While most Southeast Asian vacation markets remain closed, LOT has explored several destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean during the course of the pandemic, addressing the demand for European travelers seeking sun and beach destinations. The Polish flag carrier also offers charter flights from Katowice to several destinations in Greece, Italy, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands in Spain.
In March 2021, LOT Polish resumed operations to the Dominican Republic flying to Punta Cana (PUJ) and Puerto Plata (POP) and with the support of the Civil Aviation Board (JAC) has reactivated tourism between Europe and the Caribbean nation.
