To date, LOT has operated daily flights to Chicago and New York only in the summer period. However, LOT flights to U.S. onboard LOT’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner are becoming increasingly popular. Therefore, the Polish national carrier decided to increase the number of operations and offer daily flights to New York and Chicago in the coming winter season. LOT will fly to Toronto up to 6 times a week, depending on the month, and will continue its operations daily during the Christmas and New Year period.
“Our airline grows thanks not only to new connections but also to the increased number of flights on the most popular routes. We are glad that we will be able to offer our passengers even more flights to New York, Chicago and Toronto in the coming winter. We know how important is the flexibility in choosing the date of a flight, especially in the case of business travel. Therefore, we will make it possible for our passengers to fly to North America from anywhere in Europe nearly every day”- says Adrian Kubicki, Director of the Corporate Communication Office.
The schedule of flights to the U.S. and Canada was designed in a way to offer convenient flights not only to passengers from Warsaw but also to those from other cities in Poland and Europe. In the case of many European cities, the connecting time at LOT’s hub at the Warsaw Chopin Airport for Atlantic flights is less than an hour.
All LOT flights to U.S. will be operated by the world’s most modern plane – Boeing 787 Dreamliner, offering three classes of travel – LOT Economy, LOT Premium and LOT Business Class. Business-class passengers have at their disposal 18 passengers seats in a spacious cabin, which guarantees privacy and more space for rest. Each seat in this class reclines into a lie-flat bed. Moreover, passengers flying business class are offered high-class dishes as well as a wide selection of drinks and personal service. LOT Premium class passengers, too, have more space at their disposal, with modern seats equipped with wide headrests and support for arms and legs, and are offered carefully composed dishes served on elegant tableware. Passengers flying LOT Economy Class are able to travel comfortably thanks to comfortable seats equipped with LED screens and USB ports. They are also offered a selection of fresh meals and tasty snacks.
The increase in the number of flights to North America is the next stage in the dynamic growth of the airline. This year LOT has launched flights on a total of 22 new routes, including long-haul flights to Tokyo. In October the airline will launch a long-haul route between Warsaw and Seoul.
