LOT Polish Airlines are adding another route to London City Airport – on the back of their Warsaw route launch. This time, Budapest will get a service a direct service to the heart of London.
Let’s look at the new service, which is starting on 19th Februaey 2019:
DEPART LCY 09:15 ARRIVE BUD 12:45 - Operates Mondays to Saturdays DEPART LCY 19:30 ARRIVE BUD 23:00 - Operates Mondays to Fridays and Sundays DEPART BUD 07:00 ARRIVE LCY 08:45 - Operates Mondays to Saturdays DEPART BUD 17:15 ARRIVE LCY 19:00 - Operates Mondays to Fridays and Sundays Commences: 19th February 2019 Booked Equipment: Embraer E-190 Data: London City Airport
It seems that LOT has found more uses for the four Embraer E-190s it hired as part of the Warsaw – London City Airport service.
This timetable should be rather business friendly from Budapest – allowing to skip overnight stays. From London City, it will allow for an afternoon meeting – but you might want to book an overnight ticket anyway and see the sights.
On the launch of the route, Rafał Milczarski, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines states::
“Being a modern and most dynamically growing airline in Europe, we are very proud we are able to fast-track our development in Hungary. We have opened a new chapter in our history: after the launch of the flights to New York City, Chicago, Kraków, the two daily flights to London City are now added. The annual passenger traffic on the Budapest-London route approximates 1.4 million. London City Airport is the most conveniently located airport for those passengers who want to reach central London, including its business districts, in the shortest and most convenient way. I am certain that Hungarian passengers will appreciate the new connection thanks to the elevated quality of services.“
Connectivity at Budapest will allow you to connect a New York, Chicago and Kraków. Further options are available if you choose the Warsaw route.
Ticketing for the route has opened for those who need it.
I’ve stated in the previous article why I like City Airport in connectivity terms, and the same applies here. Whilst there is limited onward connectivity from Budapest, it might provide some interesting opportunities on the way.
Editors note. Guess the song in the title.
