Eurowings has made this announcement:

New destinations in the Eurowings route network for the 2020 summer schedule: From May 21, 2020, Eurowings flies three times a week from Stuttgart to the Romanian capital Bucharest. The route will be operated Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Eurowings flies to the English Channel island of Jersey on Saturdays from May 23, 2020 on.

In addition, the Sofia destination, which is served from Stuttgart in the 2019/2020 winter flight schedule, will remain in operation in summer 2020. In summer, Eurowings flies to the Bulgarian metropolis on Tuesdays and Sundays.

Bucharest in southern Romania is the capital and economic heart of the country. The most characteristic building is the huge Parliament Palace from the time of communism with 1,100 rooms. In the nearby Lipscani quarter there is a dynamic nightlife as well as the tiny Romanian Orthodox church of Stavropoleos and the 15th century palace of Curtea Veche, where Prince Vlad III resided.

Kos is one of the islands of the Greek Dodecanese and is known for its many sandy beaches. It has impressive Greek and Roman landmarks, especially in and around the city of Kos. The port city is characterized by the fortress Neratzia from the 15th century. South of the fortress lie the ancient Agora ruins with a temple, a shrine and preserved columns.

Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands between England and France. The autonomous crown property of the United Kingdom with its mixture of British and French culture is known for its beaches, coastal footpaths, valleys and historic fortresses.

Eurowings adds new destinations from Düsseldorf and Cologne/Bonn for summer 2020

Eurowings made this announcement:

New destinations in the Eurowings route network for the 2020 summer schedule:

From May 3, 2020, Eurowings flies three times a week from Cologne/Bonn to Málaga in Southern Spain. The route will be operated on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays at a one-way price from 59.99€.

From May 1, 2020, Eurowings passengers fly directly from Düsseldorf to the Greek island of Santorini every Friday from 99.99€ per flight.

The destinations Gdansk in Poland and Sofia in Bulgaria, which will be served from Düsseldorf in the 2019/2020 winter schedule, will also remain in the 2020 summer schedule and are available from 39.99€ per flight. Danzig is served on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, Sofia on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. All routes can be booked as of now at eurowings.com or via the Eurowings App.

Málaga is a port city on the Costa del Sol in Spain. The Mediterranean flair and modern buildings meet sandy beaches and an appealing skyline. Numerous churches and chapels, palaces, fountains as well as parks and historical gardens invite visitors to stay. Those interested in art should definitely plan a visit to Pablo Picasso’s birthplace.

Santorini belongs to the archipelago of the Cyclades. Its origin goes back to an earthquake of about 1500 years ago, as a result of which the popular holiday home arose from the volcanic lava. Today, one still finds many beaches with black or red sand. Typical for Santorini are its pretty white buildings and the many churches with half-spherical blue domes.

Verona is located in Northern Italy in the Veneto region. Known as the scene of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”, the city is considered to be the most romantic in Italy. Also world-famous is the impressive Arena of Verona, a Roman amphitheater built in the 1st century, where opera performances and concerts still take place today.

Austrian Airlines to take over some Eurowings routes from Vienna

Austrian Airlines has made this announcement:

Austrian Airlines and Eurowings are repositioning themselves in Austria and reinforce their cooperation. The common goal is to strengthen the Vienna hub and expand decentralised traffic from the Austrian federal states.

Austrian Airlines will be responsible for network planning at the Vienna hub in order to improve the management of transfer traffic. As of January 1, 2020, Eurowings will deploy four aircraft including crews in wet lease for Austrian Airlines.


At the same time, Eurowings will strongly expand its presence at Salzburg Airport and increase the number of Airbus A319 aircraft stationed in the City of Mozart to a total of three. Furthermore, Eurowings will expand its leisure flight program from Innsbruck Airport offering full charter flights to warm-water destinations. Thereby Eurowings is pursuing its strategy of consistently concentrating on decentralized routes i.e. point-to-point flight traffic. Today Eurowings is already number one at four major German airports, namely Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Cologne and Stuttgart.

Within the context of the closer collaboration of the two airlines, the following destinations will be offered in the route network of Austrian Airlines as of January 2020: two daily flights will be operated to Barcelona (expansion from twelve to 14 weekly flights). Birmingham will be served up to once daily (increase from four to seven flights per week). Up to two flights will be operated every day to Nuremberg (twelve weekly flights instead of eleven), and frequencies to Rome will rise to three daily flights (21 flights each week instead of twelve). Up to one daily flight will be offered to Zadar (thus raising the number of weekly flights from two to seven). The leisure flight program (of Austrian and Eurowings) of summer 2020 will be published at a later date.

Check-in for all these flights will take place at Austrian Airlines in Terminal 3 at Vienna Airport in the future. The existing scheduled flight connections of Eurowings between Vienna and Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hannover, Stuttgart and Cologne will remain part of the Eurowings route network and will be operated out of Germany as in the past. These flights will continue to take off from Terminal 1 in Vienna.

For Austrian Airlines, this step provides added impetus to its #DriveTo25 strategy. The ten additional A320 aircraft already announced earlier this year will be complemented by four wet lease aircraft from Eurowings. In January, Austrian Airlines reported that it would phase out its smaller turboprop aircraft by 2021 and increase its medium-haul Airbus fleet from 36 to 46 airplanes. This change in the fleet composition is currently being implemented. The first of the ten A320 aircraft is planned to land in Vienna shortly. The 37th Airbus will take off on behalf of Austrian Airlines starting in December.

Austrian Airlines gradually reorganizes its decentralized routes

In connection with the strategic concentration on its home airport in Vienna, the decision was made by Austrian Airlines to reorganize decentralized routes between the Austrian federal states and Germany.

In an initial step, Austrian Airlines is reorganizing flight operations on the Salzburg-Frankfurt and Graz-Frankfurt routes within the Lufthansa Group and will likely transfer responsibility for these routes to Lufthansa at the turn of the year 2019/2020. The new flight connections can be booked as of October 23, 2019. The number of flights on these two routes will not change: In the upcoming winter flight schedule, a total of 28 weekly flights will be offered linking Salzburg and Frankfurt, whereas 26 flights will be operated between Graz and Frankfurt each week. The previous flight times will be maintained with the exception of a few small adjustments.

However, overall seating capacity between Salzburg and Frankfurt will increase due to the fact that Lufthansa will deploy Airbus A319 and thus larger aircraft than has been the case up until now. A mix of Airbus A319, Embraer 190 and Bombardier CRJ900 jets will be deployed on the Graz-Frankfurt route. Total seating capacity on this route will remain unchanged. In the future, Austrian Airlines will make use of two Embraer aircraft currently stationed in Salzburg and Graz for flights departing from Vienna to destinations in its European route network.

Eurowings increases frequencies from Düsseldorf and Hamburg

Eurowings is adding two new flights to its existing direct services from Düsseldorf to Barcelona and will thus be operating the route daily from June 1, 2020 and a total of 18 nonstop flights per week.

The connection from Düsseldorf to Košice, which will be resumed in the 2019/2020 winter schedule, will also continue in the summer timetable. Flights will be offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from a price of 59.99 euros per route.

There will also be an increased number of flights between Hamburg and Thessaloniki in Greece. With an additional direct connection, passengers will travel six times a week without detour to Thessaloniki from 3 July 2020. These flights can be booked from a one-way price of 49.99 euros.

The Spanish city of Barcelona is world-famous for its architecture. In particular, the Sagrada Família church and the many Gaudí works of art that characterize the cityscape attract countless tourists every year. Located in the northeast of the Iberian peninsula on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the lively metropolis combines beach holiday and sightseeing in an outstanding way.

Košice is the second largest city in Slovakia and is located in the east not far from the Hungarian border. It is artistically influenced and is home to numerous museums as well as several theatres. The National Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra is of supra-regional importance. In the centre of Košice there are cinemas, bars, pubs and nightclubs. The nearby village of Wolovezkie Werkhi provides access to the mountains, which are ideal for hiking in summer and winter sports in winter.

Thessaloniki is a Greek port city on the Thermaic Gulf of the Aegean and the second largest city in the country. Due to its immediate location on the water, it is still considered as an important transhipment point in the Balkans. Lively alleys, numerous bars and restaurants as well as historical buildings form an attractive backdrop for visitors.

Eurowings has made this announcement:

Eurowings adds new destinations from Stuttgart to its summer flight schedule 2020: Starting on June 1, 2020, the airline flies twice a week, on Fridays and Mondays, to the Mediterranean island of Malta.

The island state Malta is located in the Mediterranean Sea and has three inhabited islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. The Blue Lagoon is a popular excursion destination. The climate is pleasant all year round and even in winter at an average of very mild 15 degrees. Malta attracts its visitors with numerous bays, sandy beaches and rock caves to excursions and exploration tours.

Belgrade means “the white city” and is the capital of the Republic of Serbia. Due to its location at the estuary of the Sava into the Danube, Belgrade is often referred to as the gateway to the Balkans.

Florence is the capital of the Italian region of Tuscany and is famous for its numerous Renaissance masterpieces of art and architecture. It was also home to Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. In 1982, the historic city center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

In other news, Eurowings will be flying thousands of football fans from 16 September 2019 to the guest appearances of their favorite teams throughout Europe: During the group phase of the European competitions, Eurowings has specifically increased flight capacity on its Europe-wide route network and offers football fans from Germany, England, Austria, Italy, Spain and Hungary a quick and easy journey to the respective venues. To date, 18 additional flights have already been scheduled: The Eurowings “fan pilots” not only fly between Barcelona and Düsseldorf as well as Cologne/Bonn, they also bring London fans to the Bavarian capital Munich. In addition, Eurowings is expanding its capacity on many existing connections by deploying larger aircraft – for example, on flights from Düsseldorf to Milan or Prague.

A very special highlight awaits fans of the European defending champion: for the first time, they can fly exclusively with Eurowings from Liverpool directly to the Mozart city of Salzburg for a match. In Salzburg, Eurowings now operates one of four bases outside Germany.

Eurowings has set up a special task force to provide these additional flights at short notice: Specialists from various fields work closely together here to ensure, in cooperation with the respective airports, that football fans can travel easily, quickly and punctually to the matches of their teams.
