Press Conference With Aircraft Showing Ironman Logo


Warsaw, Dec. 2, 2014 – As the official carrier for Herbalife IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia, LOT has painted one of its Embraer 175 aircraft with the livery of Herbalife IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia.  It will be flown to various European and Polish destinations over the next 6 months. 

“We are glad that such a popular and prestigious event is finally taking place in Poland,” said Piotr Netter, director of Herbalife IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia.  “It is a great honor and proof that years of hard work for promoting triathlon in Poland have been rewarded. Ironman events are attended by people from all over the world. Statistically speaking, even half of the participants are foreigners. So we are even happier we had a chance to work with our national airline. Together with LOT Polish Airlines, we want to provide a comfortable and enjoyable journey to the event and make sure our guests feel good in Gdynia.”

“As a modern international carrier, LOT is pleased to contribute to such a prestigious and world-renowned event, said Sebastian Mikosz, CEO of LOT Polish Airlines and one of the event’s ambassadors. “We are glad we can take part in promoting a healthy lifestyle and sportsmanship. We can identify with the slogan of the Polish IRONMAN event – ‘Rising to the higher level’. Recently, LOT has been undergoing significant changes and – like in sport – overcoming its weaknesses, taking up new challenges and gaining passengers’ trust with its new offerings. We are also happy to promote our country in a novel way. Our aircraft are available to anyone who wants to travel from various cities in the world and in Poland to Gdynia and compete in the triathlon event in August.”

LOT is also promoting a healthy lifestyle on board. On long-haul Dreamliner flights, LOT Premium and LOT Business Class feature a healthy breakfast. Beginning in 2015, the offer will be available in all classes and on all LOT’s routes. The new breakfast is perfect for passengers who want to keep healthy and fit and prefer to have a nutritious in-flight meal composed of top-quality light ingredients including a lot of vegetables, white meat or fish.

As the official carrier of Herbalife IRONMAN 70.3 Gdynia, LOT has also prepared a special offer for the participants and their families.  In addition, the innovative personal travel agency LOT Travel has prepared attractive complete packages including flights, hotel, transport and insurance.

Herbalife Ironman 70.3 Gdynia and accompanying events will take place from 7-9 August 2015. The schedule includes long-distance races (a 1.9 km/1.2 mile swim, a 90 km/55.9 mile bicycle ride and a 21.1/13.1 mile run) and short-distance races (0.75 km/0.47 mile, 20 km/12.4 mile, 5 km/3.1 mile), as well as 3-person relays and kid aquathlons.
