Direct flights to New York and Chicago from Budapest
Posted by Mia Balogh · Jul 21, 2017

LOT Polish Airlines will launch direct flights from Budapest to New York and Chicago next May.

The last time when it was possible to fly directly from Hungary to the USA was six years ago, in 2011. Since then, despite the fact that no direct flights have been launched, the number of passengers travelling from Budapest to the USA has continued to grow.

A European airline has spotted the potential in this so LOT Polish will launch direct flights from Budapest to New York and Chicago. The first flight will depart on 3 May 2018. Flights to New York will operate on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, and flights to Chicago on Tuesday and Saturday.

The year-round transatlantic flights are supposed to serve 160 000 travelers, who can already book directly on LOT’s website.
