Today the Polish airline, LOT, began operating flights on the route Lviv-Bydgoszcz-Lviv route on 4 August, the CFTS reports.

The flight from Lviv departed at 02:18 (01:40 according to the timetable) and arrived in Bydgoszcz at 02:30 (02:20). The flight from Poland departed at 03:20 and landed in Lviv at 05:20. The flights will be operated on Mondays and Fridays.

"LOT launches flights only on routes where it sees a great potential for our business and the new route from Bydgoszcz to Lviv is the best example of this. Tickets for the first flight from the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship to Ukraine are sold out. Tickets for other flights are also practically sold out. This confirms that LOT’s offer is the currently best for many Ukrainians traveling to this region of Poland, as well as for many residents of the region who decide to travel to Lviv," LOT’s spokesman Adrian Kubicki said.

According to the Rynek Lotniczy publication, Bombardier Dash Q400 aircraft with a capacity of 78 seats will be operated on the Lviv-Bydgoszcz-Lviv route. LOT has 10 of these aircraft, which were previously operated by Eurolot, LOT’s subsidiary low-cost airline.

Earlier, LOT flew to Lviv from Warsaw. The carrier launched Poznan-Lviv flights in June this year. Flights on this route are operated twice a week, and but the number of flights will increase to three per week from October.

Another Polish airline, SprintAir, also flies to Lviv. This airline operates flights on the Radom-Lviv-Radom route on Thursdays and Sundays.
