germanwings picks-up two more Lufthansa routes to London Heathrow
germanwings, has assumed flying responsibilities on 13 January for two more Lufthansa routes, namely its connections from Berlin Tegel (TXL) and Hamburg (HAM) to London Heathrow (LHR). The former route will be flown with 20 weekly services, while the latter with 19; both are flown by the airline’s A319s. British Airways provides competition on both routes, flying from its main hub to Berlin 31 times weekly and to Hamburg 26 times weekly. The germanwings operations are replacing double-daily services on both routes which were previously operated by its mother airline, Lufthansa. The two new routes join the LCC’s existing services from Stuttgart (started February 2012) and Cologne Bonn (March 2012) to Heathrow, also transferred from Lufthansa.
