LOT Polish Airways has announced that it will use one of its biggest aircraft, a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, on one of its last flights to the UK before a flight ban kicks in at midnight on Monday.
While airlines worldwide seek novel ways to protect their bottom lines in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic that has grounded virtually all passenger flights, LOT hopes the switch to cargo will cut its losses.
A Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner ordered by Poland's national carrier LOT Polish Airlines landed in Warsaw on Friday morning after a nine-hour-and-50-minute direct flight from the factory of the US producer Boeing in Charleston, North Carolina.
Polish flag carrier PLL LOT will be equipped with fifteen new airplanes next year, the Chief Commercial Officer of LOT Michał Fijoł has announced.
LOT Polish Airlines wants to employ 300 new pilots by the end of this year, said PLL LOT CEO Rafał Milczarski.
