According to today's Global Peace Index 2018, Iceland, Europe's second largest island state, is the world's most peaceful country – and Eurowings flies its guests twice a week (Thursdays and Sundays) from Cologne/Bonn and Hamburg to Reykjavík, Iceland's capital, home to over 60 percent of Iceland's population. Iceland has one of the highest living standards and per capita incomes in the world and attracts its visitors with a breathtakingly beautiful landscape: The numerous, partly active volcanoes, rivers, lakes and waterfalls fascinate guests and are definitely worth a visit.
Austria is in third place in the current World Peace Index, Portugal in fourth place and Denmark in fifth place – all destinations in Eurowings' extensive European network.
The World Peace Index classifies the peace of nations by relative comparison and is published by an international body of peace experts, peace institutes, expert commissions and the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies of the University of Sydney, in cooperation with the British journal 'The Economist'. The World Peace Index currently divides 162 countries into 5 main categories, with category 1 for the most peaceful region and 5 for the region with the highest violence statistics based on the school grading system.
