Warsaw Chopin Airport Car Rental
What is today known as Warsaw-Chopin Airport is the most important airport all over Poland. Taking advantage of a rental car, you have to drive along little less than 20 km to reach Warsaw from this airport.
The idea of an airport that could serve the city of Warsaw began to take shape in the early XX century, but only in 1934 the airport officially started its activity. During the Second World War it was completely destroyed, and only in the early 1970s the airport returned to be used for civil flights.
Nowadays, many airlines work here, among which, for example, TAP Air Portugal and Alitalia: the first one guarantees connection to Lisbon and the second one to Rome.
