Warsaw Airport was opened in 1934 and During World War II, Okęcie was often used as a battleground between the German Army and Polish resistance and was almost completely destroyed.
The airport was rebuilt in 1945, being LOT Polish Airlines the responsible to do that. In 1969, a brand new terminal was operational and a year later, the airport served its first million passengers.
In 1990 after the fall of the Soviet Union, a new terminal was started and finished 2 years later, Terminal 1. Terminal 2 was built in 2007-2008.
WAW Airport was known as Warsaw – Okecie Airport until it was renamed in 2001 as a tribute to the Polish composer Frédéric Chopin. The name Okecie Airport is still being used in some cases.
The most recent changes in the airport were made in 2012 in time for the UEFA Euro 12 football championship.
