Polish national airline LOT will fly to more than 100 destinations in Europe this summer and will restore selected North American and Asian connections, the company said in a press release.

Despite increasing the number of flights this summer, the carrier's total capacity will still be at just 50 percent of what it was in 2019.

The airline will focus on the most popular tourist destinations, notably to Greece, which was the most popular country among Polish tourists last year.

"This year we will offer a total of 26 connections to 14 Greek airports," LOT said in the statement released on Thursday.

Other destinations include Cyprus, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Bulgaria, Georgia, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, Lebanon as well as the tourist hotspots of Majorca and Ibiza, the airline added.

In the summer, LOT will also continue to reinstate its regular European connections and will increase the frequency of its trans-Atlantic flights.

As for Asian destinations, LOT will fly to Japan, South Korea and China.
