LOT POLISH Airlines, the flag carrier of Poland and the first in Europe to operate a fleet of the latest generation-the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (in both 800 and 900 configuration), commenced operations to BIA on 4th, November, 2019. 

Since 2003, LOT has been a member of Star Alliance which is the largest airlines alliance in the world. 

LOT is a new carrier to introduce a direct connection from Warsaw to Colombo and back. At the beginning, LOT Polish airlines will fly to Colombo three times a week.

LOT Polish Airlines is a modern, European carrier bringing connectivity to Central and Eastern Europe regions with over 110 destinations in the world including Europe, North America and Asia. High quality of services and professionalism of passenger services have been honored a number of times with the award for the best airline in Central and Eastern Europe. LOT offers the best product at the most attractive price with wonderful connections from CMB to key cities in Central and Eastern Europe and North America. Poland is a modern, innovative, robust EU economy with unique history & cultural heritage which rank the country as a very interesting country both business and leisurewise.

Annually, more than 1.8 million passengers travel between Europe and Colombo. This connectivity will enable passengers from all of the cities in Poland, Western Europe, Baltic States served by LOT, as well as from Prague, Zagreb or Budapest to experience a short travel time to Colombo with a convenient transfer via Warsaw Chopin Airport.

“All of us at LOT Polish Airlines are excited to join our local partners in celebrating the touchdown of our very first direct flight to Colombo. Given Sri Lanka’s rising prominence as a must-visit destination in Asia, we are confident the improved connectivity enabled by LOT’s 3 weekly flights will help increase tourist arrivals, whilst providing globetrotting Sri Lankans with a convenient and comfortable option for travelling to Poland, Central Europe or any other destinations we fly to,” LOT Polish Airlines Chief Commercial Officer, Michał Fijoł said.

The Airline offers their passengers the joy of a flight experience in a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner who wish to travel with them.
