germanwings has had another busy week, launching another six new services. Notably the route between Berlin Tegel (TXL) and Catania (CTA) has been transferred over from parent Lufthansa. Only one of the routes faces direct competition. However, if the airline had started these routes during the S13 season, then the four routes at Hannover and Stuttgart would have all faced direct competition from the likes of Germania and SunExpress. However, during the quieter winter season this is not the case.
