The Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW) is the main international facility for Poland’s capital, Warsaw, and the busiest airport in the country. There is another airport in the city, called the Warsaw Modlin Airport (WMI) but this is primarily a low-cost carrier hub, and it is unlikely you will fly into this port if you are travelling from Australia. The Warsaw Chopin Airport has had a foothold in the city since the 1920s, but only became a commercial hub after World War 2. This facility is also the operating base for LOT Polish Airlines, the flag carrying airline for the country, and a Star Alliance member.
Within the terminal buildings you’ll find a number of amenities that will make transit through this airport easier. There are a few information desks you can access, plus cash machines, foreign exchange counters, a full-service bank, and free WiFi for up to half an hour. You can eat in a number of eateries, from restaurants to snack kiosks, and choose from the local Polish cuisine, or try something international.
There is a duty-free section that is available to international travellers, and a selection of gift shops, designer stores, and travel goods outlets. Other facilities you can utilise are a medical aid centre, travel agencies, and executive lounges.
Fly to Warsaw with LOT Polish Airlines, Finnair, SAS, Swiss Air, airberlin, KLM, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, Qantas, Etihad Airways, Aegean Airlines, Alitalia, China Southern and Air France.
· If you rent a car, you can reserve one within the airport from one of the many agencies represented there, or you can organise a vehicle in advance and book online with us. To get into town, you have to get on the DW634 towards Warsaw, and follow this road until you see the DW631, turn right onto that road and you’ll come straight into the downtown area.
· You can catch a bus into Warsaw central directly outside of the arrivals hall. The journey should only be half an hour, and cost less than 5PLN ($1.60) for a ticket into town. Airport transfers can also be arranged to save you the hassle of organising travel into the town.
· You can find taxis just outside the terminal building. Look for officially licensed taxis to be sure of a regulated price. The journey into Warsaw should come to about 50-60PLY ($16-19), and take around half an hour.
