Eurowings flies to Russia and Georgia for the first time

Eurowings issued this statement:

Starting in summer with Eurowings nonstop to Russia and Georgia: the airline launches three new direct connections starting in July, flying its passengers from Düsseldorf to Russia for the first time – to Ekaterinburg (above) and Krasnodar in Southern Russia – as well as to the Georgian capital Tbilisi.

The flights expand the range in the “Visit Friends and Relatives” segment, in which the Lufthansa subsidiary already offers numerous flights to Greece, Croatia, Algeria and Turkey, for example. Most recently, connections to Beirut in Lebanon and Erbil in northern Iraq were added to the Eurowings program in December. Eurowings is the leader in this market segment and is increasingly expanding its position in response to growing demand. As a result, even more travelers benefit from direct connections to their home countries.

The new routes will be operated by an Airbus A320.

Lufthansa doubles number of flights for Easter travel season

Lufthansa has made this announcement:

Lufthansa is reporting an increase in bookings for the upcoming Easter travel season.  For the last two weeks, up to 80 percent more bookings were received for Mallorca, 20 percent more bookings for the Canary Islands, as well as 50 percent for Mexico. The lifting of travel restrictions to Mallorca by the Federal Government of Germany will further strengthen this trend. The airline is responding to the increased demand and has almost doubled the number of offered flights.

In total, Lufthansa will be offering around 1,200 European flights from March to April. That is around 200 percent more connections from Munich and around 50 percent more from Frankfurt compared with the current week.

Destinations in Spain are particularly in demand. That is why the airline is flying to almost every Canary Island for the first time. Capacities from Munich to Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura will even be doubled for Easter, and from Frankfurt, capacities to Gran Canaria and Tenerife will be increased by 50 percent.

“Die Maus” (The Mouse) on D-AIRY”:


Mallorca is currently in particularly high demand among vacationers. Lufthansa has responded by significantly increasing the number of flights to Mallorca: instead of two weekly flights from Munich, there will now be up to eleven weekly connections, and from Frankfurt, instead of six weekly flights, there will now be up to 20 weekly connections during the Easter travel season.


In addition, Eurowings is currently successively expanding its frequencies to Mallorca: The airline is planning up to 325 weekly flights from 24 airports in Germany and the UK to Palma de Mallorca.

In addition, in Spain, the cities of Valencia and Málaga are usually  heavily booked by all sun-seekers over Easter.

In the case of overseas flights, Cancun in Mexico and San José in Costa Rica from Frankfurt are particularly in demand. Cancun can now be reached daily, San José five times a week.

Berlin to become a new Eurowings base

Eurowings has made this announcement:

Eurowings is stepping up its commitment in Berlin and will open a new base at Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) on April 1, 2021. Eurowings had already emphasized the importance of the capital at the launch of the new airport in October 2020 and announced its intention to strengthen its position in Berlin. Now the airline is stationing three of its Airbus A320 aircraft at the new BER – just in time for the start of the world’s largest travel trade show, ITB.

For decades, the Lufthansa Group has reliably connected Berlin with Europe’s most important metropolises as well as long-haul destinations via Lufthansa’s major hubs in Frankfurt and Munich. In the meantime, the airlines of the Lufthansa Group have significantly expanded their market leadership at BER. With the opening of its base, Eurowings is also reacting to the withdrawal of international competitors who have largely left the German market in the wake of the crisis: “Others are leaving, we are staying here,” said Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof. Since the capital’s airport opened in October 2020, Eurowings has already taken off from Berlin more than 1,000 times. In February 2021, every third BER departure was a Eurowings flight.

Bischof describes BER and Eurowings as a “perfect match”: “Berlin is and will remain an absolute tourist magnet and one of the most exciting metropolises in Europe, both culturally and historically. So, it’s only logical that we, as Germany’s No. 1 tourist airline, expand our presence in the capital by opening our own base. We are very pleased to soon be able to fly residents of Berlin and Brandenburg to their well-deserved vacation after the end of the lockdown.”

Many Berlin pilots and flight attendants return to the capital city

Stationing own aircraft and corresponding Eurowings crews will create more than a hundred direct jobs for Berlin – and thus also the opportunity for many (ex-)Berliners to return home. Many pilots and flight attendants had to leave the capital in recent years in the wake of airline insolvencies or the withdrawal of a number of airlines.

“I’m glad to finally be back home, close to family and friends, thanks to the redeployment to BER. At the same time, I’m relieved not to have to commute to Stuttgart anymore,” says a delighted André Wetzel, flight attendant at Eurowings.

With the opening of the Berlin base in April, Eurowings will once again connect the capital with Cologne, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart up to three times a day – on many days even more frequently. The airline is focusing in particular on off-peak times, which are popular with travelers. As Germany’s largest vacation airline, Eurowings also has the most popular vacation destinations to Mallorca, the Canary Islands, Greece, Austria, Corsica, Croatia and Egypt in its program. The BER program in the summer flight schedule is supplemented by flights in the growing segment of family and home visits, for example to Beirut in Lebanon.

Aircraft operated by Eurowings will be positioned preferentially at Pier North of the new Capital Airport. Passengers thus benefit from short distances, boarding without bus transfers and a direct building connection to the Lufthansa lounge.

Eurowings enters the UK leisure market, will fly from Palma de Mallorca to Manchester and Birmingham

Eurowings has made this announcement:

Dreariness in Germany, holiday fever in the UK:

Eurowings is entering the British travel market in response to the surge in demand for flights between the UK and Mallorca. Germany’s number one holiday airline has an international base on Majorca and, for the first time in its history, will connect Manchester and Birmingham with Europe’s most popular Mediterranean island from the end of May. Entering the British travel market, Eurowings will initially fly holiday travelers twice a week from Birmingham as well as from Manchester to Mallorca and back. A further expansion of UK flights by Eurowings will be considered in the coming weeks.

Eurowings is offering services to customers in Great Britain since a run on holiday travel has already begun there. As soon as the date for the end of the corona shutdown was set, many Britons immediately secured flights to Southern Europe, mainly to Mallorca. Immediately after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s speech on opening steps, holiday bookings by travel agents rose in some cases by more than 600 percent compared to the prior week. Almost at the same time, Mallorca announced steps for opening restaurants and bars after recording significantly lower Coronavirus figures than before.

Eurowings is by far the largest provider of air travel between Mallorca and Germany – the flights are also known as the “Palma Shuttle”. The holiday airline of the Lufthansa Group will connect the Balearic island with 22 airports alone in summer 2021 from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. By adding Birmingham and Manchester, Eurowings will increase the number of Mallorca connections to 24 airports.

Photo of the Day: Eurowings thanks its employees with a special logo jet

Eurowings is thanking its employees for weathering the “COVID storm” that has severely impacted air travel around the world, especially leisure travel in Europe.

The pictured Airbus A320 D-AIZS has been rolled out of the paint shop at Southend with the extra titles (German on the left side, English on the right side) of “Fuelled by the World’s Greatest Team”, in recognition and appreciation for their work in 2020 regarding COVID.

As a thank you for 2020: Eurowings “gives” its staff their own aircraft

Eurowings has made this announcement:

The probably biggest Christmas present in the country is almost 40 metres long, twelve metres high and can fly at 870 kilometers per hour. The airline Eurowings surprises its 2,300 employees at the end of the year with a very distinct gift as a sign of recognition and appreciation for their commitment in the crisis year 2020: it dedicates a specially painted Airbus A320 from its current fleet to the staff and symbolically thanks the “best team in the world” in this way.

For the eulogy, Eurowings lets the Airbus A320 with the registration D-AIZS speak for itself: “Fuelled by?” is written in huge letters on the fuselage of the aircraft – and underneath: “The world’s greatest team.” The German airline is thus sending a widely visible signal for team play in time of crisis in two languages – German on one side and English on the other.

Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof: “Hardly any other industry has been hit as hard by the pandemic as aviation and tourism. Whether flight attendants, pilots or staff on the ground – they have all been unable to do their jobs as usual for months. The fact that Eurowings guests were able to take off at all this year is owed to the passionate commitment and high flexibility of all our employees. A remarkable team spirit drives us at Eurowings repeatedly and makes us stand up for each other in difficult times. That is why we are saying thank you in an extraordinary way in a likewise extraordinary year: with a team airplane for the entire staff.”

“Team Airplane” to be launched in the first quarter of 2021

The “Eurowings Team Airplane” will receive its special bilingual varnish during a regular maintenance stay in the first quarter of 2021 and will then be stationed on a rolling basis at the Eurowings bases in Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Mallorca, Vienna, Salzburg and Pristina.

Eurowings is thus the first German airline to dedicate an aircraft from its fleet with an exclusive design to its own employees. Special lacquering such as the black and yellow “Team Airbus” of the cooperation partner Borussia Dortmund or the “Europa-Park Plane” have been among the most popular photo motifs at Europe’s airports for years.

Eurowings flies to the top at new BER Airport

Eurowings made this announcement:

Just over a month after moving from Tegel to the new Berlin-Brandenburg airport, the Lufthansa Group is showing positive results. The airlines’ relocation went according to plan and operating procedures at BER are working very well with the current low traffic volume.

Lufthansa Group airlines are operating from Pier North in Terminal 1, which is a short walking distance from the Lufthansa Lounge and the new WorldShop flagship store.

The start of flight operations also went very smoothly. Currently, the Group’s airlines offer around 38 percent of all flights operating at BER. Out of a total of 1,700 departures and arrivals in November, around 650 were operated by the Lufthansa Group – that is over 400 flights more than the second largest operating carrier and over 500 flights more than the third largest at this airport.

Eurowings in particular has positioned itself strongly in the weak environment caused by the crisis-: When comparing individual Lufthansa Group airlines, with around 300 BER connections in November, this Lufthansa subsidiary rose to the top. . Eurowings flies at least three times daily to Cologne/Bonn, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart. Another focus of the airline is on flights to the Canary Islands and the flight schedules for December emphasize this trend.  By the end of the year, Eurowings alone will have completed over 1,200 flights to and from BER.

“The Lufthansa Group airlines connect the German capital reliably and safely with the world.  We are proud that people in Berlin and Brandenburg have placed their trust in us for decades. We will remain a partner to the region in the future and will expand our services from Berlin as soon as possible after the crisis has ended, because we know that the longing to travel is great,” said Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG and Chief Commercial Officer Passenger Airlines.

Since September, the Lufthansa Group has been the market leader in Berlin. Currently, five airlines of the Group fly to BER (Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, SWISS, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings). Air Dolomiti will also be adding BER to its summer flight schedule.

 

Eurowings takes off for the first time at the new Berlin Airport

Eurowings made this announcement:

Eurowings took off for the first time at the new capital city airport Berlin Brandenburg – three times in a row: on the morning of November 4 at 6.20 a.m., flights EW8058 to Cologne and EW8000 to Stuttgart took off. This was immediately followed by flight EW8040 to Düsseldorf at 6.30 a.m. This makes Eurowings the first airline in the Lufthansa Group to operate scheduled flights from the new capital city airport.

In domestic traffic, Eurowings currently connects the destinations Cologne, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart with the capital at least three times a day – on many days even more frequently. Despite a reduced flight schedule as a result of Corona, the airline is focusing on the off-peak hours, which are popular with travelers. The domestic German program is supplemented by weekly flights to the Canary Islands and the Greek Islands. Eurowings plans to gradually expand the BER program in line with market conditions from spring 2021 onwards.

Aircraft from Eurowings will preferably be positioned at the Pier North of the new Capital City Airport. Passengers will benefit from short distances, boarding without bus transfers and a direct building connection to the Lufthansa Lounge.

Eurowings resumes flights to the Canary Islands

Eurowings has made this announcement:

Welcome back to the Eurowings network: Germany’s leading vacation airline flies again regularly to the Canary Islands from November 7, 2020 following yesterday’s lifting of the travel warning. Due to the oceanic-tropical climate conditions, the islands of Lanzarote, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, La Palma and Gran Canaria are traditionally very popular destinations for Eurowings passengers in autumn/winter. Tickets to the five sun islands can now be booked again via eurowings.com or the Eurowings App – at special prices starting from 64.99 euros. Eurowings connects the Canary Islands again without a stopover from five German airports: Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Cologne/Bonn and Stuttgart.

“Welcome back”: special flight on November 1, 2020: Düsseldorf to Tenerife

Heads up, spontaneous Canary Islands lovers: Eurowings is celebrating the lifting of the travel warning with an ad-hoc special flight: the Lufthansa Group member takes off again from Düsseldorf to Tenerife for the first time on Sunday, November 1, 2020.

Eurowings introduces “temperature discount”

Eurowings has made this announcement:

As of now the largest German vacation airline Eurowings offers for the first time a so-called “temperature discount” on its website eurowings.com. The height of the discount is calculated according to the monthly average temperature in the respective country, which is advertised. The airline is thus defying the crisis in air travel with new services, entertaining campaigns and attractive offers.

No longer just dreaming, but booking today: Because the southern climate of Italy, which in September averages a pleasant 23.1 degrees Celsius, is particularly worthwhile for travel lovers today: with the newly introduced Eurowings “temperature discount”, guests who book a direct flight to Italy today will receive a flight discount corresponding to the average temperature of 23.1%.

All destinations in Italy that Eurowings flies to are included in the campaign: Cagliari, Bari, Naples, Venice, Lamezia Terme, Brindisi, Milan, Rome, Catania, Bologna and Olbia. Further information can be found at eurowings.com. The next country with the new “temperature discount” has already been selected – and will be published shortly.

With the Eurowings flexibility guarantee, Eurowings customers can change flights free of charge up to seven days before departure. Flights can also be flexibly rebooked at any time, for example if travel plans change.
