Miami-Warsaw flight plan gives MIA a LOT to celebrate

LOT Polish Airlines schedules Florida launch for June 2019

LOT Polish Airlines announced today the launch of Miami-Warsaw nonstop passenger service scheduled for June 1, 2019, giving Miami International Airport (MIA) the only nonstop route between Florida and Eastern Europe, as well as the airport’s first-ever service to Poland. Warsaw will further expand MIA’s current network of 20 European destinations, while Miami will join LOT’s five other nonstop destinations in North America.

LOT Polish Airlines is an exciting addition to MIA’s growing roster of international carriers. This new connection to Eastern Europe will go a long way toward expanding MIA’s role as a true global gateway.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez

LOT will operate four weekly flights with new generation B787-8 Dreamliner aircraft that seat 252 passengers. LOT’s hub operation at Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW) provides passengers more than 350 daily flights to 100 destinations worldwide, as well as extensive connections throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

Miami is currently one of the largest markets in the U.S so far not served by LOT. 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 CEO Rafał Milczarski

LOT, which launched operations in 1928, is considered one of the fastest-growing airlines in Europe today, with seven million passengers onboard each year. LOT's fleet of 73 aircraft is also one of the youngest and most modern in Europe.

We eagerly look forward to welcoming LOT Polish Airlines’ Warsaw service next summer. We are proud to be their first destination in Florida and to be part of their ongoing expansion into North America.
