Eurowings on June 15 launched another new long-haul service from Munich – this time to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Initially once a week, then twice a week from July 15.

The long-haul service to Bangkok is one of ten new routes, in addition to its dense network of German and European routes, that the airline is offering from Terminal 2 at Munich airport this year. Alongside Düsseldorf, the Bavarian airport is Eurowings’ second location for long-haul services. Passengers can also combine both departure airports: many destinations – including Bangkok – are offered from both airports. In the coming winter flight schedule, Bangkok can only be booked via Düsseldorf, the summer flight schedule also allows passengers from Munich to take direct flights on Fridays and Sundays up to the end of October.

The eleven-hour flight will be operated with an Airbus A330 in long-haul configuration with generous seat spacing, creative in-flight catering and one of the most advanced entertainment systems. Passengers can even surf the Internet during the flight. At bargain prices starting from EUR 199.99 per one-way flight, all Eurowings flights can be booked quickly and conveniently via the Eurowings app or the website: http://www.eurowings.com.

With the launch of yet another long-haul service, Eurowings is continuing its rapid and consistent development at Germany’s second-largest airport. The airline only started flight operations from Munich Airport, located in the Erdinger Moos area, at the end of March last year and now, in addition to the A320 medium-haul fleet, it also has three long-haul aircraft of the Airbus A330 type based there. The addition of two Caribbean routes to Montego Bay in Jamaica and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic is also scheduled for July.

Lufthansa Group establishes Eurowings Europe GmbH, is pleased with the early long-haul bookings

Lufthansa Group (Frankfurt) is happy with the early bookings for its upcoming new Eurowings long-haul services. The group also established Eurowings Europe (Vienna) on August 10. The group issued this report:

Eurowings (2014) logo (large)

The new Eurowings looks all set for a successful launch of its attractively-priced long-haul services. Three months ahead of its first such flights – to the Caribbean, Thailand and Dubai – Lufthansa’s new budget-fare subsidiary reports promising booking levels.

“As the customer demand confirms, what we’re offering here is a highly attractive long-haul air travel product,” says Karl Ulrich Garnadt, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and CEO of Lufthansa German Airlines. “Our strategy of offering our further Eurowings brand, which is aimed particularly at price-sensitive leisure travellers, clearly meets a market need. And our decision to commence these operations in Cologne and the North Rhine Westphalia region has proved a prudent one, too.”

The new intercontinental services will be operated with Airbus A330-200 equipment (above). The first two aircraft are already being prepared to enter revenue service at the beginning of November. The Eurowings long-haul fleet will then gradually be expanded to seven Airbus A330s.

The new Eurowings is adopting the business and marketing concept that has already proved successful with its sister carrier Germanwings, which has firmly positioned itself as an innovative quality low-cost airline.

While Germanwings is focused on the German air travel market, Eurowings will now expand the concept throughout Europe, and will further extend it to intercontinental city and vacation destinations.

Eurowings will be opening its first operating base outside Germany in Austria. In collaboration with fellow Lufthansa Group carrier Austrian Airlines, Eurowings will offer European services from and to Vienna using Airbus A320 equipment – one aircraft from the 2015/16 winter schedules, and a second from March 2016. Both aircraft will be operated by Austrian Airlines.

The new Eurowings Europe GmbH was founded in Austria on Monday, August 10.

The company will serve as the starting point for further growth, which will see the establishment of several more operating bases throughout the European continent. Eurowings Europe is currently setting up its flight operations, which includes creating its own cockpit and cabin crew corps.

The new Eurowings cockpit crew positions are initially being advertised internally within Lufthansa, to give priority to existing pilots from the Lufthansa Group and those who have completed their flight training in Bremen and are awaiting suitable vacancies. The pilot recruitment process should then be extended to outside applicants in the second half of August. The cabin crew recruitment process will begin in the second half of September.

The remuneration systems at Eurowings Europe will be aligned to those already in place at other airlines within the Lufthansa Group. But they will also pay due regard to the particular conditions and challenges of the low-cost airline sector, particularly in terms of productivity levels and seasonal demand fluctuations.

The new remuneration packages will also feature attractive occupational pension benefits. As well as offering an employer’s retirement savings contribution amounting to 2% of the employee’s basic salary, Eurowings will increase this contribution to 2.5% for any employee who undertakes to make their own employee’s savings contribution of 1.0%.
