Polish Airlines (LOT) officially announced in Ha Noi yesterday, August 18, that it would open a non-stop route linking Ha Noi with Warsaw on November 15. It would become the first carrier to fly the route.
LOT will offer the only non-stop commercial flight between Eastern Europe and Viet Nam ten years after an aviation agreement was signed between Poland and Viet Nam.
Vo Huy Cuong, director of the Civil Aviation Administration of Viet Nam (CAAV)’s transportation department, said CAAV had already approved its plans and traffic rights for the non-stop commercial flights to launch in November.
Tran Trung, deputy director of the travel group TransViet, the general sale agent for LOT in Viet Nam, said the airline would start with three flights per week from Ha Noi to Warsaw on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Three flights will run from Warsaw to Ha Noi on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
"We are very glad to become the only carrier connecting Ha Noi with Warsaw on the occasion of your capital’s 1,000th anniversary celebrations," said Krzysztof Kolodziej, chief representative of LOT in Viet Nam.
With many regional destinations to choose from, such as Bangkok, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, Krzysztof said LOT selected Ha Noi because of Poland’s large Vietnamese population and its desire to bring culture, families and tourists from Poland to Viet Nam and vice versa.
"Viet Nam is a charming country and it has great potential to attract European tourists," Krzysztof said.
There is also a significant travel demand from the large number of Vietnamese communities in Europe, such as Germany, France, Russia and others, he added.
LOT will use Boeing B767-300 for its Ha Noi – Warsaw flights. Round trip fares will start at US$380 for economy class and $1,950 for business class, excluding taxes and surcharges.
The carrier was established in 1929 and officially joined the Star Alliance in 2003. It now operates 55 aircraft with 210 flights per day to the EU, North America and the Middle East. Last year, it transported 4 million passengers.
