The new Germanwings is launched today

Germanwings (2nd) (Cologne/Bonn) as a subsidiary of Lufthansa, relaunched operations today (July 1) as a re-invented airline, taking over many former Lufthansa routes and offering three levels of fares and services.

The airline issued this statement:

Today sees the launch of the new Germanwings offering a wider selection of flight services. As well as our popular BASIC and SMART fares, as of today you can book our new BEST fare. You can choose to book a flight by itself with no extra services or our premium offer with everything included. The choice is yours. One thing won’t change, though, and that’s our very low fares.

It doesn’t end there. Germanwings is expanding. Over the next few months we will be taking over a good deal of Lufthansa’s German and European routes. This means in the future you’ll have even more connections to select from, in particular from Berlin, Hamburg and Düsseldorf.

We will now be able to offer you even more destinations. All LH-flights from Stuttgart and Cologne have already been transferred, and over the coming year other flights from Hamburg and Berlin will follow. In 2014 more destinations from Düsseldorf will expand our network even further.
