  • Read more 09APR2014: LOT in talks to lease two Canadian B737s this summer
    LOT Polish Airlines (LO, Warsaw Chopin) is in talks with Canjet Airlines (C6, Halifax) over the possible wet-lease of two B737-800s for the duration of the upcoming summer season. Talks with local tour operator, Itaka, have also taken place.

    Polish aviation portal, pasazer.com, said the aircraft, if secured, will only be used on charter flights.

    Meanwhile, LOT and tour operator Rainbow Tours have renewed an existing cooperation agreement for another two seasons.

    Under the terms of the deal, LOT will operate one of its B787-8s on long-haul flights for Rainbow Tours during the upcoming 2014/15 and 2015/16 Winter seasons. Among the destinations served in the past have included Cancún, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Colombo Int'l.
  • Read more 26MAR2014: EuroLOT begins A320 crew recruitment ahead of Summer charters
    EuroLOT (K2, Warsaw Chopin) has begun recruiting pilots and cabin crew for the A320-200 ahead of planned summer charters to Mediterranean destinations in Greece, Turkey, and Egypt among others. Polish aviation portal Pasazer speculates the aircraft will be hired on wet-leases though this is still subject to confirmation.

    The carrier is also yet to confirm other reports in the Polish media that it is to lease a B787-8, SP-LRF (msn 35942), from parent LOT Polish Airlines (LO, Warsaw Chopin) for use on flights to Thailand.
  • Read more 24MAR2014: Norwegian rejects reports it is in talks with Air Berlin
    Norwegian (DY, Oslo Gardermoen) has rejected reports in local newspaper, Finansavisen, that it is in advanced talks to acquire Air Berlin (AB, Berlin Tegel). In a statement, Airline spokeswoman, Anne-Sissel Skaanvik, told Reuters: "Under normal circumstances we would not comment on such rumors and speculations in the market. But on this occasion I can deny that Norwegian Air is a potential buyer."

    The European aviation community at large has been keenly watching the Norwegian airline ever since CEO Bjørn Kjos revealed plans to acquire a European carrier with US traffic rights should its newly established Irish subsidiary, Norwegian Air International (Dublin Int'l), fail to secure its own. The US Department of Transportation has come under immense pressure from US airlines, trade unions and lobby groups to deny the airline a foreign-carrier traffic-permit on the grounds its use of Irish Air Operators Certificate allows it to circumvent stricter Norwegian labour laws thereby giving it an unfair competitive advantage.

    Norwegian was last year also linked to talks with LOT Polish Airlines (LO, Warsaw Chopin).

    For its part, Air Berlin (AB, Berlin Tegel) has delayed the announcement of its 2013 operating results amid speculation that 29.21% shareholder, Etihad Airways (EY, Abu Dhabi Int'l), is pushing for the airline to delist from the stock exchange ahead of a possible restructuring.
  • Read more 16MAR2014: EuroLOT to wet-lease LOT's sixth B787 for Bangkok flights
    EuroLOT (K2, Warsaw Chopin) will wet-lease the sixth LOT Polish Airlines (LO, Warsaw Chopin) B787-8, SP-LRF (msn 35942), for possible flights to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Poland's aeronews.pl has reported.

    Officials told the newswire that if the project to start services to South East Asia is to go ahead successfully, then all the necessary preparations (applications for slots and traffic rights among others) would have to be made now in order to tap into the Summer holiday market.

    LOT had also been linked to talks with Turkish Airlines (TK, Istanbul Atatürk) over the use of SP-LRF for flights between Istanbul Atatürk and San Francisco, CA this summer. The outcome of those talks is yet unknown.

    In light of EuroLOT's historic domestic and regional operations, the launch of long-haul flights is seen as a major part of the restructuring of LOT itself.

    The Polish national carrier is currently undergoing a renewal and consolidation programme in line with European Commission regulations regarding state bailouts to struggling airlines.
