Later this year, a new destination will join LOT’s gradually recovered flight network. From 19 September, Boeing 737-800s and 787 Dreamliners will operate non-stop flights from Warsaw to Dubai (DXB) three times a week. Tickets are already on sale.
In September this year, LOT for the first time since 1990’s will inaugurate the connection to the United Arab Emirates. The flights will be available until the end of March 2022. LOT aircraft will take off from the Chopin Airport three times a week, to land at Dubai’s largest airport – Dubai International Airport (DXB). The flight will last approx. 6 hours and will be operated according to the following timetable:
LO121 WAW-DXB 7:40 – 15:25 / Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday
LO122 DXB-WAW 17:15 – 21:35 / Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday
“Within recent years, Dubai has been becoming one of the Poles’ favorite winter exotic destinations. Before the pandemic, in 2019 alone, almost 100 thou. people had travelled from Poland to Dubai. The potential for connection, also in the chartered segment, means that, in addition to the offer of carriers from the Gulf, we can see an opportunity for development for LOT. I am convinced that passengers will appreciate the Polish product, the schedule which is perfectly suited to both visitors to the EXPO exhibition and tourists, as well as attractive price offer”, says Michał Fijoł, Chief Commercial Officer at LOT.
Flights will be operated by 168-seat Boeing 737-800NG aircraft, equipped with a configured, separate Business Class of 12 seats. If required, 787-8 Dreamliners may also handle the connection. Notwithstanding the flight class, LOT will offer its passengers two services, as well as an extensive offer of drinks and alcohols.
“This year, in line with the announcements and forecasts for the recovery of passenger traffic, we are constantly focusing on the development of the tourist offer. Dubai, in addition to Sri Lanka, is another offer for our passengers launched with a view to relax in warm countries during the cold winter months in Poland. Thus, due to the reversed seasonality of traffic, this connection will allow us for exploiting operational resources in the so-called low season. We have made sure that our on-board product was to be offered at the highest level, with the full sanitary regime in force during the pandemic taken into account”, adds Michał Fijoł.
