LOT airlines launch connections Warsaw – Washington. The connection will be direct and the journey will last over 9 hours. New flights will be launched in 2020, in June.
The flight launches direct flights between Warsaw and Washington. In June 2020, we will fly to the US capital for the first time directly from Chopin Airport. The flight will last over 9 hours and will be carried out 3 times a week: on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The planes will start at 16:30 Polish time and fly to the USA at 20:30 local time, which, given the time difference, means just over a 9 hour journey.
In addition to the connection with Washington, the carrier will also launch a direct connection between Warsaw and San Francisco, which will debut in August 2020. Changes in the timetable result from the abolition of visa requirements. From November 11 this year, Polish citizens can travel to the USA without the need for a special, expensive visa. It has been replaced by a simple application that we can complete before departure via the internet.
The direct connection from Warsaw to Washington has long been on our “short list”. During thorough business analyzes, we not only noticed the mere fact of joining the Polish and US capitals, but also the growing tourist and business potential of this connection every year.
In addition, Central and Eastern Europe has not yet had such a convenient connection to Washington. New connections to the USA are the backbone of our strategy – says Rafał Milczarski, president of LOT Polish Airlines.
