Warsaw Fryderyk Chopin Interna...
Warsaw Chopin Airport (Polish: Lotnisko Chopina w Warszawie Polish pronunciation: [lɔtˈɲiskɔ ʂɔpɛna v var'ʂavʲɛ]) is an international airport located in the Włochy district of Warsaw, Poland. Formerly Warsaw-Okecie Airport (Port lotniczy Warszawa-Okęcie) or Okecie International Airport, the airport bore the name of its Okęcie neighborhood throughout its history, until its renaming for Polish composer and former Warsaw resident Frédéric Chopin in 2001. Despite the official change, "Okecie" ("Lotnisko Okęcie") remains in popular and industry use, including air traffic and aerodrome references. An underground railway station connected to Warsaw's suburban rail system was opened in June 2012. The second international airport of the city is the much smaller Warsaw Modlin Airport, which opened in 2012 and is used for low-cost traffic. Prayer room or mosque facilities are available at Warsaw Fryderyk Chopin International Airport.
