Delhi, 12 September 2019
Polish National Airline LOT will be the first carrier from Central and Eastern Europe to connect India with so many European cities, connecting the home town airports of Star Alliance member carriers: LOT Polish Airlines and Air India. The new route launch features excellent onward connectivity via Warsaw

CEO of LOT Airlines Mr. Rafat Milczarski met the President of Indian Economic Trade Organization Dr. Asif Iqbal at the launch of direct flights from New Delhi to Warsaw.

The forum saw the presence of 18 polish companies that came on the new dreamliner LOT airline participating in the forum for looking at business development between the two countries.


There is a huge potential of air travels — almost 9.5 (million) passengers traveled between India and Europe and 3.3 (million) between Delhi and Europe during the last 12 months. Our convenient schedule, including an overnight eastbound flight, a comfortable on-board product and seamless connectivity via Warsaw, will certainly increase the flow of business and leisure travelers coming to and from India,” said Rafat Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines.

Delhi was chosen not without reason as the next LOT destination in Asia. After Singapore, India is the second-largest direct investment market in Asia for Polish businesses. For India, Poland is an important investment market i.e. in the IT sector and a gateway to all countries within the European Union. The new LOT flight is a key element in strengthening economic ties and developing business relations between the two countries. Poland is one of the best performing European economies, the largest in Central and Eastern Europe. Since its transformation in the early 1990s, it is on the path of continuous and dynamic growth. Poland was the only European country that avoided recession during GFC. With a population of 38.5 million citizens, Poland is very well known for its hospitality, developed infrastructure, as well as safety and security.

By the end of 2019, additional B787 Dreamliner will join the fleet, increasing the total number of LOT wide-body aircraft to 15.
