Warsaw Chopin Airport (Polish: Lotnisko Chopina w Warszawie Polish pronunciation: [lɔtˈɲiskɔ ʂɔpɛna v var’ʂavʲɛ]) (IATA: WAW, ICAO: EPWA) is an international airport located in the Włochy district of Warsaw, Poland. As Poland’s largest, covering 834 hectares of land, and busiest airport, Warsaw Chopin handles just under 40% of the country’s air passenger traffic. Warsaw Chopin handles approximately 300 scheduled flights daily and an ever rising number of charters. London, Chicago, Frankfurt, Paris, and Amsterdam are the busiest international connections, while Kraków, Wrocław, and Gdańsk are the most popular domestic ones.

Formerly Warsaw-Okecie Airport (Port lotniczy Warszawa-Okęcie) or Okecie Airport, the airport bore the name of its Okęcie neighborhood throughout its history, until its renaming for Polish composer and former Warsaw resident Frédéric Chopin in 2001. Despite the official change, “Okecie” (“Lotnisko Okęcie”) remains in popular and industry use, including air traffic and aerodrome references.

An underground railway station connected to Warsaw’s suburban rail system was opened in June 2012 in time for the Euro 2012 football championships and on 25 November 2013, the airport announced accommodating – for the first time in history – its 10 millionth passenger in a single year.

The second international airport of the city is the much smaller Warsaw Modlin Airport, which opened in 2012 and is used for low-cost traffic.

Warsaw Chopin Airport Reviews
★★☆☆☆

Terrible airport. Very slow border control and discourteous service at the border. Airport officials do not recognise passport wich are don't need visa. Also very discourteous personalities. I will avoid this airport and will take Riga or Helsinki.
★★★★☆

Nice small airport with good retail and facilities. Large seating areas, a lot of light and good apron views.

On route from Romania, easy process. Security folk look like you do not mess with them, but friendly and helpful.
★★★★☆

Easy airport to navigate round, helpful staff, but food and drink prices must be the highest in the world.
★☆☆☆☆

Had a layover in Warsaw, Poland. Both legs were with the Polish Airline LOT, and they booked me with 40 minutes of change time. The airplane arrived 20 minutes early and the crew said we will make it fine, and did not provide staff to help us. We would have missed the flight just because of the huge line at passport control, but then there was the additional security check. Plus LOT kindly canceled the flight at the last minute, so we had to stand in line for more than 90 minutes at the huge line at the airport transfer counter...
★★★☆☆

The seats in the waiting area of the gate are bare metal, which is not neat for waiting over 4h if you arrived early.
★★★★★

Lovely big airport, big capacity, lots of seats, good restaurants, clean toilets. It's a pleasure to fly from this airport
★★★★☆
4 5 1
The airport is very nice, security was fairly swift, although there were issues with check-in which resulted in check-in opening late. Food outlets very very expensive, vastly overpriced, so bring your own food!
★★★★☆
4 5 1
McDonalds solves all the food problems. Simply don't eat anywhere else. Great wifi, and FREE showers.
★★★★☆
4 5 1
Great improvement. Airport changed a lot during last 5-10 years and still catching up best european airports. Only Cafe/Restaurant prices should be more reasonable
