COLOGNE/BONN – Had enough of rain and snow? Eurowings has one of the broadest selections of long-haul flights on offer: 16 new non-stop connections from Germany to dream destinations in the Caribbean, with prices starting at 199.99 euros for a one-way ticket. The German airline anticipates a significant increase in passenger volume at its two future long-haul bases and has expanded its services accordingly: by this winter, Eurowings plans to carry almost 40,000 passengers per month in its long-haul jets, making the Lufthansa subsidiary not just the third-largest low-cost airline in Europe, but also one of the major players for long-haul flights from Europe.
Oliver Wagner, Managing Director and Chief Commercial Officer of Eurowings: “Going forward, we will be the gateway to the Caribbean for North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria – at extremely attractive prices.” Non-stop flights for under 200 euros – leisure travelers from Germany and Austria have never been able to get to the Caribbean this inexpensively, quickly or comfortably.
Flights can now be booked from Munich to Punta Cana and La Romana in the Dominican Republic, Havana and Varadero on Cuba, Montego Bay on Jamaica and Bridgetown on Barbados. The routes to Central America are rounded off by Cancún in Mexico. From Düsseldorf, Eurowings will be taking off on new routes to Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, La Romana and Samaná in the Dominican Republic, Havana and Varadero on Cuba as well as to Montego Bay on Jamaica and Bridgetown on Barbados. Flights to Cancún in Mexico are also available from the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. The non-stop intercontinental flights are complemented by a broad range of feeder flights from a large number of airports in Germany, Austria and the rest of Europe.
For millions of Germans and Austrians, the Caribbean is the ultimate dream destination – and more and more people can make this dream a reality thanks to affordable flights. For years now, the region has had double-digit percentage increases in visitors from German-speaking countries. And the world’s largest tourism trade fair, the ITB 2018 in Berlin, just demonstrated that the Caribbean is an extremely popular destination for long-distance travel. Eurowings is consistently meeting this increased demand and will be taking many tourists to white Caribbean beaches from now on. The airline anticipates an additional long-term expansion of its flight services and is aiming for a sales volume of approximately five billion euros and over 40 million passengers in 2018.
Tickets can be booked for all the flights, for instance online at www.eurowings.com or through the Eurowings app. Travel operator Eurowings Holidays also offers affordable package tours with Eurowings flights on its homepage.
