Eurowings Updates Service To North America and Mauritius For Winter 2018/19

For the Winter 2018/19 timetable, Eurowings has increased capacity on certain routes and altered frequencies on 2 destinations.

As far as the capacity increases are concerned, effective October 30 the A343 will replace the A333 on flights between Dusseldorf and Fort Myers. On October 28, the A343 will replace the A333 on flights between Dusseldorf and Miami.

The reason for the change is due to increased passenger demand for flights to warmer destinations during the Winter.

On October 28, service between Munich and Punta Cana will increase from 1 flight per week to 2 flights per week. SunExpress will operate those flights.

Beginning October 31, service between Munich and Mauritius will be reduced to 1 flight per week (previously 2 flights/week).
 

 

LUFTHANSA Europe Sale Features One Way Fares As Low As €35…….2 Days Only!

LUFTHANSA Europe Sale Features One Way Fares As Low As €35…….2 Days Only!

Lufthansa has launched a 48 hour fare sale that significantly discounts fares to most cities in Europe.    Though it’s a marketing gambit to advertise fares as ‘one way’, when you put together 2 one ways to make a roundtrip, the deal is still solid.

For example….

Frankfurt to Barcelona can be had for only €35 each way.    The same goes for Krakow, Catania, and Dublin among others.

Fares from Munich mirror the pricing from Frankfurt so there are several €35 deals from MUC as well.

Outside of the special €35 destinations, most other one way tickets to the rest of Europe range between €50 and €70 which makes the fare sale an attractive proposition in most cases.

This fare sale ends on February 25, 2018 at midnight CET.

Departures need to take place between March 3 and May 15, 2018.   Travel must be completed by May 17, 2018.   A blackout period between March 23 and April 9 is in place (Easter).    Tickets must be purchased 7 days prior to departure.
