Eurowings launches new connections to Beirut and Erbil


Lufthansa subsidiary expands its leading position in the segment of family and home visits

  • From 19 December 2020 from Berlin to Beirut
  • From 19 December 2020 from Düsseldorf to Erbil
  • From 22 December 2020 from Düsseldorf to Beirut
  • From 2 February 2021 from Stuttgart to Beirut

Eurowings will start new direct flights in December and will fly its passengers for the first time to Beirut in Lebanon and Erbil in Northern Iraq. The flights expand the offer in the range of "families and homeland visits", in which the airline already offers numerous flights for example to Greece, Croatia, Algeria or Turkey. Eurowings is leading within this market segment and is increasingly expanding its position with the new flights.

"Visiting families and friends is particularly valuable in times of crisis. People of all nationalities regularly seek closeness and personal exchange with their relatives. We make this possible with attractive non-stop connections to the respective home countries. We are seeing continued stable demand in this segment, even in the last weeks and months of the Corona crisis," said Jens Bischof, CEO of Eurowings.
