The U.S. based magazine is read by a wide audience of managers and frequent business travelers.

In the air transport category, there are 38 different awards and at the gala ceremony in Los Angeles, LOT was selected as the best airline in the Eastern European region. In Thursday’s announcement, LOT Polish Airlines’ CEO, Rafal Milczarski said,


“The award, granted for the third time in a row by the American Global Traveler magazine, is proof of the growing popularity of LOT not only in Europe but in the United States. Over the past four years, we have more than doubled in growth, launching more than 70- new destinations and acquiring 40 aircraft. We are constantly improving our product and increasing the offer of available connections, including to the USA. Last year we had 8.9 million passengers traveling with us, and this year we will break the record of 10 million passengers carried onboard our aircraft. This is yet another token of LOT’s ability to leverage the region’s potential through the development of two hubs in Warsaw and Budapest and to become the leader in Central and Eastern European transport.”
