The Polish airline LOT will reintroduce direct flights from Warsaw to Zagreb on January 2, the company’s representatives said in Zagreb on Friday.
LOT suspended its Warsaw-Zagreb flight service in early June this year due to so-called compensation measures applied by the Polish airline during the process of its restructuring. Now that the restructuring process has been finished, the company can again re-introduce flight services. As of the beginning of next year, LOT will also reintroduce flights to Belgrade. As of March, its planes will fly to Ljubljana as well, LOT regional manager Jolanta Grala-Bednarcik said at a news conference at the Polish Embassy in Zagreb.
The price of a return ticket from Zagreb to Warsaw will range from EUR 79 to 139, depending on the baggage. By the end of next March, LOT planes will fly to Zagreb four times a week, after which daily flights are planned, notably during the summer season.
LOT is an entirely state-owned company and its privatisation is not planned for now, it was said at the news conference.
