- LOT Polish Airlines has now added Pula (PUY) in Croatia to its network, starting weekly (Sundays) flights from Warsaw Chopin (WAW). The 958-kilometre airport pairing, launched on 14 May, will be served by the Star Alliance member on its fleet of Q400s, with no other airline offering flights on the route. Pula becomes the fourth Croatian airport to join LOT Polish Airlines’ network, with the carrier also linking its Chopin hub to Split (weekly), Zadar (twice-weekly) and Zagreb (six times weekly) this summer. In total the Polish flag carrier will serve 69 destinations non-stop this summer from its Warsaw hub, seven more than in S16. See how Pula Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
