LOT Embraer 175, registration SP-LIA, has changed its livery and become the worldís first official aircraft of the ìMamma Mia!î musical.
The livery change is part of the cooperation with the ROMA Musical Theatre in Warsaw, which is now working on the Polish premiere of the musical based on the greatest hits of the Swedish band ABBA.
The aircraft made its first flight from Warsaw to Stockholm.
ìABBA travelled on board our aircraft along this route during their first and only visit to Poland. It was a long time ago. Since then, LOT has become a modern airline. Similarly, the musical Mamma Mia! as adapted by the Roma Theatre will be a chance to rediscover famous and popular hits of the Swedish bandî, says Sebastian Mikosz, CEO of the LOT Polish Airlines. ìWe are excited about our cooperation on this unique production prepared in an innovative and spectacular way. I hope that not only the sentiment for ABBAís songs but also the travel comfort in each of our three classes on short-haul flights will encourage a lot of people to visit Polandî, added Sebastian Mikosz.
The aircraft with ìMamma Mia!î livery will operate all European LOT flights. Passengers can also expect a surprise on board. While boarding, they will hear ABBAís greatest hits: Mamma Mia, Chiquitita, Take a chance on me, Waterloo and Voulez-Vous.
On 23 September in Warsaw, the Polish cast of the musical will be announced at a press conference. The musical is scheduled to premiere in February 2015.
In addition, ABBA fans can choose from LOT Travel offers. They include a unique package with Stockholm sightseeing in the footsteps of the legendary band.
