LOT Polish Airlines and the tour operator Rainbow Tours have signed a contract for charter flights from Warsaw to the most popular tourist destinations in the world, among others, to the capital of Thailand, Bangkok. The agreement will ensure the fastest and the most comfortable flights to tourists traveling from Warsaw to such remote parts of the world.
LOT has made a strategic decision on restoring charter flights, which resulted in signing the contract with Rainbow Tours. Starting from November this year, flights will be operated non-stop from Warsaw to Bangkok – once a week, to the capital of Sri Lanka, Colombo, Mexican Cancun and one of the most beautiful resorts in the Carribean – the Cuban Varadero – every other week. Passengers willing to spend their vacation time in these exotic places, will travel on board LOT Dreamliners. People traveling from Warsaw, for the first time, will have the opportunity to cut short the travel time to the minimum and experience non-stop flights to far away lands.
We want to offer the best product we have to our business partners and their clients – said Sebastian Mikosz, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines. I am sure, that there will be many people eager to travel directly to such far away destinations, where the flight time usually is more than a dozen hours.
I am happy that together with our partner for the first time, we can offer for people traveling from Poland so comfortable journey. I also guarantee that passengers will be far less tired when starting or ending their vacation – added Sebastian Mikosz.
In Poland the exotic tourism segment has been growing steadily. For some years now, Rainbow Tours has successfully explored this market segment, however, until now, the main barrier in the fast growth of exotic destinations sales was the exhausting journey which usually involved one or two plane changes en route, which made the whole journey last 16-18 hours. Starting today, it’s going to be different – after a 9-hour flight passengers can disembark in another hemisphere and enjoy the sunshine. We are very excited about our collaboration with LOT and we strongly believe that the relatively short non-stop flight on board the world’s most modern aircraft, will open the exotic destinations for those market segments that have been avoiding this kind of travels so far – said Grzegorz Baszczyński, President of Rainbow Tours.
