The Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings Europe will take off again on June 27, 2020 at 7 a.m. after a three-month flight break. The “first flight” will be on the Palma de Mallorca-Hanover route. Initially, the Spanish base will restart with two Airbus A45s.
From there, destinations such as Berlin, Bremen, Dresden, Hanover, Leipzig, Karlsruhe / Baden-Baden, Munich, Münster-Osnabrück, Nuremberg and Saarbrücken are served. In Austria, Eurowings connects Salzburg and Innsbruck. The number of aircraft that will be reactivated is to be increased gradually.
In addition to Palma de Mallorca, Eurowings Europe also has bases in Vienna and Pristina. The one in Vienna was defacto closed with the abandonment of numerous routes or the handover to the sister company Austrian Airlines. It has not yet been communicated when Pristina and Salzburg will resume operations. It is also not yet clear what effects the termination of the wet lease, which was briefly flown for Austrian Airlines, will have on the Eurowings Europe staff stationed in Vienna.
"We are really happy that Eurowings Europe can take off again," says Robert Jahn, Managing Director of Eurowings Europe. “I would like to thank our guests for their patience and understanding in this difficult phase. And I would like to especially thank our Eurowings Europe team, which had to endure a lot of uncertainty and show perseverance over the past few weeks. We are all the more pleased that we can now start again and be there for our holiday guests. "
