Beginning June 2, LOT Polish Airlines, the flag carrier of Poland, will begin nonstop service between Warsaw’s Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW) and Dulles International Airport (IAD). Passengers on this new route will travel nonstop aboard Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

“LOT Polish Airlines is the 18th European carrier to join the Dulles International family, continuing the airport’s legacy of offering unparalleled connectivity from the National Capital Region to Europe and beyond,” said Yil Surehan, vice president of Airline Business Development for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.

Available for booking now starting at $649, flight will take about 9 hours 40 minutes and provide three classes of available seating: LOT Business Class with lie-flat seats and premium restaurant cuisine; LOT Premium Economy Class with larger, individual space and footrests, comfortable thigh support, cocktail tables and extensive menu; as well as LOT Economy Class with modern seats and individual on-board entertainment screens as well as USB ports.

“A direct flight from Warsaw to Washington, D.C., has long been on our shortlist,” said Rafal Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines. “New long-haul flights to the USA are the backbone of our strategy, and announcing the new connection to Washington now certainly is not our last word.”

LOT is a member of the Star Alliance, offering connecting customers easy access to many destinations worldwide beyond their Warsaw hub or across the United States via Star Alliance partner United Airlines once they arrive at Dulles International. With the addition of LOT, Dulles International will be served by 18 Star Alliance partner airlines – more than any other United Airlines hub. LOT becomes the first air carrier to serve the National Capital Region with nonstop service to Warsaw.
