Outbound flights from Košice are scheduled regularly for 5:35, with inbound flights from Warsaw at 22:35, according to the timetable.

The regular connection to Warsaw will provide vast travel opportunities for passengers coming from Košice, with the Chopin Airport in Warsaw offering further connections to other destinations in Poland and elsewhere in Europe, North America and Asia, the TASR newswire reported.

The morning LOT flights will allow passengers to transfer in Warsaw to other morning flights within Europe, for example to Stockholm, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels, Duesseldorf and many other cities, said LOT communications director Adrian Kubicki.

“We believe that LOT has a high potential to become the first choice for passengers beginning their journeys in Košice,” said Kubicki, as quoted by TASR.

LOT uses the Bombardier turbo propeller aircraft on the Warsaw-Košice route, with three travel classes available. The flight should take around one hour, with layovers for flights to some destinations being as short as 30 minutes.

The Polish airline provides connections to more than 60 destinations worldwide. Košice is one of the first new destinations opened by LOT after completing its restructuring process. They further include Luxembourg, Ljubljana, Athens, Beirut and Nice.

LOT’s arrival should significantly improve the accessibility of not only Košice, but all of eastern Slovakia. No other Slovak airport is being served by as many as three standard carriers providing further networks of international connections from their hubs, noted Košice airport marketing manager Juraj Tóth, as reported by TASR. The other two standard carriers serving Košice are Czech Airlines and Austrian Airlines, apart from Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air.
