LOT Polish Airlines, Poland’s flag carrier has announced a new non-stop service between Warsaw and New Delhi, commencing on 17 September 2019.

Like all LOT long-haul flights, the new route will be operated by state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner five times per week. The announcement was made by LOT Polish Airlines during the Global Aviation Summit in Mumbai.

The new route launch will provide the shortest and most convenient connection from New Delhi directly to the centrally located hub in Warsaw as well as access to many Central, Eastern and Western European cities. The first flight will commence on 17 September from Warsaw Chopin Airport to New Delhi’s Terminal 3 (with the return flight taking off from New Delhi on 18 September).

The new connection will be operated exclusively by the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Each aircraft will feature three class of service – LOT Business Class, LOT Premium Economy Class, as well as LOT Economy Class with modern seats, personal in-flight entertainment screens and USB sockets, and fresh and diverse international and Indian served aboard.

“The long-awaited flight between Poland and India is becoming a fact. I am pleased to announce that this magnificent destination is being added to LOT’s growing network today. This is a great moment in our 90-year history and evidence of our dynamic development,” Rafał Milczarski, CEO, LOT said. “Poland, located in the very heart of Europe will be a gateway for Indian passengers, enabling access to various destinations across Europe. The potential for this flight is huge – over 8.9 million passengers travelled between India and Europe in 2017. A convenient schedule provided by LOT, including an overnight eastbound flight, a comfortable on-board product and seamless connectivity via Warsaw, will certainly increase the flow of business and leisure travellers coming to and from India,” he added.

New Delhi was chosen not without reason as the next LOT destination in Asia. After Singapore, India is the second centre of direct investment in Asia for Polish entrepreneurs. For Indian businesses, Poland is an important investment market i.e. in the IT sector and a gateway to all countries within the European Union. The new LOT flight will be a key element in strengthening economic ties and developing business relations between the two countries.
