LOT launches direct flight to LAW

LOT has launched a direct flight between Los Angeles and Warsaw. Shortly after 9:40 pm, the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner took off from the Los Angeles airport to begin a nearly 12-hour flight to Poland. Los Angeles is LOT’s fourth North American destination and the first regular connection with the West Coast in the history of the airline.

As of today, LOT’s Dreamliners will be leaving from Los Angeles to Warsaw every Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

“LOT creates a perfect gateway to all willing to travel from Southern California to Central and Eastern Europe – the fastest growing region of the continent. There is already a massive number of passengers travelling from Los Angeles to Poland and other countries in Europe and Middle East such as Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Ukraine, Armenia or Israel. Now they can travel via Warsaw – the most convenient European airport, where for most of our flights we offer connecting time as short as one hour,” says Rafał Milczarski, CEO of LOT.

The flights from Los Angeles will be operated exclusively by Boeing 787 Dreamliners, with three travel classes: LOT Business, LOT Premium Economy and LOT Economy.

Los Angeles is the 7th long-haul connection in LOT’s network and is the airline’s 4th destination in North America. The launch of flights connecting Poland with the US West Coast is another element of PLL LOT’s profitable growth strategy. Newark will be another North American destination served by LOT, as the first plane headed for that city is scheduled to take off as soon as on April 28th. In early August, LOT is expected to launch another direct flight – this time between Kraków and Chicago.

Date: April 4, 2017
