Poland's flag carrier, PLL LOT, has brought more than 34,000 Poles to their home country under the government-subsidised scheme 'LOT do Domu' (Flight Home) that started on March 15, the airline said in a news release on Wednesday.

Forty-four Boeing 787 Dreamliners, Boeing 737-800s and Embraers made a total of 252 flights within the mass repatriation programme spanning across the world.

Coach carrier Polonus and rail carrier PKP Intercity have also joined the 'LOT do Domu programme,' with additional trains and coaches taking returning passengers from Warsaw Chopin Airport to their places of living at no additional cost.

All Poles returning home are told to undergo a mandatory 14-day home quarantine.
