LOT Polish Airlines’ Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner took off a few days agao from Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport to begin 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. Delhi is now LOT’s 6th Asian destination.
LOT Polish Airlines, the fastest growing airline in Europe and Star Alliance Member has launched today 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.
“Today we had a pleasure to welcome the first Indian guests aboard our Dreamliner operating between 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 of air travels – almost 9.5M passengers travelled between India and Europe and 3.3M between Delhi and Europe during the last 12 months. Our convenient schedule, 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,” says 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, Krakow, Geneva, Amsterdam, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Hanover, Oslo, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Berlin, Billund, Prague and Budapest.
For passengers travelling on the Warsaw-Delhi long-haul route, LOT Polish Airlines features Indian meals in all three cabins (LOT Business Class, LOT Premium Economy Class, LOT Economy Class), complimentary beverages including alcoholic drinks as well as inflight entertainment system including the latest Bollywood releases in Hindi. Furthermore, to provide the best possible onboard experience, there will always be a Hindi-speaking crew member on board.
