Eurowings Coming To Frankfurt

Eurowings Coming To Frankfurt

Beginning in Summer 2018, Lufthansa’s low cost carrier, Eurowings, will begin serving Frankfurt as the LH Group seeks to stem the competition coming from other European LCCs.

In an article published in Airliners.de, Eurowings boss Karl Ulrich Garnadt stated that due to the pressures seen coming from Ryanair and others, it made good business sense to counter the new competition.     Ryanair plans to begin service to Frankfurt this spring.

Such a move is made easier due to the fact that Eurowings will inherit 33 aircraft in the coming months after Lufthansa agreed to lease the aircraft from Air Berlin.   This is of course in addition to the aircraft that will join Eurowings after the acquisition of Brussels Airlines closes.  In all, the Eurowings fleet will grow to nearly 120 aircraft making it easier to operate from large hubs and to take on their competitors directly.

Previously, Eurowings announced that it will  begin flying from Lufthansa’s other Mega-Hub in Munich in March.   The initial timetable calls for flights to 32 cities throughout Europe, mostly towards ‘Holiday’ type destinations.
