What they said

Michał Fijol, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines, said: “As the national carrier, we are aiming to be the first choice and partner for passengers in Poland and the CEE region in terms of exploring new travel offers. Therefore, we are all the more enthusiastic about the opening of the new route to Riyadh. A direct route between Warsaw and the capital of Saudi Arabia creates new opportunities, both for the tourism and business sectors. This testifies to our commitment to expanding LOT Polish Airlines’ international route network. Riyadh is a vibrant hub for culture and commerce, and by making it easily accessible, we are contributing to dynamic exchanges that will deliver mutual benefits for these two regions.”

Through this partnership, we’re not only connecting two cities but also creating a gateway for Polish travellers to explore the unique experiences Saudi Arabia has to offer. The new Warsaw-Riyadh route aligns perfectly with ACP’s goals of expanding air networks with the European market.”
