Eurowings takes over the Dusseldorf – Newark route

2 operated by Brussels Airlines, to be replaced with newer Airbus A330-300s

Eurowings has made this announcement:

New in the Eurowings long-haul portfolio: from December 1, 2018, the airline will fly to Newark (EWR) six times a week. This means that Eurowings is now offering two attractive connections from Dusseldorf to the Big Apple just in time for Christmas shopping. Eurowings passengers can already fly to John F. Kennedy Airport five times a week.

To mark the new route to Newark, Eurowings is sharing tips on activities and exciting locations in the wintry metropolis and idea for passengers with excess luggage to bear in mind for a stress-free flight after a successful shopping trip.

Getting the Christmas magic bug

At the end of November, the huge Christmas tree in front of the Rockefeller Center is officially lit up during a festive ceremony. Every year, thousands of people gather around the Rockefeller Plaza or follow the event live on television. But even away from this hotspot, the city is magnificently illuminated and beckons you to enjoy a winter shopping trip. Insider tip: Dyker Heights Christmas Lights in Brooklyn.

Shop till you drop

New York is considered to be a shopping mecca all year round but at Christmas time the metropolis excels itself, whether you fancy vintage shopping in Soho or strolling around the big department stores. A whole floor of Macy’s is turned into Macy’s Santaland – in honour of Santa Claus who visits at this time of year – and maybe here some of your long-held shopping wishes will come true. The most beautiful decorative displays can be admired at Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel, Tiffany’s and Lord & Taylor – all located on Fifth Avenue.

Winter Wonderland: Ice skating and holiday markets

Ice skating is one of the most popular winter sports and also great fun for beginners. The famous Wollman Rink in Central Park is open from October and skates can be hired on site. There is also a small ice rink at the Rockefeller Center. What’s special about this: visitors to New York can go skating under the Christmas lights at night. Then they can warm up with a hot drink at one of the many holiday markets, such as at Columbus Circle. The magnificently decorated Christmas markets offer not only delicious things to eat but also many pretty souvenirs.

Tips and tricks for excess luggage

After a prolonged shopping trip, suitcases are often bursting at the seams. Good preparation ensures a stress-free return journey: of course, extra luggage such as suitcases full of gifts or oversized souvenirs may be taken on board at Eurowings but should be registered in advance via the Call Center. Passengers can read up on the costs in detail in the schedule of charges.

Basically, at Eurowings, each passenger may carry one item of hand luggage on board with a maximum weight of 8 kg and maximum dimensions of 55 x 40 x 23 cm. In addition, a further small item of hand luggage is permitted (e.g. laptop bag, handbag, briefcase, folder satchel, etc.). In the regular SMART fare option, each passenger may additionally register a suitcase up to 23 kilograms. Liquids of all kinds may only be carried on board in containers with a capacity of up to 100 millilitres and they must be placed in a transparent, resealable bag. Eurowings provides more information about luggage at eurowings.com.

As a further pre-Christmas highlight, from mid-December Eurowings will inspire its passengers on board for their Christmas shopping in New York. In cooperation with Cologne-based start-up Sugartrends, a marketplace for local retailers, the airline showcases the best shops and trendy gift ideas from the Big Apple in a magazine which can be found in the seat pockets. Passengers can connect to the Internet on board their long-haul flight to New York, enabling them to browse and purchase the products of hip New York boutiques at Sugartrends.com. On arrival in New York, they can personally pick up the products purchased on board in the actual stores.
