The location of the main airport has been selected so as not only to sit in between two main polish cities but also to connect to the intersection of two significant, both rail and road routes linking all four points of compass in Europe. Chosen area is considered to be highly urbanized and well developed when it comes to communication. Due to this condition reaching the outermost polish airport would not take more than a four-hour drive or three-hour train ride. Not only is the location excellent when it comes to the passenger or tourist traffic, but also to the transportation of goods. The central rail line as well as the freeway linking the south and the north is being strongly exploited for any kind of transfer between the Gdansk harbor and the Slask Metropolitan Area.
The paramount inspiration for the main terminal was a ear of rye or wheat which both had been the most significantly grown grain types in Poland for many centuries. The form not Orly has been used as many symbols, pottery and fabric decorations, but also is considered to be the main symbol of Slavic culture which Has been inhabiting this region of Europe from the most ancient times. The line visible on the roof corresponds to the thread that each and etery ear has attached to itself and the offset of the to buildings itself was thought to reflect the characteristic form of the composition of the grains in the eye. The color that has been chosen for the edifice is not accidental as well for it relates strongly to the color of late-summer, mellow wheatear.
