Polish flag carrier LOT launches operations from Malta International Airport

Malta International Airport today welcomed LOT Polish Airlines, marking the launch of a biweekly scheduled service to the Polish capital during the summer months.

LOT Polish Airlines’ service will further strengthen the Maltese islands’ connectivity with the Polish market, whose ranking among Malta International Airport’s top drivers of traffic has steadily improved over the past years. In fact, the number of passengers travelling to and from Poland increased more than twofold between 2015 and 2019, as Malta International Airport’s Polish route network became more widespread.

“Given that Poland has been one of our top Central European destinations in recent years, it is of great satisfaction to launch a direct route to the capital served by Poland’s very own flag carrier. Following a brief operation last year, we are delighted with LOT Polish Airlines’ decision to return to our islands with a more regular operation, at a time when we are working to restore connectivity lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said MIA’s Head of Traffic Development Mr Alex Cardona.

LOT Polish, whose history spans almost a century making it one of the oldest airlines in operation, will be offering direct flights to Warsaw on Mondays and Thursdays, with this schedule being ideal for holidaymakers who have been eyeing a European city break for their next getaway.

Among the city’s must-see attractions – especially for music and science buffs – are two museums celebrating the lives of remarkable Poles Frédéric Chopin and Marie Curie. Home to around 50 art galleries and museums, whose exhibits are as wonderfully diverse as military artefacts and caricatures, historical buildings which survived the war, and several parks and gardens, Warsaw is surely worthy of a visit this summer.
