This delicious-looking cake was baked to herald the start of Eurowings’ first flight from Palma de Mallorca to Friedrichshafen. The twice-weekly operation will face competition from Germania’s daily service.
- Eurowings began three new services from three different bases this week. On 4 July it commenced a twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays) route from Palma de Mallorca (PMI) to Friedrichshafen (FDH). Served by a mixture of the LCC’s A320/A319 fleet, the 1,053-kilometre sector will face direct competition from Germania’s existing daily service. The next day, Eurowings started a weekly (Wednesdays) A320 rotation to Kalamata (KLX) from Vienna (VIE). Again this route will be up against incumbent carriers, with Austrian Airlines and NIKI both flying the 1,304-kilometre city pair on a weekly basis. Finally on 7 July, the carrier’s long-haul operation began a twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Fridays) route from its Cologne Bonn (CGN) base to Orlando (MCO). The US service will encounter no direct competition and becomes the airline’s fourth route to the country joining existing flights Las Vegas, Miami and Seattle-Tacoma. All US sectors are flown by the LCC’s 310-seat A330-200s. See how Friedrichshafen and Orlando airports FTWAs compare to others from around the world.
