LOT Polish Airlines to launch services on Warsaw-New Delhi route from Sept 2019
Jan 25, 2019: Celebrating its 90th anniversary, Poland's flag carrier LOT Polish Airlines announces non-stop services to the capital city of India, New Delhi, five times a week, starting September 17, 2019.
The first flight will commence on September 17 from Warsaw Chopin Airport to New Delhi's Terminal 3 (with the return flight taking off from New Delhi on September 18).
As with all of LOT's long-haul services, the new route will be operated by state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
The new route launch will provide the shortest and most convenient connection from centrally located hub in Warsaw to New Delhi as well as access to many Central, Eastern and Western-European cities.
"This is a great moment in our 90-year history and also evidence of our dynamic development," says Rafa%u0142 Milczarski, CEO of LOT.
'Over 8.9 million passengers travelled between India and Europe in 2017,' he adds.
On the launch of services to India, the airline in its release said: 'India is inhabited by over 1.3 billion citizens and is the world's 7th biggest economy. After Singapore, India is the second centre of direct investment in Asia for Polish entrepreneurs. In turn, for Indian business Poland has cost-effective and profitable investment environment.'
The launch of the connection from Warsaw to New Delhi is part of the profitable growth strategy which LOT has been implementing since the beginning of 2016.
This year, deliveries of the next nine B737 MAX are scheduled, increasing their number by the end of this year to 14.
Also by the end of this year, four more B787 Dreamliner aircraft will be included in the fleet, which will increase their number in the LOT fleet to 15.Read also: India to cooperate with Poland to promote civil aviation sector
