The first plane from Warsaw landed in Japan’s capital.
LOT’s Dreamliner was welcomed by celebration for passengers at the airport. The just launched Warsaw-Narita service is the first-ever and sole link between Poland and Japan and it provides a greater convenience for both Japanese and European passengers.
For passengers from Poland and the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, the Warsaw – Narita 10-hour flight guarantees the most convenient and most efficient travel on this route.
LOT will operate flights from Warsaw to Tokyo three times a week, on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, and from Tokyo to Warsaw on Thursday, Saturday and Monday in accordance to the following schedule:
WAW – NRT LO079 15:00 – 9:20+1 (local times), NRT – WAW LO080 11:05 – 14:40 (local times)
From the end of March till the end of October (summer schedule):
WAW – NRT LO079 15:20 – 08:45+1 (local times), NRT – WAW LO080 10:15 – 14:25 (local times)
Both outbound and inbound passengers can now benefit from this schedule due to short and convenient connections from dozens of destinations in Europe such as Budapest, Vilnius, Riga, Prague, Budapest, Geneva, Copenhagen, Frankfurt or Paris.
“LOT’s hub in Warsaw is now the best alternative for other crowded and giant European hubs. With nearly 60 destinations in Poland and Europe and minimum connecting time as short as 40 minutes, LOT provides the most convenient offer on the way between Europe and Japan. For example, a journey with LOT from Prague or Budapest takes only 12 hours and 35 minutes – it is the fastest way of getting to Tokyo on the market! We simply try harder!” – says Marcin Celejewski, Acting CEO of LOT Polish Airlines.
LOT decided to open Tokyo Narita as a first long haul destination in past four years. Deep relation between Japan and Poland and the potential growth of mutual trade exchange, made Japan an obvious choice. About 300 Japanese companies invest in Poland.
Operated by LOT Polish Airlines, the flight from Warsaw to Tokyo is performed by means of the most advanced plane in the world, Boeing 787 Dreamliner in the configuration of three travel classes – LOT Economy, LOT Premium and LOT Business Class.
