LOT Polish Adds Flights to Washington Dulles

Polish flag carrier, LOT has added a new U.S destination to its route map, connecting its home base in Warsaw with Washington Dulles three times a week as of June 2, 2020. 

The new flight will be operated by LOT’s flagship aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which the carrier operates both the 787-8 and the larger 787-9 variants. The outbound flight will depart Warsaw at 4:25 p.m. arriving into Washington Dulles at 8:30 p.m.

In less than two hours turnaround time, the aircraft will depart back from the U.S metropolis at 10:25 p.m. arriving into the Polish capital at 1:25 p.m. the following afternoon. Flights will run on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. 

In a press release, LOT’s CEO, Rafal Milczarki, commented on the new addition saying: “A direct flight from Warsaw to Washington, D.C., has long been on our shortlist. New long-haul flights to the USA are the backbone of our strategy and announcing the new connection to Washington now certainly is not our last word.”

As a Star Alliance member, LOT is able to take advantage of United’s hub in Washington Dulles to offer onward connections to dozens of destinations throughout the U.S and beyond. At the same time, U.S passengers will be able to take advantage of LOT’s vast European network from its home in Warsaw. 

Washington is set to become LOTs sixth destination in the U.S. The Polish carrier currently flies to New York, Miami, and Los Angeles from Warsaw. The airline also flies from Krakow to Chicago, Budapest to New York and Rzezow to New York.
