LOT Polish Airlines is adding three new routes to its flight schedule to Greece this summer, offering new connections to Thessaloniki, Heraklion and Rhodes from Poland, the Greek Tourism Ministry said on Friday.
The announcement follows an agreement made between Greek Tourism Minister Harry Theoharis and representatives of LOT that sees the carrier expanding its flight schedule to Greece for 2021.
The Warsaw-based Star Alliance airline this summer will connect Poznan with Thessaloniki; Katowice with Heraklion (Crete); and Gdansk with Rhodes.
“These are routes that will be added to LOT’s expanded program for Greece, which is more enhanced than that of 2019,” Theoharis said, underlining that the agreement with the airline will contribute to boosting tourist arrivals to Greece this summer.
