LOT Cargo has launched a New York – Warsaw – New York freight route with an all-cargo B767-300 aircraft operated by Cargojet Airways.
This year, flights are scheduled for January-April and October-December. For January and March, the company has planned weekly flights departing from New York (JFK) on Saturdays and from Warsaw on Sundays. For February, two flights per week have been scheduled with an additional flight from Warsaw on Thursdays.
The offer is designed for clients and agencies from not only Poland, but also neighbouring countries, such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Belarus and Lithuania, as well as Switzerland, Denmark, Romania and Italy – a frequent source of streams of goods.
Together with its partners, LOT Cargo offers also further connections to all US and Canadian airports.
LOT decided to use a freight aircraft due to a limited number of passenger flights in the winter season, especially in February, resulting in limited air cargo and mail possibilities.
