Fly to the city that never sleeps even more frequently from now on – with Eurowings from Düsseldorf. As of 1 December 2018, the airline will be offering six flights per week to New York’s Newark Airport (EWR) in addition to its existing connections to JFK. Eurowings is taking over the connection which had previously been offered by Lufthansa, allowing passengers flying with Eurowings from the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia to choose between the two New York area airports for the first time.
The flights with an Airbus A330 to Newark (EWR) will take off from Düsseldorf every day except Tuesday at 11:45 a.m. with the flight number EW 1112 and land in Newark at 2:50 p.m. local time. The return flight will leave New York as flight number EW 1113 at 4:50 p.m. local time, arriving in Düsseldorf the next day at 6:05 a.m. Tickets to the “Big Apple” can already be booked online at www.eurowings.com or through the Eurowings app for smartphones and tablets, with prices starting at 179.99 euros one-way. Eurowings customers in Düsseldorf also benefit from a codeshare agreement with Lufthansa that makes fast and convenient transfers to destinations in the network of the parent company possible.
Eurowings is expanding its long-haul program at Düsseldorf’s airport with the additional flights to New York. The 2018/19 winter flight schedule takes Eurowings passengers from DUS to New York, Fort Myers and Miami (USA), Cancun (Mexico), Punta Cana and Puerto Plata (Dominican Republic), Varadero and Havana (Cuba), Montego Bay (Jamaica) and Bangkok (Thailand). Düsseldorf is already Eurowings’ biggest location. The Lufthansa subsidiary offers its passengers a bigger selection of routes here than at any other airport. The largest airport in North Rhine-Westphalia has become the home base for 40 Eurowings aircraft, with more than 1,700 flights per week leaving for 95 destinations in Germany and around the world.
Fully-featured Business Class on all flights to NYC
All flights from Düsseldorf to New York and all other destinations in the US (Miami and Fort Myers, and Las Vegas as of Summer 2019) offer a BIZclass for the most discerning passengers – a fully-featured Business Class with “full-flat” seats: at the touch of a button, the comfortable seat transforms into a bed that is two meters long and completely horizontal (“full flat”). Eurowings is the only low-cost carrier to offer such a high-value product. Due to the high demand for a Business Class on the route to Newark, Eurowings is using an aircraft with a larger BIZclass on this route, making 30 BIZclass seats available to passengers instead of the previously offered 18.
