In 2020, LOT Polish Airlines will continue to develop Budapest as its second hub in addition to its home base Warsaw. In summer, the airline will add Dubrovnik in Croatia and Varna on the Bulgarian coast of the Black Sea to its flight schedule from Budapest. In addition, LOT Polish will also increase its weekly services from Budapest to Seoul from currently three to four flights per week.
The new flights to Dubrovnik and Varna are offered on Sundays and will be launched the 7th June 2020. Both will be operated with modern Embraer 195 aircraft.
Starting on 6th May 2020, LOT Polish will increase its service from Budapest to Seoul. The route was just launched in September 2019 and reached immediately an average load factor of 85 percent.

“We are consequently establishing Budapest as our second big hub. In summer 2020 we will offer flights from Budapest to 13 different destinations such as Warsaw, London, Brussels, Prague and Stuttgart as well as to New York (JFK) and to Seoul. Also, we have recently opened the first Star Alliance Gold business lounge at Budapest Airport so that our guests can relax or work before taking off,” Michal Fijol, Chief Commercial Officer, LOT Polish Airlines, said.
