LOT Polish Airlines (LO, Warsaw Chopin) will lease four brand new E190s from Nordic Aviation Capital by the end of 2018, adding to its existing fleet of the other three types of Embraer regional jets.

The Polish flag carrier has announced it will use the aircraft among others to serve its new route from Warsaw Chopin to London City, due to be operated 12x weekly from January 7, 2019. The carrier will continue to serve London Heathrow 21x weekly. It will become the only airline to connect London City with Poland.

It is currently in the process of introducing a further four ex-Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras EMB-195IGWs.
