- Eurowings commenced operations on its latest transatlantic route on 1 December, with the carrier taking over from Lufthansa on the 6,035-kilometre link between Düsseldorf (DUS) and New York Newark (EWR). It should be noted that the low-cost unit is no stranger to the market, with it already offering a six times weekly rotation between Düsseldorf and New York JFK. The carrier will offer five weekly flights between Düsseldorf and Newark using its 283-seat A330-300s, operated for the carrier by Brussels Airlines. No other airline will link Düsseldorf and New York this winter, giving Eurowings a monopoly in the market where it will offer 11 weekly flights.
