LOT Polish Airlines is now the only carrier operating to Warsaw from London-Heathrow.
With the decision by British Airways to move its Warsaw flights to London-Gatwick, LOT now has exclusive use of Heathrow for flights to its home hub in the Polish capital. LOT operates three flights a day to Warsaw from London, offering a full Business Class service aboard its Boeing 737-400 and 737-500 aircraft.
As an additional service to Warsaw-bound passengers, effective 9 April the carrier has introduced online check-in facilities via www.lot.com , easing the process at Heathrow’s Terminal 1.
The introduction of the summer schedule also sees LOT resuming services to Beijing after an absence of almost 10 years. Evening flights depart on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Return flights operate Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The route is operated with long-range Boeing 767 aircraft.
LOT Regional Director UK&Ireland Slawomir Noszczak commented: ‘Heathrow remains the first choice departure airport for business travellers and we therefore anticipate continuing traffic growth on our Warsaw flights from London. We have already established a strong reputation as a business carrier and we look forward to welcoming even more passengers to our services.
‘In addition, the launch of flights to Beijing is the first step towards expanding our long-haul network to the Far East. The close economic ties between Asia and Europe and an ever-increasing number of tourists to the region make this a prime area for expansion for LOT. With the strategic position of Warsaw, we also expect passenger growth from across Europe, connecting with onward flights at our home hub.’
LOT Polish Airlines has for the last 10 years consecutively won the title Best Airline in Central and Eastern Europe in the prestigious Business Traveller Magazine awards.
