SINGAPORE, 17 November 2017 – Changi Airport Group today welcomed the announcement by LOT Polish Airlines of its intention to launch services between Singapore and Warsaw (Poland) on 15 May 2018.
LOT Polish Airlines, a new airline to Changi Airport, will launch 3x weekly services, which will increase to 4x weekly from July 2018. It will use a 252-seat B787-8 aircraft in a three-class configuration offering economy, premium economy and business cabins. This translates to 1,008 one-way weekly seats.
With this new service, Singapore is now linked to Poland directly for the first time. Passengers will also have onward connections to other Polish cities as well as Central and Eastern Europe via LOT’s strong network from Warsaw Chopin Airport. This is also the Polish carrier’s new air link to Southeast Asia, with LOT’s passengers able to access 47 city links in Southeast Asia and Southwest Pacific from Changi Airport.
Changi Airport Group’s (CAG) Managing Director of Air Hub Development, Mr Lim Ching Kiat said, “We are delighted to welcome LOT’s new service to Warsaw. CAG has been actively growing Changi’s connectivity to Europe, and this new link is a fruit of our collaboration with LOT. Countries in Eastern Europe like Croatia, the Czech Republic and Hungary are becoming more popular with Asian travellers and LOT’s new service from Singapore will bring greater convenience and new options to our passengers to reach these countries. This also opens up more opportunities for both business and leisure travel between the two regions.”
CEO of LOT Polish Airlines, Mr Rafal Milczarski, said “We are more than happy to announce a new direct service between Singapore, one of the most developed business centres in the world and a travel mecca for many tourists, and Warsaw placed in the very heart of Central and Eastern Europe. We are certain that thanks to the new connection, many Poles and other passengers from our region will use the opportunity of convenient travels to Southeast Asia. On the other hand, we do believe that the new direct connection will be an incentive for residents of Singapore who would like to take the advantage to visit Poland and get to know us better. Our offer will also appeal to all passengers travelling either for business or leisure who appreciate the comfort and the top quality product offered on board the most modern state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliners.”

|Time Period||Days of Operation||Flight No.||Route||Scheduled Departure
