Warsaw Chopin Airport ( ) is an international airport located in the Włochy district of Warsaw, Poland. Poland's busiest airport, Warsaw Chopin handles just under 50% of the country's air passenger traffic.

Formerly Warsaw-Okecie Airport ( ) 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" ( ) remains in popular and industry use, including air traffic and aerodrome references.

Warsaw Chopin handles approximately 300 scheduled flights daily and an ever rising number of charters. London, Frankfurt, Paris, and Amsterdam are the busiest international connections, while Kraków, Wrocław, and Gdańsk are the most popular domestic ones.
