Eurowings enters 10 new city pairs

Only one of Eurowings’ 10 route launches was started by its low-cost long-haul arm, connecting Cologne Bonn and Cape Town. Ulrich Stiller, VP Sales & Marketing, Cologne Bonn Airport and Thomas Labonde, VP Marketing and Customer Relations, Eurowings were on hand at the launch on 5 November to cut the wine-inspired cake.

Although it is launching four UK routes from Salzburg in W17/18, the particular service being started by Eurowings this week was the twice-weekly operation to London Heathrow. Services to London Stansted began last week, with Manchester and Birmingham being added in December.

  • Eurowings has commenced nine short- and medium-haul routes from seven of its German and Austrian bases this week, as well as a weekly (Mondays) long-haul service from Cologne Bonn to Cape Town (CPT), the German airport’s first destination in South Africa. Of the nine shortest sectors, the smallest is the 919-kilometre route from Düsseldorf (DUS) to Zagreb (ZAG), while the longest is a 3,574-kilometre city pair from Hamburg (HAM) to La Palma (SPC) in the Canary Islands. The average weekly frequency of these nine airport pairs is just 1.33, and six of them will encounter incumbent carriers, with the Hannover (HAJ) to Gran Canaria (LPA) route being the most competitive with 10 weekly frequencies being offered by TUIfly (seven) and Condor (three).
