LOT Polish Airlines to Consolidate Warsaw -New York services at Terminal 1 in JFK
On September, 01, LOT Polish Airlines will move its operations at JFK from Terminal 4 to Terminal 1. LOT will also transfer all Newark flights to JFK airport from 29 October.
This move allows LOT to operate a larger number of flights offered from JFK and to provide a more consistent and attractive schedule for our New York passengers, particularly those in the business community
These changes lead to improved service to passengers travelling to and from New York but also for connecting traffic from LOT flights to over 80 cities within the United States which are operated by our US partners,. LOT recently announced a new partnership with JetBlue at JFK.
Passengers already booked on suspended Newark services will be offered a departure from JFK or a full refund of their tickets and will be notified by their travel agent or directly by LOT.
LOT’s analysis shows that JFK has greater traffic potential than Newark and better supports LOT’s mid- and long-term network strategy.
Terminal 1 at JFK, which is used by the world's largest airlines, including many Star Alliance partners ensures a top level of service to LOT passengers.
The changes in New York are an important part of the preparations to launch LOT’s service on Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft in January 2013.
“We believe that the consolidation of our flights from New York, and terminal changes at JFK will provide better service to our existing and future passengers, particularly in light of our new partnership with JetBlue”, said Marcin Pirog, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines.
