Polish airline LOT has announced the airline will start flying between Warsaw and Newark Airport in the United States starting April 28, 2017. The airline currently serves the New York City area with daily flights to JFK.
Flights will initially be operated on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays and from June flights on Tuesdays will be added. At first the flight will be operated with a leased two-class 767-300, but will later be operated with their own 3-class 787 Dreamliner.
“Newark is one of the most important airports to the Polish diaspora on the east coast of the United States. I am pleased that we are able to relaunch that route after a break lasting several years, ensuring our fellow countrymen the most comfortable flights to Poland” – says Rafał Milczarski, CEO of PLL LOT.
“LOT offers the shortest and the most comfortable connections via Warsaw to dozens of cities in Europe. It means only 2 hours transfer time to destinations such Moscow, Prague, Budapest and Vilnius, and great connectivity to major Polish cities, such as Gdańsk or Kraków. We fly one of the youngest fleet in Europe; our crew is professional and hospitable and our hub in Warsaw is one of the most comfortable and passenger friendly in Europe. Newark is no longer a missing link in our route network. Our return to that destination makes us an attractive airline to numerous passengers who have not relied on our services yet”- adds R. Milczarski.
