Eurowings made this announcement:
The summer vacation in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany’s most populous state, is beginning on Friday. In recent weeks and months, Eurowings and its employees on board and on the ground have been working intensively with their partners to prepare for the start of the most wonderful time of the year. After the long lock-down, the desire to travel is greater this summer than it has been for a long time.
Eurowings takes off from Düsseldorf to more than 70 destinations
With the rising vaccination rate, falling infection numbers and the lifting of travel restrictions, the demand for flights is increasing significantly. Tourist destinations are in demand – above all Mallorca, Greece, the Canary Islands and Croatia. Eurowings has reacted to this by successively expanding its flight program and increasing the number of flights offered in Düsseldorf alone, the largest Eurowings station, by another 40 per cent during the holidays.
From Düsseldorf, Eurowings offers travelers the largest range of flights of all airlines during the summer holidays: more than 70 destinations in 20 countries are in the program, from Cologne there are 60 destinations in 18 countries. On the first holiday weekend, Eurowings expects around 25,000 passengers in Düsseldorf and 13,000 in Cologne. 4,000 Eurowings flights will take place in Düsseldorf during the holiday period, just under 2,000 flights in Cologne. Even though Eurowings is going to offer a large part of its original route portfolio again over the summer, the 2021 summer program will only encompass around two-thirds of the capacity before Coronavirus (COVID-19).
With the expansion of the summer offering, the active aircraft fleet is also growing: While Eurowings was operating only 45 aircraft in May, more than 70 Airbus aircraft will again take off for the Lufthansa subsidiary in July and August. In September, Eurowings plans to operate 80 aircraft. At the two major Eurowings locations in North Rhine-Westphalia alone, almost 40 aircraft will be stationed this summer: 26 aircraft in Düsseldorf, 13 in Cologne.
With Eurowings up to ten times daily from Düsseldorf to Mallorca
With its wide range of holiday offers, Eurowings is positioning itself as Germany’s leading holiday airline on short and medium-haul routes for the start of summer 2021: Mallorca continues to be very popular with travelers and tops the hit list of Eurowings’ most popular destinations again this summer. From Düsseldorf alone, Eurowings flies to the Balearic island up to ten times a day during the holidays. From Cologne, there are five daily flights to Mallorca. In total, Eurowings connects 24 airports in Germany and Austria with the popular holiday destination, making it the undisputed No. 1 Mallorca shuttle with more than 300 weekly flights.
Greek Heraklion and Thessaloniki, Ibiza and Malaga also enjoy strong demand and are served daily. Other destinations include Sardinia, Croatia, Sicily, and the smaller Greek islands. City travelers do not miss out either: Eurowings flies several times a week to Milan, Rome, or Barcelona, for example. New destinations include Mykonos, Palermo, Krasnodar and Ekaterinburg in Russia and Tbilisi in Georgia.
