The service from Warsaw’s Chopin Airport to London City Airport is due to launch on January 7 and will be operated twice a day by Embraer 190 jets.
The new route is expected to appeal to both business and leisure travellers.
Adrian Kubicki, head of corporate communications at LOT Polish Airlines, was quoted as saying: “We are extremely happy to announce this prestigious destination as our 100th connection in our network.
"LOT has a long-lasting history of operations to London Heathrow, where we are flying three times a day.
"Now we are opening the new chapter by putting two daily flights to London City into our offer."
London City is “the most convenient airport for those passengers willing to get to the City of London in the shortest and most comfortable way,” according to Kubicki.
At the end of last year, LOT said it aimed to transport up to 10 million passengers in 2018, up from 6.8 million in 2017. The carrier also announced plans to offer a number of new destinations and increase the frequency of flights.
More than 1 million Poles lived in Britain at the end of last year, according to the UK Office for National Statistics.
