Passengers arriving on eurolot’s inaugural flight from Gdańsk to Katowice were welcomed with a traditional water cannon salute, while those departing to the northern Polish city were invited to sign a commemorative poster. In the future, eurolot plans to operate the route with its new Q400 aircraft.
- eurolot, the state-owned Polish regional airline, launched operation on the 440-kilometre domestic route from Katowice (KTW) to Gdańsk (GDN) on 3 September. Services on the south to north routing are now offered with six weekly frequencies and operated with ATR 72s. There is no competition on the route, however, it was previously operated first by Jetair and then by its successor, OLT Express. Following the latter’s demise, services on the route were discontinued in late July. The new service comes as second former OLT Express route to be taken up by eurolot, after flights from Kraków to Poznań were inaugurated two weeks ago.
