Eurowings adds new destinations
Eurowings, Lufthansa’s low-cost subsidiary, is also expanding its long-haul air travel in the winter schedules. The company will put a seventh aircraft into long-haul service from November 8 onwards, which will initially operate flights from Düsseldorf to Caribbean destinations.
Additionally, it will extend its budget long-haul product to Munich. Three Airbus A330s will be stationed at Munich Airport to operate these services from the end of March onwards.
Lufthansa’s new Berlin-New York and Düsseldorf-Miami routes will also be transferred to Eurowings in summer 2018, adding Berlin’s Tegel Airport to Eurowings’s long-haul operations.
