COLOGNE/BONN, DUSSELDORF – Launched only recently in Dusseldorf, Eurowings continues to expand its long-haul offering at its largest location. In the winter, the airline will fly to Bangkok four times a week instead of twice. And in the winter flight schedule, a further weekly departure will supplement the offering to Varadero in Cuba making that three flights a week. For this, Eurowings will base an additional Airbus A330 long-haul jet at Dusseldorf – this brings the intercontinental fleet up to eight aircraft in the upcoming winter flight schedule.
Following the addition of new connections to the USA a few days ago, the airline is now utilising further growth options at Dusseldorf airport close to the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. In the future, Eurowings will concentrate the majority of its intercontinental fleet here, Munich being the second location for intercontinental routes. Both airports also offer quick and easy access to the Eurowings long-haul route network with attractive feeder flights from many other cities in Germany and Europe. Attractive prices, comfortable seats, high-quality catering and an in-flight entertainment system with Internet access make travelling with Eurowings a very special experience even on long-haul routes.
This year, in addition to the rapidly growing offering of short and medium-haul routes, the market leader at Dusseldorf airport will be able to offer 1,700 more long-haul flights per year from here and thus carry around 450,000 additional passengers. In the winter flight schedule 2018/19, the Eurowings Group’s long-haul fleet in Dusseldorf will include eight jets. Eurowings currently operates 40 aircraft at Dusseldorf airport, which fly more than 1,750 times a week to 95 destinations in Germany, Europe and around the world.
From 29 October 2018, the market leader in Dusseldorf will then launch additional flights to Bangkok on Monday and Wednesday. Flights were previously scheduled on Thursday and Sunday. Eurowings will supplement the offering between Bangkok and Dusseldorf by two corresponding return flight days on Tuesday and Thursday. This means that passengers travelling to and from Thailand will have more flexibility when planning their trip. Eurowings’ partner Bangkok Airways also offers a large number of connecting flights within Thailand and Southeast Asia. The new departures can be booked on the Internet at eurowings.com or via the Eurowings app.
From 3 November 2018, Eurowings will also launch an additional flight to Varadero in Cuba, thus expanding the already strong offering still further. The additional flight on Saturday brings the flight schedule to Varadero up to three flights a week.
