CDA welcomes LOT Polish Airlines’ new nonstop service between Chicago and Budapest

CHICAGO, 2017-Jul-10 — /Travel PR News/ — LOT Polish Airlines today (July 7, 2017) announced it will start new nonstop service between Chicago O’Hare International Airport and Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport in May 2018.

LOT will fly from Budapest to Chicago twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The route will be operated all year round and the tickets are already available for purchase. Earlier this week, LOT launched nonstop service between ORD and Krakow.

The last time when it was possible to fly directly from Hungary to the USA was in 2011. Since then, the number of passengers travelling from Budapest to the USA has continued to grow.

According to detailed analyses performed by LOT, direct flights from Budapest will be used not only by residents of the Hungarian capital, but also of other Hungarian cities, eastern Austria, the Slovak Republic, western Romania and Balkan countries. More than eight million inhabitants live within a distance of just two hours’ drive from the Budapest airport.

Flights between Budapest and Chicago will be made exclusively by Boeing 787 Dreamliners. Passengers travelling on Dreamliner’s board can choose from three travel classes: LOT Business Class, LOT Premium Economy and LOT Economy Class.

After the flight connections between Hungary and the USA are launched, LOT will operate a total of eight connections to North America, including seven connections to the USA.

The airline has operated scheduled passenger service from O’Hare since 1985.
