LOT Polish Airlines is to add London City Airport (LCY) to its list of Warsaw Chopin (WAW) destinations from January. Four 106-seat Embraer 190s will be added to its roster bringing its e-jet fleet up to 34 aircraft at the end of this year.
Departures to WAW will be twice daily, except Sundays, at 09:30, (arriving 13:00) and 18:30 (arriving 22:00), except Saturdays for the 2hr 30min flight.
LOT is emphasising connections to eastern Europe from LCY, including Bucharest, Kiev, Lviv, Riga, Tbilisi and Vilnius. The airline also flies from its WAW hub to Astana, Beijing, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo.
“We are extremely happy to announce this prestigious destination as our 100th connection in our network. LOT has a long-lasting history of operations to London Heathrow, where we are flying three times a day. Now we are opening the new chapter by putting two daily flights to London City into our offer. I am the most certain that this new connection will be appreciated by our passengers particularly from CEE region and is going to be one of the most successful routes in our constantly growing network,” says Adrian Kubicki, director corporate communications of LOT Polish Airlines.
LOT joins the growing number of airlines at London City where Embraer perform 57.8% of all departures.
