EUROWINGS Introduces New Routes

Over the last few days, Eurowings has updated their timetable to reflect the launch of several new routes for the Fall/Winter of 2017/18.    The routes are primarily seasonal, either bringing passengers to warmer climates or taking them to winter hot spots for skiing.

Some of the flights will be operated by the aircraft that have been wet-leased by Lufthansa from Air Berlin, while others will fly under Germanwings flight numbers and aircraft.

The new routes are as follow:

LUFTHANSA Updates Long Haul Aircraft Assignments For Fall/Winter 2018

LUFTHANSA Updates Long Haul Aircraft Assignments For Fall/Winter 2018

Before Spring ever arrives (at least north of the Equator), LH is already looking to the end of the year and has tweaked aircraft assignments on a handful of long-haul routes.   This of course is done primarily because of demand shifts based on the season as well as maintenance schedules for certain aircraft types.

The changes are as follows:

  • Frankfurt – Atlanta beginning October 29 will see the A343.
  • Frankfurt – Bangkok effective October 28 will see the A380 instead of the 744.
  • Frankfurt – Chennai effective October 29 will see the 343.
  • Frankfurt – Dallas effective October 29 will see a mix of the A333 and A343.
  • Frankfurt – Hong Kong effective October 29 will see the 747-8i instead of the A380.
  • Frankfurt – Male effective November 1 will see the A333 in stead of the A343.
  • Frankfurt – Philadelphia effective October 29 will see the A343.
  • Frankfurt – Rio de Janeiro effective October 28 will see the 747 instead of the 747-8i.

LUFTHANSA Announces 3rd A350 Destination……

LUFTHANSA Announces 3rd A350 Destination……

Delhi, Boston……..

And now:

Mumbai!

Beginning sometime during the second quarter this year, Lufthansa will begin using their A350s on flights between Munich and Mumbai.   Currently the route is flown by an Airbus A330.

Flight information remains the same.   Flight 764 will depart Munich at 11:35a, arriving in Mumbai at 11:55p.   Flight 765 will depart Mumbai at 1:25a, arriving in Munich at 5:50a.

Look for more destinations to be announced soon.  Lufthansa likes to rotate new aircraft to a variety of new destinations, plus more A350s will be joining the fleet allowing LH to expand their reach.    I expect a few East Coast USA destinations to be next in line to see the A350.

Once LH announces the exact date for Mumbai, I’ll pass that info along.
