"It is the first such convenient connection between Central and Eastern Europe and Florida with almost half a million passengers per year travelling between the two regions. Thanks to our broad network of connections and the most convenient transfers offered via hub in Warsaw, I am sure that many passengers from Miami will take advantage of our latest offer and fly on our board to Budapest, Prague, Kiev or Tel-Aviv."
