You’ll soon be able to fly direct to Poland from Singapore without a stopover – here’s how

If you’re planning a trip to Poland, you’ll be happy to know that there’ll be a direct way to get there from May next year.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) announced today (Nov 17) that LOT Polish Airlines will launch services between Singapore and Warsaw from May 15, 2018, linking the two countries directly via air travel for the first time.

The carrier, which is new to Changi Airport, will launch thrice weekly services on Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft offered in three-class configurations: Economy, Premium Economy and Business.

This will increase to four times a week from next July, said a CAG statement.

Passengers will be able to make connecting flights to other Polish cities as well as Central and Eastern Europe via LOT’s network of flights from Warsaw Chopin Airport.

CAG’s managing director of air hub development Mr Lim Ching Kiat said: “CAG has been actively growing Changi’s connectivity to Europe, and this new link is a fruit of our collaboration with LOT.”

He said that there has been a rising popularity among Asian travellers to go to countries in Eastern Europe such as Croatia, the Czech Republic and Hungary and the new airline will bring greater convenience and options to them.

“This also opens up more opportunities for both business and leisure travel between the two regions.”

For the first 10 months of this year, more than 3.6 million passengers travelled between Singapore and Europe, a strong year-on-year increase of 7.8%, added CAG.
