Ostrava Airport renews air connection with Warsaw15. 2. 2022
On Monday 28 March, the line between Ostrava and Warsaw returns to its route. LOT Polish Airlines will operate the route 5 times a week, connecting the Moravian-Silesian region with the whole of Europe and destinations in North America and Asia with one convenient change in Warsaw.
The service to the Polish capital was originally launched on 25 October 2020, but at the end of March the following year, due to the coronavirus crisis and subsequent travel restrictions, its operation was suspended.
The route will be served by Bombardier Q400 and Embraer 170/175 aircraft with a capacity of 70 to 82 seats in three travel classes.
"The flight schedule on the route is set to allow passengers to comfortably reach their final destination with one change. This makes places like Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Paris, Moscow and many other European cities easily accessible. With a convenient time change, passengers can also fly to New York, Chicago, Toronto or Seoul in South Korea," said Stanislav Bujnovský, Commercial Director of Ostrava Airport, a.s.
"I am very happy that we have managed to resume regular flights to Warsaw, which were interrupted due to Covid-19. We need a regular air connection with a major international transport hub to improve the region's transport accessibility. This is the only way to retain today's investors and attract new ones. For executives, business people, scientists, athletes, and tourists, we simply need a regular air link to a destination that can be reached around the world. Warsaw is undoubtedly such a place, and with the planned development of the new airport its importance will grow even more. Thanks to the connection with the Warsaw hub, passengers from Ostrava will have access to more than 80 destinations," said Radek Podstawka, Deputy Governor for Transport of the Moravian-Silesian Region.
