LOT Polish Airlines has resumed domestic passenger services to 8 cities on June 1, 2020. The current domestic route network will be extended until June 19, 2020. As part of the renewed route network, LOT Polish Airlines is already flying from Warsaw to Gdansk, Krakow, Poznan, Rzeszow, Szczecin, Wroclaw and Zielona Gora as well as a flight on the Krakow – Gdansk route.

“We hope that within a few weeks we will be able to release information about unfreezing international flights.”

According to Kyodo News, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines announced on the 24th that they will resume some Chinese routes in the near future.
