- LOT Polish Airlines now flies 12 times weekly to Berlin Tegel (TXL) from its Warsaw Chopin (WAW) hub, having ceased operations to the German capital in July 2013. The route, which started on 4 December, is operated by the Star Alliance carrier’s Q400s and E170s, and a third daily flight will be added from June 2018. Tegel is the sixth airport in Germany that LOT Polish Airlines operates to, with Nuremburg soon to become the seventh. “LOT Polish Airlines is back in Berlin. We are pleased that the airline is resuming its connection to Warsaw,” says Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, CEO of Berlin Brandenburg Airport. “We share a long history: LOT was one of the first airlines at Schönefeld Airport. It is good to know that they are once again securing this important route into the economic centre of our neighbours.” There is no competition on the airport pair.
