German Federal Statistical Office: Eurowings ranks second in flight bookings
Which airlines are used most frequently in Germany? This question was investigated by the German Federal Statistical Office. In a recent survey, Eurowings took second place behind the parent company Lufthansa. This means that almost every fourth passenger opted for the Lufthansa Group's value airline. To the details (German only)

Airbus fleet: Second Eurowings A321neo enters scheduled service
The second A321neo entered scheduled service on Sunday, 17 September with a flight from Dusseldorf to Palma de Mallorca. Just one month ago, on 17 August, Eurowings transferred the 
D-AEEB from Hamburg-Finkenwerder to Dusseldorf, where it was prepared for scheduled service by Eurowings Technik. As the most modern and efficient aircraft, the “Mallorca airbus” also takes on the role of a “sustainability ambassador”. A camera team accompanied the transfer of the D-AEEA from the Airbus factory in Hamburg to its new home base in Dusseldorf. To the video

Commitment to Cologne as location: Joint campaign with Cologne/Bonn Airport
Together with Cologne/Bonn Airport, Eurowings is making a declaration of love to its Cologne location and the people of Cologne in a current marketing campaign. The campaign, which is on display in Cologne at present, includes four humorous motifs in Cologne dialect (“Himmel un Ääd”; “Rut un Wiess”; “Zoröck en d'r Dom Rep”; “Kölner Highe”) which emphasize the local roots of Eurowings and show that the value airline is an integral part of the cathedral metropolis of Cologne.

The attention-grabbing motifs are played on various advertising media: for example, on billboards, so-called large-scale billboards, and mega lights, as well as on “Edgar Free Cards”, free postcards that are available to take away in restaurants and clubs. Part of the campaign as well: three giant posters at the central train station and Friesenplatz in downtown Cologne. Another highlight are four KVB streetcars with Eurowings and Eurowings Holiday branding, which will be on the road in the Cologne city area for a year.
