LOT Polish launches Budapest from Wroclaw
LOT Polish began a brand-new route on 24 August, with the Wroclaw – Budapest taking off.
At 443 kilometres, Wroclaw – Budapest operates once-weekly and supplements the carrier’s existing Warsaw and Krakow routes from the Hungarian airport.
Wroclaw may seem an unusual route at such a low frequency, but 7,000 flew indirectly between the two last year, OAG Traffic Analyser, using MIDT booking data, shows.
While the carrier’s Embraer 195 will operate the initial two return trips, its 78-seat Dash-8-400s will operate it instead from September.
LOT has grown strongly at Budapest, with 606,000 two-way seats there last year, according to OAG schedules data.
With almost 10,000 indirect passengers, Budapest – Gdansk is a larger market than Wroclaw. Will it happen?
