Düsseldorf/München/Košice  – Now we're finally getting started: Košice is now part of the Eurowings route network. Four times a week - Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays - Eurowings flies from Düsseldorf to the second largest city in Slovakia. Košice is offered from Munich on Fridays and Sundays. The special feature: the new destination has been chosen as the desired destination in the Eurowings voting "You vote, we fly" by 320,000 users on Eurowings' Facebook page. Košice won the final round against Cork in Ireland and Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance. During the voting phase, the Eurowings voting became a social media hit on the web within a few days. With the campaign, Eurowings has reached a total of over ten million users so far.

Eurowings flies the route from Düsseldorf under flight number EW9990 with a Dash Q400 aircraft - and travellers benefit from attractive feeder connections to and from Düsseldorf. An Airbus A320 will be used on the route from Munich under flight number EW1968. Tickets for the one-way route from or to Košice can be booked from 19.99 euros at www.eurowings.com or the Eurowings App.

„The new Eurowings flight connections represent an enormous gain for Košice Region“, says Lenka Vargová Jurková, Executive Director of Košice Region Tourism. „We expect that in addition to business travelers, a great portion of passengers will be constituted by visitors travelling to our destination for pleasure, since our region has a lot to offer.“

Not only the town of Košice, but also the region has many highlights to offer: The Spiš Castle - one of the largest castles in Europe, the Tokaj wine region with its specialities or the Slovak „Paradise National Park“ with its caves, which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. For sports enthusiasts, there is another very special occasion: the 2019 Ice Hockey World Championship in Slovakia, where the German team will compete in the preliminary round in Košice.
