LOT Polish Airlines has signed an agreement with Aviation Capital Group (ACG) over the lease of three B787-9s.
Sourced from ACG’s order book, the first aircraft is expected to be delivered in March 2018. They will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines and will be configured with 24 seats in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 249 in Economy class.
Outlining the carrier’s proposed longterm expansion plan, LOT Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Rafał Milczarski said in September last year the Polish carrier would operate sixteen B787 Family aircraft by 2020. It currently has eight B787-8s on order from Boeing, of which six have been delivered.
“At first Boeing 787-9 will operate flights to destinations in the United States of America. However we hope that soon, we will see them flying to Asia as well,” Milczarski added.
