LOT Polish Airlines, the flag carrier of Poland on Friday in a statement announced that it will start direct flight operations between Warsaw and Mumbai from March 29.
“LOT Polish Airlines is pleased to announce the commencement of passenger flights to Mumbai effective 31st May 2022. Furthermore, the Polish flag carrier resumes passenger flights to Delhi effective 29th March 2022” the airline said, adding that it resumes flights to Delhi after a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
According to the airline, India is the world’s seventh-largest economy and the most important Polish commercial partner in South Asia.
Notably, in the midst of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, nations such as Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, and Moldova have assisted ‘Operation Ganga’ in evacuating Indian nationals from the war-torn country.
The restart of flights follows a long-standing demand by the Indian diaspora in Poland.

“We as Indo-Polish Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IPCCI) are extremely glad to see the announcement by Poland to connect Mumbai and Delhi directly. It’s an important step forward by Poland and will give a big boost for trade and tourism between India Poland.”
