germanwings gains Stuttgart – Bilbao service from Lufthansa
Lufthansa has passed its Stuttgart (STR) to Bilbao (BIO) route over to its low-cost subsidiary germanwings with effect from Sunday 3 June. The route will now be operated four times weekly with A319s. When Lufthansa operated the route, it typically operated between five and seven weekly flights using 100-seat Fokker 100s operated by Contact Air. However, Lufthansa has decided to end all contract agreements with Contact Air by the end of the current summer season. The airline has been providing up to six Fokker 100s operating under the Lufthansa Regional brand. Bilbao becomes germanwings’ fifth route from Stuttgart to Spain as it already serves Barcelona, Ibiza, Malaga and Palma de Mallorca.
