Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) announced Monday that LOT Polish Airlines, the flag carrier of Poland, will begin nonstop service between Warsaw’s Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW) and Dulles International on June 2, 2020, with three flights per week. Passengers on this new route will travel nonstop aboard Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
 
“LOT Polish Airlines is the 18th European carrier to join the Dulles International family, continuing the airport’s legacy of offering unparalleled connectivity from the National Capital Region to Europe and beyond,” said Yil Surehan, vice president of Airline Business Development for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority.

“A direct flight from Warsaw to Washington, D.C., has long been on our shortlist," said Rafal Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines. "New long-haul flights to the USA are the backbone of our strategy, and announcing the new connection to Washington now certainly is not our last word.”

LOT is a member of the Star Alliance, offering connecting customers easy access to many destinations worldwide beyond their Warsaw hub or across the United States via Star Alliance partner United Airlines once they arrive at Dulles International. With the addition of LOT, Dulles International will be served by 18 Star Alliance partner airlines – more than any other United Airlines hub. LOT becomes the first air carrier to serve the National Capital Region with nonstop service to Warsaw.

Monday’s announcement is the latest with new service in 2019 and 2020 from Dulles International, which saw passenger activity increase by more than 5 percent in 2018. Warsaw becomes the 37th global capital city served from Washington Dulles, the leading international airport in the National Capital Region.
