Lufthansa Group (Frankfurt) has issued this statement about additional long-range routes for the new Eurowings:
The new Eurowings is further expanding its long-haul routes. Starting this winter, Eurowings customers will be able to fly to another attractive long-haul destination. The first flight from Cologne/Bonn to Puerto Plata in the Caribbean will take off on November 7, 2015. Flights will depart from Cologne/Bonn once a week, on Saturdays. The port city of Puerto Plata is situated on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic.
Eurowings is also increasing its number of flights to Dubai and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Due to strong demand, the new Eurowings will fly to Punta Cana three times a week from November 7, 2015. There will now also be three flights a week to Dubai from December 17, 2015.
The expansion means that the new Eurowings will now offer a total of six long-haul destinations in the winter season.
