Eurowings’ Munich base opens for business

Eurowings’ Munich base opens for business

We love our new Eurowings base! Celebrating the start of the airline’s 15 new routes from Munich were: Karin Naranjo, Senior Manager Business Development Customer Airlines, Lufthansa; Farnaz Hamidi-Zadeh, Eurowings Europe; Martin Laubental, Director Traffic Development, Munich Airport; Sebastian Iske, Ground Operations, Eurowings; Stefanie Zimmermann, Senior Manager National Marketing, Eurowings; Matthias Burkard, Press Spokesperson, Eurowings; Jana Gschwendtner, Area Manager Eurowings; and Eurowings Crew Member. Another nine new services are planned for next week.

  • Eurowings has opened a new base, with an initial 15 routes to be served from Munich (MUC). The average sector length of the 15 routes is 1,065 kilometres, with the shortest airport pair being the 488-kilometre link from its new German base to Geneva (GVA), while the longest is the 2,036-kilometre route from Munich to Faro (FAO). The average weekly frequency of the 15 routes is 3.6, with six of the new sectors being operated at five times weekly or more. Only two of the 15 airport pairs will not see any direct competition for Eurowings, with the 663-kilometre service to Amsterdam (AMS) offering the most intense competition, with the three incumbents providing a combined 87 weekly flights. In addition to the base opening, the carrier began a weekly (Saturdays) route from Vienna (VIE) to Marsa Alam (RMF) in Egypt on 1 April.
