, one month earlier than last year, at the arrival hall of Terminal B at Katowice Airport in Pyrzowice, which is managed by the Upper Silesian Aviation Group. The millionth passenger was Mr Georg Dittrich, who flew in on a Germanwings flight from Cologne/Bonn. Georg is a frequent guest of the airport in Katowice, as he runs a company in Poland. The lucky passenger was offered a token gift from the Upper Silesian Aviation Group in the form of a Premium Card enabling free parking at Katowice Airport and a voucher for dinner for two at Szafranowy Dwór in Czeladź. A Germanwings representative presented the millionth passenger with two tickets valued at 100 Euro each, redeemable on any Germanwings flight, together with several of the company's promotional gifts.
Katowice Airport first checked through its millionth passenger (over a 12 month period) in 2005. In fact, it was the 16th November and the millionth passenger was Monika Bujak a restaurant owner from Chorzów. The dynamic growth in passenger movement has resulted in the millionth passenger being checked through earlier every year. In 2006, it was Ella Schlothaue,r from Germany, on the 14th September. In 2007, this exciting event was almost a month and a half earlier, on the 27th July. This time, the lucky passenger was Giovanni Genta from Italy. From 1994, since the Upper Silesian Aviation Group has managed Katowice Airport in Pyrzowice, the first millionth passenger was checked through on 11th February, 2002. 8 years was needed to achieve a result that this year was reached in less than 6 months.
