LOT Polish Airlines launches flights between New Delhi and Warsaw


LOT Polish Airlines launched its 8-hour new flight to Warsaw from New Delhi. LOT Polish Airlines’ state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner took off from New Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport on September 12 for its 8-hour new flight to Warsaw. From now on, LOT will be operating this route five times per week and thus ensuring the most convenient travel option not only to Poland but also providing seamless transfers to Central, Western and Eastern Europe. New Delhi is now LOT’s 6th Asian destination.

LOT Polish Airlines, the fastest growing airline in Europe and Star Alliance Member has launched its regular flights between the two capitals. From now on Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft (B787-8 and B787-9) will be operating this route five times weekly according to the following summer schedule which is from September 12 to October 26.

“Today we had a pleasure to welcome the first Indian guests aboard our Dreamliner operating between New Delhi and Warsaw. LOT not only provides the shortest and most convenient way of travel to Warsaw but also developed a perfect gateway to all passengers travelling from the Delhi catchment area to Europe. LOT is the leading legacy carrier in Central and Eastern Europe – the fastest-growing region of the continent. There is a huge potential for air travels – almost 9.5 million passengers travelled between India and Europe and 3.3 million between Delhi and Europe during the last 12 months. Our convenient schedule, including an overnight eastbound flight, a comfortable onboard product and seamless connectivity via Warsaw, will certainly increase the flow of business and leisure travellers coming to and from India,” said Rafał Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines.

LOT will be the first carrier from Central and Eastern Europe to connect India with so many European cities, connecting the home town airports of Star Alliance member carriers: LOT Polish Airlines and Air India. The new route launch features excellent onward connectivity via Warsaw, starting from just 40 minutes transit time for example to London City Airport, Paris, Brussels, Kraków, Geneva, Amsterdam, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Hanover, Oslo, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Berlin, Billund, Prague and Budapest.

For passengers travelling on the Warsaw-New Delhi long-haul route, LOT Polish Airlines features Indian meals in all three cabins (LOT Business Class, LOT Premium Economy Class and LOT Economy Class), and complimentary beverages including alcoholic drinks as well as in-flight entertainment system.

“Opening direct flights always accelerates the potential in the tourism industry. Due to the new LOT flight to Delhi, many Poles will decide to visit India, even though they had no such plans before. I heartily encourage them to do so, since India is an amazing destination with its diversity, cultural heritage and outstanding cuisine. I am very happy that from now on LOT will be a carrier of choice for many Polish and other European tourists wanting to explore India,” said LOT’s CEO.

On the other hand, we hope to see more Indian guests visiting the magnificent cities like Warsaw, Kraków, Gdańsk or Wrocław, added Rafał Milczarski.
