LOT Polish has announced plans for a new nonstop route between Warsaw and Miami.

The four times weekly service will launch on June 1, 2019, and will be operated by a B787 aircraft.

Flights will depart Warsaw at 1205 on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, arriving into Miami at 1730, with the return leg leaving the Florida city at 2005, landing back into the Polish capital at 1215 the following day.

Miami will be LOT’s sixth North American airport, joining New York JFK (from Warsaw and Budapest), Newark (from Warsaw and Rzeszow), Chicago (from Warsaw, Krakow and Budapest), Los Angeles (from Warsaw), and Toronto (from Warsaw).

LOT Polish took delivery of its 11th B787 in June, and is scheduled to expanded its Dreamliner fleet to 15 aircraft by the end of 2019.

Commenting on the news Rafał Milczarski, LOT CEO, said:

“Miami is currently one of the largest markets in the US so far not served by LOT. It is the first such convenient connection between Central and Eastern Europe and Florida. Miami is not only a perfect holiday destination but also an important business centre in the United States.

“Currently, almost half a million passengers per year travel between Eastern Europe and Florida. I am convinced that many passengers from Poland and neighbouring countries will take advantage of our latest offer.

“It takes approximately one hour to transfer via LOT’s hub in Warsaw and continue travel to Miami onboard the most modern aircraft in the world – Boeing 787 Dreamliner. I am convinced this new nonstop service will be in favour of passengers travelling from all over the Europe and beyond.”
