Eurowings to see its largest growth spurt in 2018

Previously on September 26, 2017, Lufthansa’s Supervisory Board approved and announced the rapid growth of its lower-cost Eurowings, especially in Europe:

The Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG approved the rapid expansion of the Eurowings Group at its meeting in September 2017. For this purpose, an investment framework of around EUR 1 billion was approved for the purchase and leasing of aircraft. The funds were used towards obtaining up to 61 aircraft, including 41 Airbus A320 Family aircraft and 20 Bombardier Q400s.

During the summer of 2017, Lufthansa wet leased 20 aircraft operated for Eurowings under the existing wet lease agreement with Airberlin; 15 by acquisition and five more leased with a purchasing option.

The Eurowings Group is expected to require up to 3,000 additional jobs in the cockpit and cabin operations, due to the hiring and intended acquisition of companies of the Air Berlin Group. Job advertisements and staffing have already started.

Carsten Spohr, Chairman of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG: “We now have the great opportunity to take a decisive step forward with Eurowings in Europe. The Supervisory Board and the Executive Board agree that we are determined to seize this opportunity. With the approval of an additional investment framework for the acquisition of aircraft, the necessary preconditions have now been met. For Eurowings, it will be a major challenge to cope with the rapid growth. I am particularly pleased that this will enable us to offer up to 3,000 new employees a secure perspective in the Eurowings Group.”

The airline is growing so fast, it is leasing in aircraft from other airlines to meet the expansion in the first quarter of 2018 following the failure of Airberlin. Adria Airways (above) will operate Airbus A319s from the Cologne/Bonn hub for Eurowings. Czech Airlines will operate its Airbus A319s for Eurowings from Hamburg (below).
