Polish Airlines begins flight to Colombo: BOOST TO TOURISM IN SRI LANKA?
OT Polish Airlines’ Boeing 787 Dreamliner landed in Colombo yesterday (05th November 2019) inaugurating LOT’s first regular, seasonal winter flights to Asia.
The flight will operate three times a week giving a boost to tourism traffic from Poland and other European countries to Sri Lanka. This might bring more European travelers to Sri Lanka which will eventually boost tourism.
“Colombo is already the seventh LOT’s flight destination in Asia and the first launched regular seasonal winter flight to the region. We fully benefit from our modern and long-distance fleet and we select destinations that have the biggest potential. For many years, Southern Asia has been one of the most frequently chosen alternatives to more traditional travel destinations during winter by the growing number of tourists. Almost two million passengers travel from Europe to Colombo annually. This winter, thanks to our offer, passengers will be able to travel to the paradise island of Ceylon,”
