Both Warsaw Chopin Airport and Warsaw Modlin Airport were evacuated following anonymous telephone calls late on Tuesday afternoon.
About 300 people were evacuated from the former and around 400 from the latter.
However, nothing suspicious was found at either site.
Police say that a 30-year-old man has been detained near Warsaw in connection with the matter.
If guilty, he could serve up to eight years in prison.
It is the second false alarm to affect Warsaw Modlin Airport of late. On Easter Sunday, a drunken 28-year-old man allegedly told border guards that there was a bomb at the airport, leading to the evacuation of 800 people. (nh/pk)
