[h=1]LOT Polish Airlines aims to double fleet and traffic by 2020[/h]

LOT Polish Airlines announced (22-Jun-2015) its strategic objectives and development plans for the period 2016-2020, with the carrier targeting a doubling its fleet and of passenger traffic to ten million p/a. LOT Polish Airlines plans to base its development on five key elements:

  • Long-haul services: The carrier intends to “develop consistently” its long-haul network. LOT Polish Airlines CEO Sebastian Mikosz said: “This will be a driving force of our growth, which will entail the rest of the network. In the long-haul flights area we have the lowest competition in the region”;
  • Warsaw hub: LOT Polish Airlines will operate as “a hub & spoke carrier, consistently developing its offer of quick and convenient connections via Warsaw”;
  • Growth: LOT intends to carry ten million passengers p/a by 2020, and increase its annual aircraft movements from 68,000 to over 100,000. The carrier is also planning to increase its route network to “around 75-80 destinations” from 49 at present. LOT will target a market share of 30% in Poland and 10% in “New Europe”, in addition to increasing annual revenue to PLN9 billion from less than PLN3.5 billion currently;
  • Value chain: LOT Polish Airlines COO Ewa Kołowiecka said: “We want to cooperate and monitor the entire chain more closely. We expect that our suppliers will develop together with us and also raise the level of quality of their services. Only by doing so we can ensure LOT’s development in passenger services”;
  • Committed team: LOT Polish Airlines director Monika Kiełtyka-Michna said: “We have to continue changing as an organisation – this process is already under way but we need a substantial transformation of our corporate culture. We are determined to build a coherent system of staff development to ensure that LOT will become a modern and dynamically growing airline.”
Mr Mikosz stated: “We have all the assets to become a regional leader. We already have a strong position in relation to other network carriers in New Europe and access to the largest regional market, which will grow intensively. Our Warsaw hub is perfectly located, efficient and is the largest one in this part of Europe. We are successfully ending our restructuring process, historically we are already the main airline flying from this region to North America, and the 86-year history translates into a relatively high brand recognition. These are just a few arguments that back our position.”

A me del network di Lot ha sempre sorpreso la rotta per Beirut. Che traffico poteva mai generare Varsavia da/per il Libano?

LOT riapre Cracovia-Chicago

[Mi scuso se già menzionato altrove]

LO riapre il diretto KRK-ORD da luglio 2017 con un operativo di 1XW, aeromobile 787. Non sono riuscito a trovare il comunicato ufficiale di LOT tuttavia la notizia viene riportata da numerose testate giornalistiche polacche, citando il CEO della compagnia, Rafał Milczarski. LOT torna così ad operare una rotta intercontinentale al di fuori del proprio hub di Varsavia dopo 7 anni circa dalle chiusure di Chicago e Toronto, entrambe operate dallo scalo di Cracovia.

1x week che senso ha? Forse sarà charterizzato
Notevole traffico etnico ma, immagino, poor yields.

Riporto, intanto, un articolo a riguardo da Business Traveller.

LOT Polish Airlines has announced that it will commence direct flights between Krakow and Chicago in July 2017.

The flight will be offered once a week, year-round, in addition to the airline’s daily Krakow-Chicago services which layover in Warsaw.

The route will be operated on one of the Star Alliance carrier’s two new B787 Dreamliners, expected to join the fleet mid-2017.

“Next year, after nearly seven years of absence, flights to Chicago will once again become a part of the Krakow Airport’s destination network,” said Radosław Włoszek, Chairman of the Management Board, Krakow Airport.

“According to our analyses, the interest in this connection is high and continues to rise. Over 90,000 passengers that fly between Krakow and Chicago each year via Warsaw, will be offered a direct flight next year. It’s great news for passengers from southern Poland, the Silesia region and Slovakia.”

In addition to existing routes between Warsaw, Chicago, Toronto and New York JFK, the Krakow-Chicago route will be LOT’s sixth North American route. It will follow new routes set to launch in April between Warsaw, Newark and Los Angeles.

Completo l’aggiornamento LOT di oggi aggiungendo che è atterrato qui a Varsavia il primo 737-800 Max. A quanto pare, andrà inizialmente ad operare la rotazione Varsavia-Londra-Varsavia del mattino/pomeriggio.

Infine e ritornando alle rotte per un momento, sembra che anche MIA sarà presto annunciata.

Poland's LOT receives first 737 Max


Polish flag-carrier LOT has taken delivery of its first Boeing 737 Max, which it has received through US lessor Air Lease.

LOT becomes the first operator in the Central European region to take the re-engined type, and one of the first overall operators in Europe following Max deliveries to budget carrier Norwegian.
The Polish airline has received a Max 8, registered SP-LVA, one of six being delivered to the carrier by Air Lease.

"We are one of the fastest-growing European airlines and I am certain that this big step forward will help us achieve our goals of increasing our operational effectiveness and improving our service," says chief executive Rafal Milczarski.
All 737 Max jets are powered by the CFM International Leap-1B engine.
LOT was one of the initial European customers for the Boeing 787 and the carrier, which has eight 787-8s, is planning to introduce four 787-9s to its fleet by the end of 2019.

Felice di vedere che quello che una volta era un carrozzone statale piano piano si stia espandendo e ritagliando la sua nicchia di mercato! :)

Un po' di tempo fa avevo letto un articolo (su italiavola mi pare) in cui si parlava del nuovo GSA di LOT e della possibilità di due nuovi scali sul terreno italico entro il 2020: TRN e BLQ. Chissà a che sviluppi si andrà avanti...

Ci saranno possibilità di aumenti del presidio italiano secondo te?
Un insider (conosciuto grazie all’equivalente di aviazionecivile.it in Polonia) mi diceva che la Malpensa è un tassello forte del loro network italiano e che non ci sono, tuttora, piani per ulteriore espansione. Da quando i conti sono tornati a sorridere (dopo anni sull’orlo della bancarotta), LOT si sta pian-piano espandendo sull’intercontinentale (vedi LAX, SIN, ICN, PEK) assieme ad una sempre più fitta rete in Europa centrale/orientale, che sfrutta la posizione (ideale) dell’hub di Varsavia (l’altra apertura riguarda TXL e di recente, tra l’altro). Tornando all’Italia, ricorderai senz’altro i tempi in cui LOT operava il volo pomeridiano (16:25) da Roma ed in collaborazione con Alitalia (accordo di code-sharing interrotto nel 2003, se non vado errato). Altri tempi ?
