- Eurowings has added a link between Düsseldorf (DUS) and New York JFK (JFK) to its burgeoning network. Flight EW1100 left for the first time on 28 April, operating daily except Tuesdays. The 6,014-kilometre sector will be flown by a leased A340-300, and faces no direct competition. Eurowings currently operates 40 aircraft at Düsseldorf. For the W18/19 schedule, the long-haul fleet of Eurowings at the German airport is expected to grow to seven aircraft. On the same day the airline commenced a weekly (Saturdays) service from Berlin Tegel (TXL) to Jersey (JER). Operated by LGW’s Q400s, the summer seasonal route faces no direct competition.
