The first phase of the T2 terminal extension has already begun, it is scheduled for 2028.

Investment in the airport will also be complemented by investment in transport links. “For decades we have been talking about the connection of Masaryk Station - Airport - Kladno. Finally, we started building and it is an investment of 44 billion. I asked the director of SŽDC to coordinate the center-airport connection, ie also to be completed in 2028. To this comes another investment, namely the extension of the R7 road to Kladno, which is to be extended by two lanes. These are all huge investments that are part of the National Investment Plan, ” said Prime Minister Andrej Babiš.
