Warsaw Frederic Chopin

About The Airport

Warsaw Chopin Airport is Poland's largest and busiest - in 2017, it handled approximately 16 million passengers. It is also the busiest airport of the newer EU member states. Until 2001, it was known as 'Warsaw - Okecie Airport' but was renamed in tribute to the Polish composer Frédéric Chopin. Serving Poland's capital, this airport has just one terminal, known as Terminal A. There were previously 2 terminals, which is why the different airport sections are confusingly referred to as Old Terminal (1) and New Terminal (2). Terminal A has a South Hall and a North Hall. Check-in areas A and B are located in the South Hall, while C, D and E are in the North Hall.
