Warsaw, 5 November 2014 - Higher comfort of flying is appreciated by constantly growing number of LOT’s passengers. The new travel class - LOT Economy Plus - introduced in June has already become very popular and successful.
LOT Economy Plus on short- and medium-haul distances was introduced only a few months ago and it is already appreciated by many passengers among the world. Travellers appreciate the higher comfort, similar to Business Class, at affordable rates. Every month number of passengers traveling in LOT Economy Plus is systematically growing. Over 10 thousand LOT’s clients have already bought the new class tickets.
The new class offers each passenger Business Class privileges, including e.g. a dedicated hotline, Business Class check-in, luggage and boarding priority, and in case the aircraft has no access to the jet bridge in Warsaw, there is a dedicated bus (shared with Business Class passengers). On board, there is a choice of exquisite meals, drinks, including wine and spirits, daily newspapers and a seat in the front of the cabin. In addition, passengers now receive more miles in the frequent flyer programs.
Detailed presentation of LOT Economy Plus is available on LOT’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fS_nOfiIBk
“LOT Economy Plus passengers appreciate especially the possibility of quick boarding and disembarking. In case passengers have only carry-on luggage at the Warsaw Chopin Airport, they can reach a cab in 5 minutes after landing, and in case of checked-in luggage – in 10-15 minutes. Regardless of whether the aircraft stopped at the jet bridge or was served with a dedicated bus”, said Michał Leman, Head of Product Development at LOT Polish Airlines.
The introduction of LOT Economy Plus did not result in fewer Business Class passengers. Passengers of the top class on LOT short- and middle-haul flights can enjoy distinguished service and in-flight meal quality, which have been also recently improved. Further menu modifications are planned in first months of 2015.
“To meet our passengers’ expectations, we are gradually improving the quality of ground and on-board service. We began with our flagship aircraft – Boeing 787 Dreamliner - by introducing e.g. restaurant service in LOT Business Class. Last summer, we changed the on-board service on short- and middle-haul flights. All LOT international flights offer the possibility to travel in higher classes. After the success of LOT Premium Class on-board Dreamliners, the new LOT Economy Plus Class introduced in June on European flights is becoming increasingly popular and more and more passengers choose it. We focus on premium services and we will develop this segment”, adds Michał Leman.
LOT Economy Plus is automatically available for LOT Premium Class passengers traveling on-board Dreamliner on all long haul flights to and from New York, Chicago, Toronto and Beijing.
