LOT Polish Airlines revealed that Beijing will be one of the first cities to be served using its new Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

The Warsaw-based carrier will start receiving its Dreamliners later this year, and has now revealed that the first aircraft will go into service on the Warsaw-Chicago route from 16 January 2013. Flights to Toronto come next on 1 February, followed by New York’s JFK airport on 3 February. Beijing flights are scheduled to commence a month later, on 3 March 2013.

“I can say with confidence this is a breakthrough moment for LOT. I am convinced the offer, which we are presenting to our passengers, will be of great interest and the Dreamliner will delight and meet the expectations of each traveler. I am sure our offer of Dreamliner flights is currently the best on the market because it is an ideal combination of an advantageous price with the highest standards of service on the most modern passenger plane in the world,” said LOT’s CEO, Marcin Pirog.

LOT has ordered eight B787-8 Dreamliners and will equip them with three cabin classes – economy, premium economy and business class.
