The hour-long flights will feature Bombardier Q 400 aircraft, which will fly between the two cities six times per week: departing from Košice at 5:35 and from Warsaw at 22:35, the TASR newswire reported.

Passengers will be able to continue from Warsaw to other destinations in Europe, the US, China and Japan. Transfers to and from connecting flights will be about 30 minutes or possibly slightly longer, said Jolanta Grala Bednárčik, LOT’s head for the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the Balkans. She stressed that it is not the only area in where the potential of the new connection lies.

“Poland is a big country that offers many opportunities for both business and leisure,” Grala Bednárčik added, as quoted by TASR.

Košice Mayor Richard Raši rejoiced at the arrival of Poland’s flag carrier.

“I hope that many Polish tourists will discover our beautiful city and the surrounding region thanks to the Warsaw-Košice flight connection,” Raši said, as quoted by TASR.
