LOT heads London City double celebration

New services to Budapest by LOT Polish Airlines and Munich by British Airways gave London City Airport (LCY) a double cause for celebration last week. The LOT launch also joins existing flights between LCY and Warsaw.

The Polish carrier is flying direct to Budapest 12 times a week in the latest expansion following its acquisition of four new Embraer E190 jets. The airline is also launching flights between LCY and Vilnius from 1 May.

On Budapest, LOT director of corporate communications Adrian Kubicki said: “LCY is the most convenient airport for passengers wanting to get to the City of London and there is great potential in this route with average annual passenger traffic of some 1.4m.

“After flights to New York, Chicago and Kraków launched last year, now it’s time for London City. We are certain the new connections will find favour with passengers to and from the CEE region and will be among the most successful on our growing network.”

The launch of the Munich service means BA, which this year has also increased frequency to Berlin from the Docklands airport to 18 return flights a week, now offers four German routes from LCY including Dusseldorf and Frankfurt, and a total of 82 return flights a week.
