Airports in Warsaw
Warsaw is served by two airports: Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW) and Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia Airport (WMI).
Warsaw Chopin Airport is the older and busier of the two. In fact, it’s the busiest airport in Poland, handling nearly 40% of passengers flying in and out of the country. Until 2001 it was known as Warsaw-Okecie Airport, and the name is still often used by locals.
Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia Airport opened in summer 2012, and is a hub for low cost carriers. Before opening as a commercial airport, it was used by the military. Most notably, the German Luftwaffe used it as a base of operations in occupied Poland. After 1945, the airport was used by the Polish and Soviet airforces before closing in 2000.
Airlines that fly to Warsaw
British Airways, LOT Polish Airlines, Norwegian Air Shuttle, and Wizz Air all fly to Warsaw Chopin Airport from the UK. Currently Ryanair is the only carrier flying from the UK to Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia Airport.
