TAV AND LOT POLISH AIRLINES ANNOUNCE: NEW ROUTE WARSAW – SKOPJE AS OF JUNE 2018

Starting from 1 June, LOT Polish Airlines is going to launch the first direct connection from Warsaw to Skopje, announces TAV Macedonia together with LOT Polish Airlines.

Flights on this route will be operated daily, 6 times a week, apart from Sundays, by modern Embraer jets. Tickets are already availabe on sale, via LOT’s Contact Centre, at www.lot.com, and from sales agents.

LOT Embaers will take off from Warsaw Chopin Airport at 10:35 to land in Macedonia at 12:40 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Return flight will take passengers to Warsaw at 13:20. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays  the flight from Warsaw is scheduled to depart at 14:25 and landing in Skopje at 16:30. Departure from Skopje is planned at 17:10 to land in Warsaw at 19:15.

The flights to Macedonia will be operated by Embraer 170 and 175. Depending on the version of the aircraft there will be 70 - 82 seats available in three travel classes: economy, premium economy and business.

Skopje in Macedonia is a completely new destination offered by LOT. That country has been increasingly popular every year among tourists, enchanting them with its history, regional cuisine and cultural diversity. Our passengers just gained an opportunity to get to know different tourist values of that amazing country. I am certain that many passengers will take advantage of it this summer. On the other hand, we decided to provide passengers flying from Macedonia with the most convenient travels to Western Europe, Skandinavia or our ports in the U.S. I am sure that our new offer will meet expectations of those travelling in business or leisure,” says Adrian Kubicki, Director of Corporate Communications and LOT’s Spokesperson.

Timetables were designed in such way that also the passengers travelling from Skopje have access to fast and convenient connecting flights from the Warsaw Chopin Airport to among others, destinations in the United States of America (JFK or Newark, Los Angeles, Chicago), Canada (Toronto) and Western Europe, e.g. Scandinavia. LOT transfers via hub in Warsaw are starting just from 80 minutes time for flights i.e to JFK, Chicago or LA.

It is our pleasure and priviledge to announce Warsaw as a new destination from Skopje, a route that has never been served so far from the Macedonian capital. We are expecting this air connection, that will be served 6 times a week during summer season, to be a great success. It will enable Polish travelers to visit and discover Macedonia, as well as the citizens of Macedonia and the neighboruing countries to be able to travel to Warsaw directly and experience Poland. This route will also serve both countries to enhance the business relations, to enable better connections with Eastern Europe, as well as transatlantic flights to many destinations in the world that Warsaw offers’’ stated Alper Ersoy, TAV Macedonia General Manager.

In total LOT now operates flights to 12 destinations in the Balkans. Apart from Skopje and Podgorica, in the summer season the airlines also fly to: Dubrovnik (a new connection starting from May - six flights per week), Zagreb (the increase from 10 to 14 flights per week), Split (two flights per week), Pula (one flight per week), Zadar (two flights per week), Belgrade (the increase from 9 to 11 flights per week), Ljubljana (the increase from six to seven flights per week), Sofia (19 flights per week), Bucharest (three flights per day) and Cluj-Napoca (six flights per week).

This year LOT has already announced the launch of four new destinations: from Warsaw to Skopje, Podgorica and Moscow Domodedovo Airport (the second largest airport in Moscow) and from Kraków to Budapest.

In 2017 LOT announced the launch of 27 connections, including from Warsaw to: Los Angeles, Newark, Astana and Singapore, from Budapest to New York City and Chicago, from Kraków to Chicago and from Rzeszów to Newark. In 2017 LOT’s passenger traffic totaled 6.8m which means that the figure went up by nearly 1.5m year-to-year. During that time four new Boeings were delivered to LOT: two B787 Dreamliners and two B737 MAXs. 12 more machines will be added to LOT’s fleet in 2018: three B787-9s (a larger version of the Dreamliner), three B737 MAX 8s and six EMBRAER 195s.
