LOT Polish Airlines resumes the route from Warsaw to Beijing
LOT Polish Airlines’ Warsaw to Beijing
On 29 May, LOT Polish Airlines introduced thrice-weekly services from Warsaw (WAW) to Beijing (PEK). The 7,000-kilometre route between the capitals of Poland and China is currently offered with 767-300ER aircraft. Marcin Piróg, president of LOT Polish Airlines, said: “LOT is going back to the Far East, the world’s fastest developing region. We are very well prepared to introduce flights to Beijing. We have convenient slots, high-class airports in the centre of both cities, a Star Alliance partner Air China and high standard of in-flight service during just a nine-hour flight. The prestige of the route will soon be enhanced by introducing the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.” LOT previously briefly offered the route in the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but was forced to withdraw from the market following Russia’s cancellation of the airline’s permit for flights over Siberia.
