LOT Virtual was founded in October 2020 with the aim of providing excellent VA service. LOT Polish Airlines, being the largest airline in Central and Eastern Europe, aims to connect Central Europe to the World. LOT Virtual aims to do the same, only in Infinite Flight’s virtual skies. We operate several aircraft, ranging from the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 to the mighty B787 Dreamliner. We serve routes in 5 continents, with our short-haul fleet operating European routes and our 787 connects Poland to The Americas, Africa, and some Asian destinations.


LOT Virtual operates the following aircraft:

Bombardier Dash 8 Q400

The Dash 8 Q400 by Bombardier is the smallest aircraft in our fleet. It carries about 80 passengers. We use the Q400 for many of our short, regional flights from our two hubs, Warsaw and Budapest. Unlocked at rank Trainee.

Embraer E170

LOT Polish Airlines is proudly the first customer of the E170. LOT Polish Airlines operates the entire E-Jet series, which ranges from the E170 to the E195. Our E170 is used for most of our European intercontinental flights. Unlocked at rank Second Officer.

Bombardier CRJ-700 (Nordica)

Nordica is the flag carrier of Estonia, and a LOT subsidiary. Nordica mostly operates from its hub in Tallinn, but also operates many of its routes in Scandinavia. Unlocked at rank First Officer.

Embraer E195

The Embraer E195 is the bigger brother of the E170; it carries more passengers and has more range. We use our E195s for longer European flights, such as Warsaw to Istanbul. Unlocked at rank Senior First Officer.

Boeing 737-800

The Boeing 737 family is one of the most successful aircraft family in aviation history. LOT Virtual uses the Boeing 737-800 for short-haul international flights, such as Warsaw to London, Warsaw to Yerevan and other similar routes. Unlocked at rank Captain.

Boeing 787-8

Also called the “dreamliner”, the Boeing 787 is one of the most modern and efficient aircraft. LOT Virtual uses the 787 for our long-haul international flights. Unlocked at rank Commander.

LOTV Worldwide

Here’s your chance to unlock virtual aircraft to fly whenever and wherever! The only condition is that your flight must start or end at one of our hubs, Warsaw Frederic Chopin and Budapest Frenec Liszt airports. This program is built on a career-like system, where you start where you left off. Your flight may have up to 5 legs. Unlock the first aircraft, a Boeing 737BBJ, at the rank of Voyager, and your next aircraft, a LOT Polish Airlines B787-8, at Bronze Award.


Monday sMILEs

Monday sMILEs is a good opportunity for our pilots to gain flight hours. Every flight flown on a Monday would automatically receive a 1.2x miles multiplier. (excludes Routes of The Week)


Routes Of The Week

Every week, our staff team will choose 2-5 routes for each day, which include airports served by IFATC controllers. All chosen routes will have a 1.3x multiplier, while FNF routes will have a 1.5x multiplier. This is a great opportunity for pilots to get more flight hours, and climb up the prestigious ranks of LOT Virtual.
