LOT to fly from Warsaw to Singapore
In mid-May, LOT will launch direct flights from Warsaw to Singapore, a key transit point for global travelers, including those headed for destinations such as Australia and New Zealand, Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.
Among other new routes, the airline is preparing to begin operating flights to Oslo in Norway and the Croatian city of Dubrovnik.
New US flights from Budapest
In another expansion drive, the Polish air carrier is scheduled to launch direct flights from the Hungarian capital Budapest to New York and Chicago in May, IAR reported.
