PLL LOT x Krosno Glass Cooperation – Modernity With Respect for Tradition

Warsaw, 22 June 2023 – LOT Polish Airlines announced cooperation with Krosno Glass – a brand whose products adorn interiors around the world. In the coming weeks, the Polish manufacturer’s glass will appear aboard PLL LOT’s long-haul Business and Premium Economy class flights. This cooperation will open an opportunity for Passengers to see the huge importance attached by the national carrier to create a new quality of travel.

LOT, with its 94-year history, is one of the most important symbols of Polish aviation, and the crane symbol is not only a recognisable logo, but above all a promise of comfort and a synonym of the supreme standards. The products created by Krosno Glass are a testimony to LOT keeping this promise.

The Polish carrier has long been looking for glass for its boards – glass being a combination of modern design and elegance. Furthermore, it was extremely important that the new products be sized exactly to the drawers of the catering cart, as well as be durable. Krosno Glass met all the above expectations.

Thanks to this cooperation, Polish design will be presented on global markets. The products will reach over 100 airports in Africa, North America, Asia, and Europe aboard LOT aircraft. This is an excellent showcase of Poland and an inspiration for others to discover the professionalism and innovation that the Polish economy offers.

“The cooperation between Krosno Glass and LOT Polish Airlines, two well-known Polish brands, is something truly unique. Joining the forces of the glass manufacturer with a century-long history and one of the world’s oldest airlines won’t only render it possible to satisfy the expectations of even the most demanding passengers but will also contribute to the promotion of the tradition of Polish design and craftsmanship”, stresses Izabela Leszczynska, Director of the Product Development and Customer Experience Office.

To celebrate the 100th birthday of Krosno Glass, which falls this year, a special glass will appear aboard LOT Polish Airlines, with a design reminiscent of the 1920s – the period when the company was founded. The design is a perfect demonstration of how to combine traditional patterns and modern workmanship and create something truly unique. This isn’t the end of plans for the anniversary celebration. One of LOT Polish Airlines’ Boeing 737 MAX will soon receive a special painting to celebrate the brand’s birthday.

“We make no secret of our joy that glasses designed and manufactured by Krosno Glass will appear aboard LOT Polish Airlines. It’s nice to see how two Polish brands, valued and loved for generations, support each other and promote each other’s activities. This year, our brand celebrates its 100th anniversary, so cooperation with LOT Polish Airlines is undoubtedly a beautiful birthday present”, says Małgorzata Piwowarska-Pinilla, Marketing Director of Krosno Glass.

Krosno Glass is a brand whose history brings timeless design and multi-generational experience of masters in their craft: metallurgical artists, designers, grinders and decorators. It’s their everyday doing that results in the creation of small works of art that adorn interiors around the world. During the 100-year history of the Krosno brand, products have found their way to tables, among others: of Empress of Japan, Arab Sheikhs, Queen Elizabeth II, or the Olympic Games in Munich. The decanter by Krosno has also been in the Sejm of the Republic of Poland for years and is used by the Marshal of the Sejm.
