Amsterdam – With Eurowings from Salzburg to the canal city
From December 1, Eurowings will include the Dutch capital in its 2023/24 winter flight schedule. The Lufthansa subsidiary will then fly twice a week from Salzburg to Amsterdam. Eurowings is thus expanding its winter program to include the multifaceted Dutch metropolis in addition to flights to Germany, Egypt and the Canary Islands.

Fleet growth: Eurowings takes delivery of second A321neo
The A321 fleet is growing: with D-AEEB, Eurowings recently took delivery of its second A321neo from Airbus. Transferred from Hamburg Finkenwerder to Dusseldorf, it is now being refurbished at Eurowings Technik. The ‘Echo-Bravo’ is expected to take off with guests on board at the end of September. D-AEEB is neo number nine of a total of thirteen neos.

First electric tug in operation for Eurowings in Palma
Eurowings handling company Wings Handling Palma has added the first all-electric towbarless aircraft tug to its fleet of currently six tugs. With up to 30 towing jobs, the tug TPX-100-E from manufacturer TLD pushes the Eurowings aircraft out of the parking stands towards their take-off or rolls to the next parking position with the aircraft picked up.

“With a current fleet of about 80 specialized ground service equipment motorized units, out of which more than 30 are already ‘emission free’, this is an additional step towards the compliance of Wings Handling with the 2030 environmental agenda of the Lufthansa Group and the Spanish airport state operator Aena. This unit has become an absolute favourite of our staff”, says Raúl Aguado, General Director Wings Handling Palma.

More than 100 new flight attendants in Mallorca 
The Eurowings team continues to grow – Germany's leading vacation airline is recruiting staff in Germany and at its European bases. The current frontrunner is the base in Palma de Mallorca with more than 100 new hired cabin crew members only in the last twelve months. Eurowings is thus on the edge of breaking the threshold of more than 5,000 employees – a record level.
