Wroclaw Copernicus Airport (Polish: Port Lotniczy Wroclaw im. Mikolaja Kopernika) (IATA: WRO, ICAO: EPWR) is an international civil-military airport in Wroclaw in Lower Silesian Voivodeship in southwestern Poland. It is Poland's 5th busiest airport. The airport is located 10 km (6.2 mi) southwest of the city center. It has one runway, one passenger terminal, one cargo terminal, and one general aviation terminal. Wroclaw Airport is also often used by the Polish Air Force, US Air Force, NATO Air Force, and Heavy Airlift Wing.
The airport was built in 1938 for German military purposes before World War II (Schöngarten). It was operated briefly by Soviet forces following the war before being used for civilian purposes in 1945. Services were operated to Warsaw, Lódz, Poznan and Katowice. By 1992 destinations also included Krakow, Rzeszów, Gdansk, Szczecin, and Koszalin. The first international flights were inaugurated in January 1993, serving Frankfurt, Germany.
On December 6, 2005, the airport was renamed after the famous astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus. Terminal extensions were officially opened on the same day, increasing the airport's capacity to 750,000 passengers per year. This capacity was quickly exceeded by several hundred thousand (in the first 9 months of 2007 the airport served 972,505 passengers) so the existing terminal space was expanded by 1,900 m² to alleviate some of the congestion, but more importantly make the terminal facilities conform to the requirements of the Schengen Agreement, which was implemented at Poland's airports on 31 March 2008.
"Business Traveler Poland" recognized Wroclaw's airport as the best Polish regional airport in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. In 2017, the Sleepingairports.net portal recognized Wroclaw's airport as the best in Poland and eleventh in Europe.
In May 2014, the HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) base was launched at the airport. In 2015, Ryanair announced that it had selected Copernicus Airport Wroclaw for its aircraft maintenance base. The construction of the hangar to fit 2 C-type aircraft (Boeing 737) was finished in 2017. The airport upgraded to the ILS system from Category I to Category II in April 2016. In October 2022, Ryanair began the expansion of WAMS (Wroclaw Aircraft Maintenance Services) with another hangar and two spaces for C-type aircraft (Boeing 737). The Airport also announced a number of projects including new taxiways, additional apron space, and deicing designated space.
Due to the existence of NATO garrisons nearby, in which US troops have been stationed as part of the Atlantic Resolve operation since January 2017, Wroclaw airport is very often used by US Air Force transport aircraft.
