Polish flag carrier to operate from Malta

We have airline-related news! Malta International Airport welcomed LOT Polish Airlines yesterday, who will be launching a scheduled service to the Polish capital of Warsaw during the summer months.

According to MIA, “LOT Polish Airlines’ service will further strengthen the Maltese Islands’ connectivity with the Polish market, whose ranking among Malta International Airport’s top drivers of traffic has steadily improved over the past years.” In fact, between 2015 and 2019, the number of travellers flying to and from Poland has more than doubled, as the local airport’s Polish route network expanded over the last few years.

MIA’s head of traffic development Alex Cardona said: “given that Poland has been one of our top Central European destinations in recent years, it is of great satisfaction to launch a direct route to the capital served by Poland’s very own flag carrier. Following a brief operation last year, we are delighted with LOT Polish Airlines’ decision to return to our islands with a more regular operation, at a time when we are working to restore connectivity lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Never heard of LOT Polish? Well, funny you should say that because it was established way back in December 1928 and is one of the world’s oldest airlines in operation. The airline flies to over 120 destinations across Europe, Asia and North America.

Will you be hopping on one of their flights?
