In summer 2024, Eurowings passengers will have to expect higher ticket prices. Airline boss Jens Bischof explained on Wednesday in Cologne that the rising costs, especially government-influenced fees, would be passed on to customers.

These fees, which have almost doubled in Germany since 2019, include, among other things, passenger checks, air traffic control and the recently increased aviation tax. Further increases are already planned.

Bischof admitted that operating costs at Eurowings had also increased moderately, due to new collective agreements for all employee groups. Despite these challenges, the Lufthansa subsidiary was able to negotiate without strikes. Bischof did not provide specific figures for the price increases.

Eurowings expects a special business boom due to the European Football Championship in Germany from June. 70 special flights with a total of 13.000 additional seats have already been launched from European airports. This number could increase in the final rounds. In addition, higher utilization on regular flights is expected. However, Eurowings is not planning any additional domestic flights between the ten venues.

Bischof was confident that Eurowings will make a profit like last year. With a fleet of around 120 aircraft, the airline offers 13 percent more seats than in the previous year due to the rapidly growing demand.
