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 Poland and the surrounding regions to the world. LOT Virtual aims to do the same, only in Infinite Flight’s virtual skies. We operate several aircraft, ranging from the small regional Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 to the efficient 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 more.


LOTV is IFVARB Approved!

LOT Virtual operates aircraft of different categories, from small turboprops to long-haulers. Our fleet consists of the following:

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. Our subsidiary, euroLOT, also uses this regional jet as its primary aircraft. Unlocked at rank Cadet.


Embraer E170


LOT Polish Airlines were one of the first costumers of this regional jet, first being delivered in 2004. It could seat 70 passengers in a three-class configuration (Business, Premium Economy, Economy). This jet servers many of our short-haul European destinations. Unlocked at rank Second 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, serving destinations such as Istanbul (LTFM), Kyiv (UKKK/UKBB), and Moscow (UUEE), among many others. 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/medium-haul international flights, serving destinations such as London (EGLL), Dubai (OMDB), Lisbon (LPPT), among many others . Unlocked at rank Captain.


Boeing 787-8


*The Boeing 787 is one of the most efficient commercial aircraft in the market. Our first 787 was delivered in November 2012, making LOT Polish Airlines the first European carrier to operate the 787. LOT Virtual uses the Boeing 787-8 for long-haul international flights, serving destinations such as Los Angeles (KLAX), Chicago (KORD), Miami (KMIA), Maldives (VRMM), and Seoul (RKSI), among several others.

Award Flight Hours Flight Time Multiplier
Bronze Award 500 hours 1.2x flight time multiplier
Silver Award 800 hours 1.3x flight time multiplier
Gold Award 1500 hours 1.4x flight time multiplier
Diamond Award 3000 hours 1.5x flight time multiplier

Bonus Award
Every so often, the Miles & More award is presented to the pilot who flew the most nautical miles during the last month. The award is a 1.5x multiplier for their next flight under 5 hours!


LOTV Worldwide

We presented LOTV Worldwide with the aim of servicing some unique charter flights not served by LOT in real-life. The first section of LOTV Worldwide can be unlocked on the rank of Voyager with the B737-800, and the second section is unlocked at Pearl Award with the B787-8.


Career Mode

LOT Virtual’s career mode aims to enhance the realism within the LOTV community. Our career mode is route-based, which means that you need to complete each set in order before proceeding to the next aircraft and set. There will be exclusive and huge prizes once all sets are completed!


Routes of the Week

Since we have an ever-growing route database, why not take advantage of it? Every week, our staff team will choose countries for each day based on the IFATC Schedule. A different country/region is selected each day as the theme for that day. All chosen routes will have a 1.3x multiplier, while LOT Polish Airlines flights have a 1.5x multiplier. FNF routes will also have a 1.5x multiplier. This is a great way for pilots to get more flight hours, and climb up the prestigious ranks of LOT Virtual.


LOT Virtual uses VANet, a Crew Center built by @KaiM and @rebal15. Our Crew Center is where you can view your flight hours, file Pilot Reports, search for LOTV routes, and more!


However, AirTable remains the platform of choice for our primary route database, which contains over 1500 routes for you to choose and fly. You can still find some of our routes on VANet.

LOT Virtual uses Discord to facilitate all VA communications and announcements. Our several bots, including one hand-coded by our CEO, @HappyDays, helps integration with our VANet crewcenter and AirTable route databases easier.

Hello, this thread looks very nice, just one thing, looking at your route diagrams, I believe you’re missing a domestic route between EPWA and EPKT, which is usually served by the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 or sometimes a B737-8, rarely they even get a flight with the B787 (which gets stationed in EPKT for charter flights to the Dominican Republic in spring and summer). Just wanted to let you know, since EPKT is my home airport! Also might look to join you soon!

Thanks for feedback @Infinite_Aircraft ! :) You’re right! Idk why LO3885 is missing in our routes database, but we’ll fix it ;)
And hope to see you soon in LOT Virtual! 😁
