Star Alliance member LOT Polish Airlines has signed an interline agreement with US carrier JetBlue Airways. Thanks to this new partnership, passengers travelling with LOT Polish Airlines from Warsaw to the United States can now fly on to more than 100 destinations from the JetBlue Airways network.
“We are excited about this new interline agreement with JetBlue Airways, as it allows us to offer our passengers much more flight options in North America,” explains Michal Fijol, Chief Commercial Officer at LOT Polish Airlines. “They can book through-fares to their final destination; they also only need one ticket, and they can, of course, check through their baggage to their final destination.”
From its global hub at the Polish capital Warsaw, LOT Polish Airlines currently flies up to 35 times a week to big US cities such as New York (Newark and JFK airports), Miami, Chicago and Los Angeles. The airline also plans to resume its US flights from Budapest by summer 2023. Thru JetBlue Airways, LOT passengers can now seamlessly reach many other popular destinations in the US such as Boston, Las Vegas, Orlando, San Francisco and Seattle, as well as in Latin America, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
Michal Fijol: “We have been flying from Warsaw to the United States for 50 years and see a continuously high demand from Poland as well as from numerous other European countries and now even from India for these services. In addition to tourists, many business travellers book our flights to the US, as well as a large number of people who want to visit their families or friends on the other side of the Atlantic.”
