As many as 7 million passengers travelled between Poland and UK in 2017. The schedule will be in favour of business passengers flying to London-City from Warsaw as well as the other cities in the region such as Vilnius, Kiev, Lviv, Riga, Bucharest, Larnaca or Tbilisi. From now on, they will be able to complete their journey within one working day.

In order to operate to London City, LOT has decided to acquire brand 4 new Embraer E-190 jets, which are compatible with the shorter runway at London City. The airplanes were delivered to LOT by the end of 2018 directly from the Embraer factory in Brazil. The new Embraer E-190s have a ​capacity of 106 comfortable seats in three class of travel (business, premium economy and economy class), which gives an efficient combination of optimum range and maximum number of passengers.
