“We have already opened more than a dozen connections on completely new routes; we have also made our way back to a few major European airports. We have also completed the long-awaited first flight from Warsaw to Tokyo. This rapidly developing flight network forms the crucial part of our long-term development strategy until the year 2020. Our extensive array of available flights, our convenient connecting flights at the Warsaw hub with a minimum transfer time of 30 minutes, our state-of-the-art fleet and our supreme service quality have made it possible for LOT to develop a great reputation both with passengers from all across Poland and from other European countries” – says Adrian Kubicki, Acting Executive Director and Spokesperson.

At the end of March, LOT increased the frequency of flights to other attractive destinations, including Athens, Barcelona, Yerevan, Belgrade, Zagreb and Chisinău as well as local flights between Gdańsk and Cracow.
