LOT discontinues Pristina service

NEWS FLASH


LOT Polish Airlines has no plans to resume its seasonal flights between Warsaw and Pristina this coming summer, the carrier confirmed. Operations between the two cities were inaugurated last year and operated four times per week between June and late September with the 112-seat Embraer E195 aircraft. During 2022, LOT handled 8.205 passengers on the route.

    Like I wrote the other day, only gasto routes can work from PRN. So sad. OS will be happy.

      But this was a gasto route - for connections to the US.

      Yes i think that was the plane, for connections to the US, but they had bad flight connections, so it was still better to fly with OS

      I guess the market to the US isn't that big if they are cutting flights in the summer.

      Would be the same situation when traveling will be organised without visas? Would be the same situation - only gasto routes?

    On the other hand they added extra daily flight to Lju - so now the route has 9x weekly flights

    Pristina with virtually no tourism and business travel, can not survive routes where there is no Albanian diaspora.

      I mean it's not like this route was meant for O&D travel between Pristina and Warsaw

      They need Air Serbia to connect passengers threw Belgrade airport. And to compare with others. In all other situation it would be just travel agency airport.

      1 ATR a day would make a difference?

    That translates to about 61 passengers per flight on average

    With Wizzair based in PRN there will be no need for other airlines.

    This confirms that the traffic in PRN is heavily O&D. Probably very small traffic to North America or transfers via WAW.

      The North America traffic is not so small from PRN, LOT is not a known company in Kosovo and no marketing was done.

    Flights were pretty loaded since they announced the flights pretty late last march. Star Alliance has a big presence in PRN. Still a shame this service is being discontinued.

      They probably just use the A/C for a route with more profitability. They will be back ;)

      The reason is simple. LO has too little long haul planes compared to demand they now have on transatlantic routes. They did not manage to get new dreamliners for the season, so they do not need so many transfer passengers now. Consequently, they cut the lowest yielding among transfer routes. They will be back when they increase transatlantic offering from WAW, so they will need more transfers.
