LOT to launch direct Budapest-Seoul flight

Polish airline LOT will launch direct flights from Budapest to Seoul three times a week starting September 22, CEO Rafal Milczarski announced in Budapest on Wednesday.

Flights will depart on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays on Boeing 787 Dreamliners, he added.

LOT also announced four other new destinations available from the Hungarian capital. The carrier will operate two flights a day to Prague and Stuttgart. Daily flights will also be available to Sofia and Belgrade.

LOT postponed the launch of flights to Brussels and Bucharest from September to March 2020 due to problems related to the Boeing 737 MAX jets.

The Polish carrier also announced that its Budapest-New York flights will be reduced from four to three a week, and that the direct flight between Budapest and Chicago will only be available in the summer.
