POLAND: LOT Polish Airlines Starts Flying To Kaunas And Singapore

LOT Polish Airlines added its latest Asian spoke to its network on 15 May – Singapore (SIN) – with the Star Alliance member now linking its Warsaw Chopin (WAW) hub to the destination three times weekly.

The carrier will operate the 9,408-kilometre route using its 787-8s, with no other airline presently linking the two cities.

We are delighted to welcome LOT Polish’s new service which now connects us to Poland.

This marks Singapore’s first non-stop link to Central and Eastern Europe, and will provide passengers with greater convenience and travel options.

It also presents growth opportunities for leisure and business travel in both regions, commented Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Singapore Airport on the carrier’s launch.

According to the Asian airport, in 2017 traffic between Singapore and the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) region totalled over 258,000 passenger movements.

Along with its flights to Singapore, another route launched by the airline from Chopin this week was Kaunas (KUN) in Lithuania, with LOT becoming the first hub carrier to serve the airport.

Flights on the short 372-kilometre hop will operate six times weekly with no Saturday services and be flown by the carrier’s fleet of Q400s.

Services from the Polish capital city to the Lithuanian city will depart at 22:35, landing into Kaunas at 00:45, resulting in a night-stop at Kaunas.

Return flights to Warsaw then depart the following morning at 06:15, allowing for seamless connections onto morning services from LOT’s hub to destinations throughout Europe, Asia and North America.
