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 North America, East Asia, and more.

Hello and welcome to LOT Virtual! We aim to provide a quality VA service where pilots can experience LOTV’s diversity of routes, fleet, and hospitality.

We can’t wait to have you in our roster!
See you in the skies 🛫
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 main hub Warsaw and other regional bases.
LOT Polish Airlines is proudly the launch 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 international flights, as well as in some regional hops.
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, in addition to serving the same European routes alongside the E170.
The Boeing 737 family is one of the most successful aircraft families in aviation history. LOT Virtual uses the Boeing 737-800 for medium-haul international flights, such as Warsaw to Tbilisi, Warsaw to Yerevan and other similar routes.
Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner
Also known as the “Dreamliner”, the Boeing 787 is one of the most modern and efficient aircraft of today’s times. LOT Virtual uses the 787 for our long-haul international flights.
LOT Virtual has an extensive route network, all of which is detailed in the following:

We operate an awards system alongside our ranking system. These awards are given only to the most dedicated pilots in the VA. We have 4 awards:
|Award||Flight Hours||Flight Time Multiplier||Perks|
|Bronze Award||1111 hours||1.2x flight time multiplier||Project Eagle Long Haul|
|Silver Award||1989 hours||1.3x flight time multiplier||Project Eagle Ultra Long Haul|
|Gold Award||3005 hours||1.4x flight time multiplier||LOTV Charters|
|Diamond Award||4000 hours||1.5x flight time multiplier||President’s Badge of Honor|
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!
Project Eagle is LOT Virtual’s new program which enhances the connectivity of LOT Virtual across the globe by serving destinations the real-life counterpart does not serve in real-life. This increase the choices for our pilots to explore new destinations using the familiar colors they know.
Upon earning the Gold Award, you’ll be able to fly to whatever destination you cherish using a LOT Polish Airlines aircraft, with no restrictions on flight time and distance! LOTV Charter operations are based in our main hub at Warsaw (WAW. EPWA), and must either originate or terminate from there.
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. This is a great way to get more flight hours, and climb up the prestigious ranks of LOT Virtual.
Coming Soon. Every so often, our staff team will release a random set of routes for you to fly with no rank restrictions and generous multipliers, but only for a limited time! Those who take advantage of it will greatly speed up their progress in climbing LOTV’s ranks and reaching the top!
LOT Virtual has recently switched over to a VACenter crewcenter, a state-of-the-art crewcenter developed by @Sam_Neale and his team. LOT Virtual pilots can view their flight hours, rank, flights filed, and some interesting statistics!
LOT Virtual uses Discord to facilitate all important VA communications in addition to pilot communication.
