NEW YORK, N.Y. – JetBlue Airways and LOT Polish Airlines, Poland’s flag carrier, are proud to announce today a new interline partnership which will allow their customers to seamlessly book connections through JetBlue’s home at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and LOT’s hub at Warsaw’s Chopin Airport.
The new agreement offers travellers many new connections between JetBlue’s network in North America and LOT’s network throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Now, travellers can book reservations on JetBlue and LOT via their travel professional or via LOT’s call center or website.
LOT offers nonstop service from New York to its hub in Warsaw, where customers can connect to more than 45 destinations across Poland, Europe and the Middle East. Some of the most popular destinations include Bucharest, Budapest, Belgrade, Kiev, Lviv, Odessa, Riga, Saint Petersburg, Sofia, Tallinn and Vilnius.
In New York, JetBlue offers easy connections between LOT-operated transatlantic flights and many cities along the East Coast including Buffalo; Charlotte and Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina; New York; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; as well as many cities in Florida
LOT is one of Poland’s most recognized brands, known for its constant reinvention and great customer service. Over the past year, the airline has redesigned its livery, updated its cabin crew uniform and made multiple enhancements to both its inflight and ground product. Further, it recently completed an order of up to eight Boeing 787 Dreamliners, making it the first global network carrier in Europe to operate the commercial jetliner. LOT will take delivery of the first two Boeing 787 Dreamliners in 2012.
“We are looking forward to establishing cooperation with JetBlue. LOT has been present in the American market for many years which, from our perspective, offers great development potential,” said Marcin Pirog, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines. “Thanks to the agreement with our new partner JetBlue, we are able to offer our passengers a broader choice of connections at the highest standard of service.”
JetBlue and LOT Polish Airlines have a lot in common,” said Scott Laurence, JetBlue’s vice president of network planning and partnerships. “The outstanding customer service and revitalized brands continue to surprise customers all over the world and will most definitely do so for LOT and JetBlue connecting customers as they expand their reach into Europe and the Americas.”
