The plane will be handed over from the US manufacturer to the Polish airline in a ceremony in Everett, near Seattle and is expected to arrive in Poland on Thursday morning.
LOT spokesman Adrian Kubicki said the plane will feature a white-and-red paint job, with the outline of Poland’s borders and the national flag, as the airline is an unofficial ambassador for Poland.
The plane will serve as an invitation for visitors to Poland, Kubicki said.
LOT’s new Dreamliner will service connections from Warsaw to Toronto, Chicago, New York and its new direct connection to Singapore.
Later this week, LOT expects to receive a Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane, also featuring the commemorative paint-job.
The state-owned airline says it aims to transport up to 10 million passengers this year, up from 6.8 million in 2017.
Poland will celebrate its independence centenary on this autumn.
Poland regained independence on November 11, 1918, the day World War I ended, after 123 years of partition by Russia, Austria and Prussia. (vb)
