Eurowings made this announcement:
Hey Sverige – yesterday was finally the day: the first Eurowings flight from the new base in Stockholm/Arlanda took off punctually from Stockholm shortly after 2 p.m., heading for Barcelona.
For the first time, Eurowings is now offering its passengers direct flights from Sweden to numerous attractive destinations – including exciting cities like Barcelona, Hamburg and sunny destinations such as Europe’s most popular vacation island, Mallorca. With the opening of its new base, the German airline is significantly expanding its services in northern Europe: Stockholm is the eleventh Eurowings location in Europe – and the fifth base outside the home market of Germany, following Palma de Mallorca, Prague, Pristina, and Salzburg.
With its increased presence in “the Nordics,” the popular German airline is not only creating better connections for Sweden, especially to sunny destinations in southern Europe. The move also brings hundreds of new jobs to the region (both direct and indirect), creating employment momentum for the Scandinavian aviation market.
The new flights from Stockholm go to several popular holiday destinations in southern Europe, such as Palma de Mallorca, Alicante and Malaga in Spain. Other destinations are Birmingham, Nice, Hamburg and Düsseldorf. Eurowings will also fly to the Greek islands of Heraklion, Rhodes and Mykonos as well as Larnaca in Cyprus. Eurowings will add more destinations from Arlanda during the summer. Tickets can be booked via eurowings.com and the Eurowings app. Prices start at SEK 299 (29.99 euros) for a one-way flight.
