Lufthansa’s in-house LCC germanwings has launched three new routes from its Cologne/Bonn (CGN) base. Most significantly, it has taken over the London Heathrow (LHR) service previously marketed under the Lufthansa brand, but operated by bmi aircraft. With Lufthansa about to rid itself of the airline, it had to decide how to continue the route and has decided that germanwings should take over the three times daily service. Only last month, germanwings started its first flights to Heathrow from Stuttgart. Jerez (XRY) and Naples (NAP) have also been added to its Cologne/Bonn network, with the Spanish destination served weekly and the Italian destination served four times weekly. Naples will also be served this summer by airberlin. In Stuttgart (STR), germanwings has added flights to Venice Treviso (TSF), which it will serve with three weekly flights. It already serves Treviso from both its Cologne/Bonn and Hannover bases.
