Eurowings and Laudamotion have finalized a framework agreement stating that Laudamotion will operate up to eight Airbus A320-type aircraft for Eurowings in a limited-duration wet lease. 

The cooperation will begin when the summer flight schedule goes into effect and is currently set to run until the end of May 2018.

Laudamotion and Eurowings will be looking into a possible extension of the cooperation over the next few weeks.

The additional capacity from Laudamotion will reinforce the already rapid growth of Eurowings: According to the airports association ADV, the overall market only grew by 2.2 percent in February, while Eurowings expanded by a whopping 44 percent over the same time period.
