"Koniec", as SPLLG flew for the last time for LOT, after nearly 28 years of operations for the national carrier, ending with "LAST734" callsign on his way back from Kraków to Warsaw. I flew many times with them when I was really young, so a part of my aviation disappears. Sad.

Polish Aviation Group established a new company — LOT Polish Airlines SA — as part of “ordering its operational activities”. Polish Aviation Group denied the national carrier would collapse.

LOT new corporate (LOT Polish Airlines SA) :

New ICAO code - HZR, new callsign - Huzar, and it is still waiting for its AOC.

LOT told it is only to complement activities of PLL LOT (the one already established for a long time actually)
Huzar could be used as reference to Hungary, and the Polish flag carrier has a hub at Budapest...

LOT could become the national carrier of 4 countries, Poland, Hungary, Czechia and Slovakia...

Bratislava and Vienna are only 60kms away, so VIE is probably going to win this "war" if LOT arrives in BTS.

More or less the same as SAS, but there the government's are involved in it.
LOT, and Poland itself, tries to become the most important carrier and country in mid and East Europe.

With the exaggerated megalomaan Airport they want to construct, I'm curious how they will do this if x-number of long hauls have a base outside of Poland

We'll see if governments are ready to invest at least...
