Rafal Milczarski, CEO, LOT, revealed, “Our decision to launch non-stop flights shows how much we believe in Hungary as one of the key markets in Central and Eastern Europe for LOT.
“We aim to win the hearts of passengers from Hungary and the surrounding countries with the best product on the market, which the non-stop flights definitely are.
For LOT it is also a completely new chapter in its history. For the first time in its 90-year history LOT is launching a connection to North America from outside Poland.”
