The state-owned airline said in a social media post that “due to the unstable situation on the aviation markets, as well as numerous restrictions related to transport in the time of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic, all passenger and international flights scheduled until June 14 inclusive are canceled.”

Meanwhile, flights on a number of domestic passenger routes will resume from June 1 as Poland eases restrictions imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus, LOT announced on Monday.

Poland in mid-March temporarily closed its borders to non-residents and suspended most international flights and train services in a move to contain the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic.

A total of 19,080 people have tested positive for the COVID-19 disease in Poland, with 941 deaths from the coronavirus so far, public health officials said on Tuesday morning.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, LOT last month dropped a plan to purchase German airline Condor.
