Following Finnair, LOT Polish Airlines announced its future plans for its Beijing-area presence with its own launch of flights at the new Beijing-Daxing Airport.
Starting October 28, LOT Polish will begin a four-times weekly service between Warsaw and Beijing-Daxing to complement its existing three-times weekly flights to Beijing-Capital. Combined, the airline will serve daily flights to Beijing, with each airport served on alternating days. Both flights will use Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 aircraft.
The Daxing flights (Daxing-Warsaw) will operate every Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays while the Beijing-Capital to Warsaw flights will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
“We have pursued a higher frequency of flights to China for a few years because we see great business potential in this connection. This new infrastructure investment – Beijing-Daxing International Airport – opens new development opportunities for us on one of the biggest and most dynamically growing markets in the world. Thus, as from the end of October, we will increase the number of flights operated between Warsaw and Beijing from three to seven a week. This is not only a great offer for passengers who travel between China and Poland for leisure and on business but also for passengers who start their travel from many Central and Eastern European as well as Western European cities” said Rafał Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines, in a statement announcing the additional flights.
To allow for more connecting options via Warsaw, LOT Polish will be adjusting its flight schedule for the Beijing flights to offer minimum one-hour connections.
