LOT Polish Airlines will start a Miami-Warsaw non-stop passenger service scheduled for 1 June, 2019 giving Miami International Airport (MIA) the only route between Florida and Eastern Europe and MIA’s first-ever service to Poland.
The Warsaw Chopin Airport service will further expand MIA’s current network of 20 European destinations, while Miami will join LOT’s five other non-stop destinations in North America.
LOT will operate four weekly flights with new generation B787-8 Dreamliner aircraft that seat 252 passengers.
LOT chief executive officer, Rafał Milczarski said Miami is one of the largest markets in the US so far not served by LOT.
He added: “It is the first such convenient connection between Central and Eastern Europe and Florida with almost half a million passengers per year travelling between the two regions.
“Thanks to our broad network of connections and the most convenient transfers offered via hub in Warsaw, I am sure that many passengers from Miami will take advantage of our latest offer and fly on our board to Budapest, Prague, Kiev or Tel-Aviv.”
LOT is one of the fastest-growing airlines in Europe today and carried seven million passengers last year on its fleet of 73 aircraft.
“We eagerly look forward to welcoming LOT Polish Airlines’ Warsaw service next summer,” said Miami-Dade aviation director, Lester Sola. “We are proud to be their first destination in Florida and to be part of their ongoing expansion into North America.”
