LOT Polish Airlines has announced that it will begin a new service between Warsaw and New Delhi in September 2019. The route will be operated five times a week by Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

The long-awaited flight between Poland and India is becoming a fact. I am pleased to announce that this magnificent destination is being added to LOT’s growing network today. This is a great moment in our 90-year history […]. Poland, located in the very heart of Europe will be a gateway for passengers travelling to New Delhi from many cities in Central, Eastern and Western Europe. The potential for this flight is huge – over 8.9 million passengers travelled between India and Europe in 2017. Rafał Milczarski, CEO of LOT

By the end of this year, four more Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft will be included in the fleet. At the moment, LOT has eleven Boeing 787s (both 787-8 and 787-9) in its fleet. Each 787 Dreamliner aircraft features three travel classes.

Furthermore, deliveries of nine additional Boeing 737 MAX airplanes are scheduled for this year. Five 737 MAX 8 aircraft are already part of the airline’s fleet.

The Star Alliance member is based in Warsaw and was founded on 29 December 1928. The flag carrier of Poland celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, as one of the world’s oldest airlines still in operation.
