“Due to the current pandemic situation in the world and the lockdown of borders of many countries, the board of PLL LOT has decided to cancel all its international air connections until June 14, 2020,” the airline announced on social media.

After the outbreak of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, still in February, LOT suspended its connections to China. Then, the airline systematically limited its flights to other countries. On March 10, LOT announced it had cancelled all its connections from Poland and Hungary.

Five days later, the Polish national carrier began the operation “Flight back come” aimed to bring Poles from abroad to their homeland. More than 55,000 people took part in it.

On Monday, LOT reported that from June 1, it would restore some of its domestic flights. Passengers will be able to fly on some of Poland’s busiest routes again, including from Warsaw to the major cities such as Gdańsk, Kraków and Poznań.

All in all, there will be about 30 flights a day, flying at a schedule developed to best suit the needs of people flying on business trips as well as regular tourists.
