LOT to Start Flights to Ireland

LOT will start flights to Irelan, hugely popular destination among tourists from all over the world as it has lots to offer with its famous Irish folklore.

Commencing from August 23, LOT, Poland’s flag carrier will start scheduled flights on the Warsaw-Dublin route. Connections from Warsaw Chopin Airport to Dublin will be operated four times a week by comfortable Boeing 737-800 NG LOT. Tickets for the new flights are already available on sale.

The capital of the Republic of Ireland – Dublin is joining, today, the group of new directions in the gradually developed, scheduled LOT flight network. Ireland is a hugely popular destination among tourists from all over the world as it has lots to offer with its famous Irish folklore and cliff coasts. The new Warsaw-Dublin connection is also borne with great business potential. In the so-called European Silicon Valley, such well-known technology companies as Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, eBay, and Paypal, as well as pharmaceutical companies have their offices.

Flights from Warsaw Chopin Airport to Dublin will be operated from August 23 this year four times a week, in line with the following schedule:

LO 299 WAW-DUB 2:35pm – 4:35pm Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday

LO 300 DUB-WAW 5:50pm – 9:50 pm Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday

The return of the connection to Dublin reinforced through the #LOTdoDomu operation bringing Poles home. The demand for connections from the capital of Ireland was of such a high rate, that within three weeks the Poland’s flag carrier operated as many as 25 flights for passengers from Dublin to Warsaw. Currently, over 50,000 people of Polish origin live in Dublin alone. According to data for 2019, the number of travellers from/to Poland and Dublin reached even 850,000.

“A direct flight connection with Dublin was an important factor when it comes to the development of the West European LOT flight network. Due to the considerable number of Poles living in Ireland, our presence in this very country was just a matter of time. Today we can offer our compatriots the most convenient way to travel to Dublin directly from the main airport in Warsaw. As part of the gradual restoration of regular routes and the revitalization of air traffic, we are convinced that over time the option of direct flights to the island situated on the Atlantic will also be taken by passengers from other countries of Central and Eastern Europe,” says Rafał Milczarski, LOT’s president.

LOT is gradually restoring regular European destinations to its flight network. Since July 15, passengers are able to travel again to London, Berlin, Prague, Kyiv, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Milan, Geneva, Istanbul, Belgrade, or Tallinn. Cumulatively, in the ongoing summer season, along with the new connection to Ireland, LOT’s offer already includes as many as over 130 connections and over 70 destinations.
