The Polish national airline has announced its flight schedule for November this year. Compared to last year, the company will operate only to Zagreb, the route to Dubrovnik has been canceled for this year's winter flight schedule.
This summer, LOT Polish Airlines operated on numerous routes from Warsaw and other Polish cities to destinations in Croatia (Zagreb, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, Dubrovnik). Despite the corona crisis, more than 13 new routes have been introduced. Croatia was extremely accessible to Polish tourists by air bridges in this summer season, which is confirmed by the number of Polish tourist in the Republic of Croatia this year.
LOT resumed its operations to Croatia on July 1st, and this summer it operated on a large number of routes compared to the summer flight schedule of the previous year.
In the winter flight schedule that will take effect soon, LOT will keep only one active route to Croatia. Namely, the company plans to operate on the Warsaw - Zagreb route. Four flights a week have been scheduled, every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. E170 aircraft with a capacity of 70 passengers will operate between Warsaw and Zagreb.
Flights on Wed and Fri will operate during the morning, while flights on Mon and Sat will operate during the evening hours.
Although LOT also operated on the Warsaw - Dubrovnik route last winter, this will not happen this year. Due to the impact of the global pandemic and weak demand, the company has temporarily discontinued this route and plans to operate on it from the spring of next year.
LOT plans to operate next summer on all routes on which it operated this summer (only the Warsaw - Rijeka route is questionable), but the decision on the realization of these flights will depend primarily on travel restrictions, as well as demand.
Until the spring of next year, LOT will operate regularly only towards Zagreb, with less weekly flights compared to the last winter season.
