Airport Facts

Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (Port lotniczy im. Fryderyka Chopina) is an airport located in the Okecie borough of Warsaw, Poland. It was formerly called Okecie International Airport. Named after Poland's famous composer Frederic Chopin, it is the country's largest airport.

History and future
The land was used for aviation since 1910, while in 1927 it was decided that Okecie would become the city's primary airport. After the completion of technical buildings and the passenger terminal in 1934, the airport took over the handling of all traffic from the Pole Mokotowskie airfield. Except LOT Polish Airlines, Okecie was also home to four squadrons of the Polish Air Force and to aircraft manufacturer Doswiadczalne Zaklady Lotnicze.

During World War II the airport infrastructure was almost completely destroyed. In 1969 a new international terminal was opened; domestic flights continued to operate from the facilities built on the site of the pre-war terminal. The current two story Terminal One was constructed in 1992 to replace the seperate domestic and international terminals. The latter has since been mostly torn down with the arrivals hall being adapted in 2003 to form the temporary Etiuda Terminal for low cost carriers.

The construction of a second terminal to deal with rising traffic is currently under way. The combined Terminal 1 (T1) and Terminal 2 (T2) will triple the airport's capacity and be open by spring 2006. There are also plans to move low cost flights to the former military airfield in Modlin north of Warsaw as well as longer-term projects of building a completely new airport to serve the city with Modlin, Sochaczew and Mszczonów being possible locations.
