Eurowings opens a base in Stockholm, Sweden

  • Lufthansa Group value carrier will operate five Airbus A320 aircraft from Stockholm and add 150 crew members for the start-up 
  • Eurowings set to be the new Swedish business and vacation airline / operations will launch in March 2022
  • It will start with 20 low-cost direct flights to major European cities like Berlin, Barcelona, and Rome, as well as many holiday destinations like Palma de Mallorca
  • Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof: “We will attract many Swedish vacationers and business travelers with our cutting-edge services.”

Eurowings is further developing its European network to Scandinavia with the opening of its new location in Stockholm. The popular German airline is offering new services in Scandinavia and will initially station five Airbus A320 aircraft in Stockholm by March 2022. This will be the eleventh Eurowings base of operations in Europe and the fifth outside its home market of Germany after Palma de Mallorca, Prague, Pristina, and Salzburg.

For the first time, the Lufthansa Group value carrier will offer attractive direct connections from Scandinavia to business and vacation destinations throughout Europe. With its increased presence in the Nordics, Eurowings will not only provide better connections to and from Sweden, but especially flights to popular beach destinations in Southern Europe for Swedish customers. The latest Eurowings base at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport also brings hundreds of new jobs to the region and – in what is hopefully the final phase of the Corona pandemic – an important stimulus for employment in the Scandinavian aviation market.

Eurowings flies from Stockholm to 20 European locations for the first time starting on March 27, 2022. The first published routes to and from Stockholm include popular Southern European sun destinations: Palma de Mallorca, Alicante and Malaga in Spain, Faro in Portugal, and Nice in Southern France. Other attractive destinations Eurowings will initially fly to include Berlin, Barcelona, Rome, Copenhagen, Birmingham, Gdansk, and Pristina. Further destinations will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets can be booked shortly via eurowings.com and the Eurowings app. Tickets are already available for booking starting at SEK 299 (29.99 euros) for a one-way flight.

Eurowings sees a comeback of business travel, arrives in Ukraine

Business travel makes a comeback after a long Corona gap: against the backdrop of rising demand, Eurowings is significantly increasing its flight program for business travelers at its largest German airports. With the start of the business travel month of September, the airline will double its range of business connections on short notice compared to August 2021. This is the airline’s response to growing demand for classic business destinations such as Paris, London, Rome, Brussels, Zurich, and Vienna.

“For a year and a half, most business travelers have hardly maintained any personal contact with customers, business partners or international operations. These trips are now being made up for – right across Europe”, says Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof. Eurowings, the largest airline at Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart, and Cologne/Bonn airport, is a good example of this trend: bookings for business destinations have more than doubled within a few weeks, even though still from low levels. Bischof: “For the first time since the beginning of the pandemic, we are seeing sold-out business class on numerous flights – another clear signal that business travel is now making a strong comeback after the end of the summer vacations.” Accordingly, Eurowings significantly expands its network and from September will once again be offering customers around 300 business connections via direct flights.

Eurowings doubles flights to business destinations

Connections that are in high demand, for example to Zurich, Copenhagen, Dresden, or Bremen, will now be offered twice daily with attractive off-peak times – with a focus on flights from Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart, and Cologne/Bonn. Eurowings is thus doubling frequencies in September and October compared with August. The airports of Berlin, Hanover, Nuremberg, and Leipzig will also be served more frequently from September, making it easier for Eurowings customers to plan day trips. Connections such as Dusseldorf-Leipzig, Dusseldorf-Nuremberg, Hanover-Stuttgart, and Hamburg-Nuremberg are now once again in daily demand – and can be found accordingly in the Eurowings flight schedule.

New attractive business routes throughout Europe

Further highlights in the flight schedule from September and October: Eurowings passengers can now once again fly directly from Hamburg to Prague, Paris, Barcelona, Málaga, Cagliari, Faro, Rome, London, Naples, and Valencia. From Cologne/Bonn, the airline will fly its guests to Budapest, Brindisi, Rome, Malaga, Bologna, London, Milan, Naples, Lamezia Terme and Salzburg.  Stuttgart will be connected by direct flight with Alicante, Bilbao, Faro, Brussels, Graz, Rome, and Milan. From Düsseldorf, passengers will now fly to Lisbon, Linz, Zagreb, Kiev, Wroclaw, Geneva, Lyon, Dublin, Bucharest, Edinburgh, Jerez, and Newcastle. The Canary Islands will also be served again in September and October by flights from Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne/Bonn, Stuttgart, and Düsseldorf.

Ten airport lounges reopen from September – new in Cologne/Bonn, Sylt, and Salzburg

During September, Eurowings passengers can make their journey even more pleasant and enjoy the time before their departure in one of the ten newly reopened airport lounges – such as at Cologne/Bonn Airport. Among other things, hot and cold meals, drinks, and free WLAN are on offer. In addition to the applicable COVID 19 hygiene regulations, hand disinfection dispensers are also available to passengers. Access to the lounges is available to Eurowings BIZclass passengers, Miles&More HON Circle members, and senators with SMART fare tickets. An overview of all lounges is published on eurowings.com. Miles & More customers also earn double Miles & More status miles as well as HON Circle miles on all Eurowings flights until the end of 2021. The double miles are credited automatically after the flight.

In other news, Eurowings is once again flying nonstop to Ukraine: the airline is launching a new direct connection and flying its passengers from Düsseldorf Airport to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv for the first time in a long time.

On Mondays and Wednesdays, an Airbus A320 takes off from Düsseldorf Airport at 11.30 a.m., arriving in Kyiv at 3.10 p.m., and on Fridays at 6.50 a.m., landing at 10.30 a.m. The return flight departs on Mondays and Wednesdays at 3.55 p.m. with arrival at 5.40 p.m. in the North Rhine-Westphalian capital, and on Fridays with departure at 11.15 a.m. in Kyiv and landing at 1.00 p.m. All flight times are local times.

The flights expand the offer in the area of “family and home visits,” in which the Lufthansa subsidiary already offers numerous connections to Greece, Croatia, Turkey or Beirut in Lebanon, for example. Since July, Eurowings has also included flights to Tbilisi in Georgia, to Yekaterinburg and Krasnodar in Russia as well as to the Armenian capital Yerevan in its program. Eurowings is the leader in this market segment and is steadily expanding its position due to increasing demand. As a result, even more travelers benefit from direct connections to their home countries. In total, the Eurowings route network includes connections to more than 100 destinations in Europe.

Kyiv is the capital of Ukraine and also an important location for business and education. With almost 3 million inhabitants, the metropolis on the Dnieper River is the most important Ukrainian transport hub.

Eurowings to offer more flights from Stuttgart to more than 60 destinations with 15 based aircraft

Eurowings has made this announcement:

The summer holidays will soon begin in Baden-Württemberg. Over the past weeks and months, Eurowings and its employees on board and on the ground have been working intensively with their partners at Stuttgart Airport to prepare for the start of the most wonderful time of the year. After the long lockdown, the desire to travel is greater this summer than it has been for a long time.

Greatest variety in the Southwest: Eurowings takes off from Stuttgart to more than 60 Destinations

With a rising vaccination rate, the demand for flights has increased significantly. Tourist destinations are demand – above all Mallorca, Greece, the Canary Islands and Croatia.  Eurowings has reacted to this by successively expanding its flight program – and has increased its offer in Stuttgart, the largest Eurowings location in southwest Germany, by another 40 per cent during the holidays.

From Stuttgart, Eurowings offers travelers the largest range of flights at the location during the summer holidays: Over 60 destinations in 18 countries are on the program. On the first holiday weekend, Eurowings expects around 25,000 passengers at the airport in the state capital. In total, the Lufthansa holiday carrier will take off from Stuttgart around 1,800 times during the summer holidays in Baden-Württemberg. Even if Eurowings offers a large part of its original route portfolio again over the summer, the program in 2021 will only comprise around two-thirds of the pre-Corona capacity overall.

With the expansion of the summer offer, the active aircraft fleet is also growing: While Eurowings was still operating 12 aircraft from Stuttgart at the beginning of the summer, the airline will be using 15 Airbus aircraft in Stuttgart from August. This makes Stuttgart the second largest Eurowings base in terms of the number of aircraft stationed there. Across Europe, more than 80 aircraft will be flying for Eurowings in midsummer.

With Eurowings over 40 times a week from Stuttgart 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: Majorca continues to be very popular with travelers and tops the hit list of Eurowings’ most popular destinations again this summer. From Stuttgart alone, Eurowings flies to the Balearic island up to six times a day during the holidays. In total, Eurowings connects 24 airports in Germany and Austria with the popular holiday destination and is 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 don’t miss out either: Eurowings flies several times a week to Athens, Barcelona, or Budapest, for example.

From Düsseldorf, Eurowings’ largest base, Eurowings will take off for the first time on December 4 to Tromsø, Norway.
