New Eurowings designed gate at Dusseldorf Airport

Eurowings passengers travelling to Berlin and Hamburg enjoy faster access to security checks and shorter distances to the gates at Dusseldorf Airport with ‘Wings Express’. In addition, the flights are always positioned at the same, nearby gates in Pier A so that only a few steps are required for boarding even after the security check. 

From now on, this is also visible from the outside at gate A25: this gate, branded in Eurowings design, is located just a few meters behind the security checkpoints and is reserved for Eurowings flights to Berlin and Hamburg. Travellers who have already checked in online in advance can reach their flight within 40 minutes.

Stuttgart Airport: new Senator Comfort Area

From now on, waiting will be even more comfortable for Miles & More passengers with Senator status at Stuttgart Airport: Whether travelling on business or on holiday, the new Senator Comfort Area offers free snacks and drinks at every seat, as well as power sockets at every seat and a view on the apron that invites you to linger. It is located in the security area of Terminal 3, level 4 near gate 310 and is available exclusively to all authorized passengers on Lufthansa Group flights between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. every day.

With Eurowings and ChatGPT to an affordable dream holiday......Tour operator brand Eurowings Holidays goes live with AI-supported travel advisor

Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof with the new AI chatbot
Eurowings goes ChatGPT: Eurowings Holidays, the tour operator brand of Germany's largest leisure airline, has gone live with an artificial intelligence (AI) powered travel advisor called “Holly”. It is the first online travel advisor that not only provides travel ideas tailored towards individual preferences within a very short time, but also enables the immediate booking of complete package holidays via the Eurowings Holidays website in the same step – a first in German tourism. The AI tool takes personal preferences into account and compares them with billions of flight and hotel combinations.

On the Eurowings Holidays website (German only), interested parties can now find tailor-made holidays that take special requests such as food preferences, sporting activities, excursion ideas or physical limitations into account right from the start. The more the digital travel consultant learns about their customers' wishes, the lower the risk of being disappointed on holiday. The technology finds exactly the travel package that best suits the preferences entered. The Eurowings Holidays AI travel advisor also takes, for example, hotel reviews into account, and immediately checks whether suitable adventure excursions or car hire offers are available.

Faster to the right destination with artificial intelligence

Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof: “We know that many travellers find the search for the right holiday destination time-consuming and tedious. With the digital travel advisor from Eurowings Holidays, the often complex path to the perfect holiday takes a shortcut and is radically simplified. Learning AI software recognises patterns and personal preferences for the benefit of our customers. Eurowings Holidays is thus increasing the quality of tourist offers and makes them much more individualised. We are delighted that we are taking on a pioneering role with these new-generation travel offers.”

The AI travel advisor “Holly” has been developed by the Hamburg-based start-up Honeepot. “The technology used ensures that customer data is fully protected and never passed on,” emphasises Honeepot CEO Torsten Ostmeier.

Eurowings brings back blind booking - flights to a surprise destination

From now on, travellers seeking adventure, spontaneous trips and short vacations will get their money's worth with Eurowings: The Lufthansa Group's value airline recently started offering the popular Blind Booking service again. With this flight offer, which has been popular in the past, travellers are surprised by their holiday destination. Customers do not find out where the journey will take them until after the booking has been completed. Interested parties enter the key data of their planned trip in the booking process. They can also exclude destinations in advance, for example if they have already travelled there. In principle, however, the more flexible the booking is, the cheaper the flight will be.

Eurowings relaunches booking offer for adventurous travellers

Offer for travellers seeking adventure, spontaneous trips and short breaks

With the newly launched Blind Booking offer, Eurowings is expanding its product portfolio for a target group that is open to new things and likes to engage in unfamiliar (travel) experiences. Flights to the random destinations are offered in the BASIC fare from Germany, Austria, Sweden, and the Czech Republic and are available from as little as 44 euros (one-way).

Selection from seasonal theme categories

Travellers can choose from various categories and thus narrow down the surprise destination thematically. Depending on the season, different headings are available, a first selection includes the following:

Europe Lies at your Feet
Around the Corner
Happiness is Coming to Shore
Into the Wild
Shop till you drop
Work hard, play hard
Pizza, Pasta & Amore
Greek Feast
Go East!
Nordic Explorer
Selfie Hotspots
No Rain in Spain
An Island in the Sun
Concrete Jungles
Christmas Markets
Be a Snowbird

This is how the booking works

Flights via Blind Booking can be booked from one day to 42 days before departure via After selecting the departure airport and the theme category, Eurowings customers are shown possible destinations, which – if desired – can also be deselected. In the next steps, the travel dates, including all details of the stay, can be entered. The minimum stay is 18 hours for one night, and 36 hours for two nights. In the next step, the interested passenger receives the final price. After payment, the surprise destination is displayed so that passengers have enough time to prepare for the trip. The booked flights cannot be rebooked or cancelled. Additional services such as additional checked baggage can still be booked afterwards.

In particular, Eurowings is expanding its flights to the green highlights in northern Europe, which are becoming increasingly popular.

Largest Eurowings medium-haul jet A321neo on more than 100 flights to Mediterranean and Canary Islands

D-AEEA has already flown holidaymakers to more than 16 holiday destinations.
Three more A321neo scheduled to join the fleet in the course of the year

The Airbus A321neo, the largest and longest Airbus medium-haul jet, which joined the Eurowings fleet around a month ago, has successfully completed its first 100 flights to the most popular holiday destinations in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands. The flight programme for the first weeks included 16 different destinations. Flight EW9856 from Düsseldorf to Palma de Mallorca was the first flight with which the latest addition to the fleet, registration D-AEEA, entered scheduled service on 20 July. Since then, the long "Mallorca Airbus" has flown many thousands of travel-happy passengers to their holidays.

The "Mallorca-Airbus": Highly efficient and quiet

The Airbus A321neo is by far the most efficient and quietest short-haul and medium-haul jet in the world and is the most visible sign yet of more than 50 sustainability initiatives at Eurowings. The aircraft has a significantly improved environmental performance compared to previous generations: 50 per cent reduced noise emissions, up to 20 per cent less fuel consumption and equally reduced CO2 emissions.

The seating capacity for up to 232 guests earns the newcomer the nickname "Mallorca-Airbus" - fitting for the Cologne-based company's well-known "Mallorca Shuttle". In the summer season, the A321neo will be increasingly deployed towards the Balearic island to serve the continuing high demand for the most popular destination in the Eurowings network. The Lufthansa subsidiary flies to the island's capital Palma up to 400 times a week in the high season. With the A321neo, Eurowings is continuing its fleet modernisation. In the course of the year, the airline will take delivery of another three aircraft of this type - the addition of a further A321neo is planned for February 2024. Together with the seven A320neo aircraft, the neo fleet of Eurowings will then comprise 13 aircraft.

Airspace Cabin for even more passenger comfort

The luggage compartments of the new Airspace Cabin have a 40 per cent larger volume and can even hold 60 per cent more suitcases, as these can be stowed vertically in the compartments. Another highlight is the new flexible lighting system, which is geared to passengers' biorhythms depending on the phase of the flight and time of day and illuminates the cabin in either warm orange or cooler blue tones.

To underline the importance of the A321neo for the topic of sustainability, Eurowings has made a comprehensive documentation of the introduction of the "sustainability ambassador": With more than 30 different cameras in a wide variety of positions and using state-of-the-art drones, a film crew followed the transfer of the aircraft from the Airbus factory site in Hamburg Finkenwerder to its home base in Düsseldorf. Thanks to close coordination with German Air Traffic Control and DUS Airport, a video was created that provides completely new perspectives on one of the most modern commercial aircraft in the world and sets new standards in communicating the topic of "sustainability".

Eurowings expands partnership with Smartwings

Eurowings pushes pan-European growth at its Prague base. Germany's largest leisure airline intensifies its cooperation with the leading Czech airline Smartwings. As part of a bilateral codeshare agreement, connections operated by Smartwings from Prague can now also be booked under Eurowings flight codes.

At launch, the codeshare cooperation between the partner airlines includes flights to the Mediterranean metropolis of Tel Aviv, to the historic city of Valencia in Spain, to Split on Croatia's Dalmatian coast and to Nice on the Côte d'Azur. There are plans to gradually expand the range of routes.

Eurowings customers will thus benefit from a wider range of direct connections from the Czech capital. Eurowings connections from Prague will also continue to be offered under Smartwings flight numbers and marketed via and other channels. The first phase of the codeshare agreement between the two airlines already started in March 2022.

"The cooperation between Eurowings and Smartwings strengthens our position at our European base in Prague and enables us to offer our customers even more travel options from the Czech Republic. Our partnership with Smartwings, which is well established in the Czech domestic market, strengthens our pan-European growth strategy," says Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof.

Smartwings flights from Prague to Tel Aviv, Valencia, Split and Nice now bookable under Eurowings flight number, with more destinations planned.

Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof: "Partnership with Smartwings strengthens pan-European growth."

Travel-intensive strong first half of 2023: Eurowings carries 300,000 passengers to/from Czech capital.

Eurowings returns to Nuremberg and Hanover

Germany's largest vacation airline is returning to Nuremberg and Hanover airports and significantly expanding its tourist services after the crisis. With the start of the 2023/24 winter flight schedule, Eurowings will fly to Gran Canaria, Hurghada and Marsa Alam as well as to Mallorca from the Franconian metropolis. From Hanover, the winter flight schedule includes the destinations Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Hurghada, Pristina and Mallorca.

In the 2024 summer flight schedule, the commitment will be strengthened, and travellers from Lower Saxony and Bavaria can look forward to many new nonstop destinations: for example, Eurowings will fly from Nuremberg to Heraklion three times a week. The new Greek destinations of Preveza and Rhodes will each be served twice a week. From Nuremberg, Eurowings will fly to the Balearic Island of Mallorca 14 times a week.

Eurowings to station Airbus A320 aircraft at new bases

CEO Jens Bischof: “Better connections between the regions of Lower Saxony and northern Bavaria and sunny destinations in southern Europe”

In addition to two weekly flights to Faro in Portugal and the new destination of Malaga (four times a week), the Eurowings program from Hanover places a clear focus on Italy: With Rome (four times a week), Catania and Naples (three times a week), Bari, Olbia and Lamezia Terme (twice a week each), Eurowings ensures good and direct connections to one of the most popular vacation destinations for North Germans. The summer offer from Lower Saxony's most important airport is supplemented by flights to Thessaloniki (twice a week), 14 weekly connections to Mallorca and the connection to Pristina (once a week).

“Out of the crisis, we have fundamentally changed Eurowings and developed into Germany's largest vacation airline,” said Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof. “We will now expand this position in a targeted manner and also strengthen ourselves very significantly at Nuremberg and Hanover airports. With our program of attractive direct flights, we will ensure better connections from Lower Saxony and northern Bavaria to the most popular sunny destinations in southern Europe in particular.”

As part of this growth, Eurowings will again station one aircraft each permanently at its new bases in Nuremberg and Hanover from the 2023/24 winter flight schedule. From summer 2024, the base in the capital of Lower Saxony will be increased by a further Eurowings aircraft.

Eurowings and Volotea form sales partnership

CEO Jens Bischof: “Significantly larger range of direct flights within Europe” Volotea CEO Carlos Muñoz: “Important step in our growth plans in Europe”
Eurowings and the Spanish airline Volotea have signed a special sales partnership that covers the sale of tickets for 150 European routes operated by both airlines on each other's websites. These include 104 routes offered by Eurowings and 46 by Volotea. As the route networks of the two airlines do not overlap, the partnership will result in a strong growth in-flight offerings, both on Volotea's website and for Germany's largest vacation carrier.

The connections also include eight new routes flown by Volotea that will connect German airports such as Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Stuttgart directly with French and Italian cities starting in late May and mid-October. As a result, Bordeaux, Lyon, Nantes, Florence and Verona will also be reached non-stop from Germany via Volotea going forward.

Jens Bischof, CEO of Eurowings: “The partnership with Volotea is another milestone on our way to strengthening the ‘Euro’ in the Eurowings brand name. From now on, our customers will benefit from a much wider range of affordable direct flights within Europe. In addition to this, we are significantly strengthening our sales power, particularly in southern Europe.”

Carlos Muñoz, founder and CEO of Volotea: “We are thrilled to make our partnership with Eurowings official and expand our reach to the German market, an important step in our larger growth plans in Europe. This agreement represents an exciting opportunity for Volotea to offer even more customers affordable, non-stop flights to explore new destinations across our extensive network.”

Eurowings Digital hires 150 new employees at Cologne site

A better customer experience creates a digital travel companion

Additional employees strengthen digital product development

Focus on digital customer touchpoints via Eurowings website and app

Developing products tailored to travellers, redesigning existing self-service options, and expanding the digital product range even further: To achieve these goals, Eurowings Digital is hiring 150 digital professionals this year. In particular, the wholly-owned subsidiary of the airline Eurowings is looking to hire talents in the areas of e-commerce, software development and digital product & customer experience. “The combination of business and IT skills in integrated in-house teams makes all the difference,” says Michael Erfert, Head of Sales & Distribution at Eurowings and Managing Director of Eurowings Digital.

“With 300 digital experts going forward, we are continuously investing in a state-of-the-art platform that offers passengers improved products and services along the entire travel chain,” adds Johannes Hansen, the second Managing Director of Eurowings Digital and CIO of Eurowings. Inspiration for the next trip and a simple search function for affordable flights and prices are just as much a part of the digital product range as services for travel preparation, such as online check-in or the option to reserve a time slot for the security checkpoint. During the trip, customers can receive up-to-date information about their itinerary on request and can flexibly adjust their bookings via extensive self-service options, whether in the event of flight delays and cancellations or their own changes to travel plans.

In the future, a special focus will be placed on personalization in order to offer customers an individualized travel experience for vacation and business trips. The product range will also be gradually expanded to include travel packages from Eurowings Holidays, flights from partner airlines, and other ancillary services. These include, for example, options for the sustainable air travel, but also digital booking of all types of group travel, payment with miles from the Miles&More frequent flyer program via ‘Cash&Miles’ or the new corporate program ‘EW4Business’.

Eurowings Holidays expands....

Eurowings Holidays, the tour operator brand of Eurowings, which is operated by the HLX Group Vacation is expanding its offering of holiday packages.

Growing brand benefits for tourism comeback.
Eurowings Holidays targets 1,000 vacation guests per day in the current year.

Eurowings Holidays covers the entire range of travel preferences, from city breaks and beach vacations to all-inclusive and family vacations and last-minute offers. The advantage for travelers: Eurowings Holidays combines know-how from two areas – an efficient airline and efficient tour operator. In doing so, Eurowings works closely with the HLX Group of Karlheinz Kögel, who looks back on 35 years of experience in travel sales and tourism and is considered a pioneer of “dynamic packaging” – the flexible combination of different travel services.

“Since the end of the Covid pandemic, we have seen a significant increase in bookings via Eurowings Holidays,” says Michael Erfert, Head of Sales, Distribution & Digital at Eurowings and Managing Director of Eurowings Digital GmbH. “We want to use this upswing to establish ourselves among the top 10 German tour operators in the coming years. To this end, we are currently recruiting a large number of IT and marketing experts at Eurowings Digital in the Cologne startup campus Carlswerk – 30 of around 150 planned new hires will work exclusively on the expansion of Eurowings Holidays alone.”

“Nothing will remain as it was – the traditional sales channels will change. Through digitalization and artificial intelligence, airlines and also hotels will be able to go completely new ways. With Eurowings Holidays, we will link these channels,” explains Karlheinz Kögel, who has been running the tour operator brand Eurowings Holidays with his HLX Group since December 2019.

Targeted customer approach via digital channels

In the future, Eurowings is set to play an even greater role in its partnership with HLX: for example, the airline's digital division will take over web development, marketing and data analysis going forward. In addition to this, the Eurowings Holidays offering will be be integrated even more deeply into the company's own homepage This will make it possible to offer customers fully comprehensive, attractive travel packages in addition to flights. Flexibility is also an important plus with Eurowings Holidays: the booked vacation can be rebooked free of charge up to 14 days before the start of the trip and can also be cancelled for a small fee of 50 euros.

Eurowings doubles destinations from Berlin

Eurowings is taking off from the capital - just in time for the world's largest travel trade fair, ITB: Flight EW8536 to Malaga will open a new chapter for Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER) on 26 March at 5.35 am. Just in time for the Easter holidays in Berlin and Brandenburg, Germany's largest holiday airline is significantly expanding its range of attractive direct flight destinations at BER. Travellers will then be able to choose from 30 destinations with Eurowings, twice as many as before.

As part of the largest network expansion of the year, Eurowings is particularly expanding its services to Northern Europe: From the end of March 2023, the Lufthansa Group airline will connect the German capital non-stop with Gothenburg, Helsinki and Copenhagen. Heading south, Eurowings will in future offer direct flights from Berlin to the new destinations Graz, Ibiza, Nice, Porto and Zakynthos. At the same time, the airline is significantly increasing its connections to existing destinations: for example, the most popular island among Germans - Mallorca - will be served up to three times a day in future, for a total of around 20 times a week. The portfolio also includes more direct flights to the Canary Islands, such as Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife.

"Our growth in Berlin is an example of the first summer without travel restrictions and contact bans. Air traffic and tourism are breathing a sigh of relief – finally holidays, finally ITB again," says Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof ahead of the start of the world's largest travel trade fair in the Berlin exhibition halls. "As Germany's largest holiday airline, we belong to the capital, because it is an absolute tourist magnet and one of the most exciting major cities in Europe. But we also bring a lot to the capital. Passengers from Berlin and Brandenburg can look forward to numerous new Eurowings destinations that are at the top of the wish list of German vacationers.

The first ”Mallorca Airbus” has arrived for Eurowings

Airbus' largest medium-haul jet, with 230 seats, now serves popular holiday destinations such as Mallorca, Crete and the Canary Islands.
Eurowings to receive delivery of ten Airbus A321 aircraft in the next few months
Fleet swap with Lufthansa: The first A321ceo is already wearing Eurowings colours

Eurowings is relying heavily on Airbus A321 aircraft in the summer, internally nicknamed the ”Mallorca Airbus”: Germany's No. 1 holiday carrier will deploy Airbus' largest medium-haul jet specifically to top holiday destinations in order to better serve the high demand to Palma de Mallorca, Crete or the Canary Islands, for example. With around 230 seats, the A321 can carry about a third more passengers than its A320 family relative.

Four brand-new A321neo join the Eurowings fleet in summer
First travel season without restrictions generates strong catch-up effects
A321 brings significantly more capacity per flight to top holiday destinations

The first A321ceo, which is coming from Lufthansa as part of a fleet swap, is already wearing Eurowings colours. After the end of the transformation work, six A321ceo are to be successively deployed in Eurowings flight operations from May 2023. In addition, four brand-new Airbus A321neo will join the fleet by the end of 2023. They are part of a roughly 1.5-billion-euro investment package in 13 jets of the Airbus ”neo” family. The ”neo” are considered the most modern, efficient and by far the quietest medium-haul jets in the world. All A321s will be operated by Eurowings in a 16-seat BIZclass configuration.

2023: Comeback of the freedom to travel

With the additional capacity, Eurowings is responding to the noticeably strong pent-up demand – especially for holiday travel. For the first time, there will be a year without travel restrictions, and there will no longer be a test and mask requirement. For many travellers, a reliably plannable and, above all, relaxed holiday was not possible for years – this is different in 2023 with the comeback of freedom to travel and also reflected in the increasingly long-term bookings showing confidence in air travel.

With more than 140 destinations in 37 countries, Eurowings offers an attractive flight programme with a total of more than 380 different routes, seamlessly continuing the pre-Covid travel season 2019. Holiday favourites in 2023 will again be Greece, Italy and Spain: Eurowings offers direct flights to around 50 regions in these countries only. The clear front-runner remains the Balearic Island of Mallorca, which Eurowings flies to more frequently than any other destination, with around 400 flights a week from over 20 airports.

Eurowings expands in Prague after successful first year

Eurowings has been connecting the Czech capital Prague non-stop with European metropolises and holiday regions for a year now. Starting with four destinations for the winter flight schedule 21/22, travelers could already choose from 14 different destinations in the summer of 2022. The Lufthansa Group airline quickly established itself in the Czech market and met with great customer interest right from the start.

Three new routes in the 2023 summer flight schedule

CEO Jens Bischof: "Prague and Eurowings are a match"
Czechs' New Year's Eve trips lead to metropolises

Eurowings CEO satisfied with first year

"Prague and Eurowings are a match. We dared to take the step to the Czech Republic in a still very uncertain situation, but it is becoming more and more clear that people all over Europe now want to travel again after the Corona restrictions," says Jens Bischof, CEO of Eurowings. "Our concept as a value airline is also working: Czechs like to fly cheaply, but they also value our additional services such as flexible rebooking up to 40 minutes before departure or our Priority Service."

Jaroslav Filip, Director of Aviation Business at Prague Airport, also welcomes the Lufthansa subsidiary's commitment. "In the summer, Eurowings brought many guests to popular destinations and also expanded the offer in the winter. After the first year, it is clear that this is a successful cooperation, which we will continue to expand in the future.

Outlook: New destinations in summer 2023 and New Year's Eve trends

Evaluations show that Czech customers preferred to fly to Spain with Eurowings in the summer. Alicante on the Costa Blanca, Barcelona and Europe's most popular sunny island Mallorca were particularly popular. The most popular metropolis in 2022: the Danish capital Copenhagen.

In summer 2023, both holiday and business travellers from Prague will be able to choose from an even wider range of Eurowings services. New in the programme are connections to Geneva, Rhodes and Corfu. More frequent connections will be offered to Copenhagen (eleven times a week), Stockholm (six times a week), Malaga (four times a week), Athens and Alicante (three times a week). The programme now comprises a total of 18 routes, which are served by three stationed aircraft. Prices start from 39.99 euros.

But many Czechs don't wait until summer for their next trip, they also take a plane on the occasion of New Year's Eve. The most popular destinations over the New Year are the metropolises of Barcelona, Rome and Stockholm.

Eurowings significantly expands its offering at Graz Airport

12 holiday and city destinations in the program as of Summer 2023
Graz to become new Eurowings base
Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Stuttgart connected with high frequency

Eurowings is significantly expanding its presence at Graz Airport and will be expanding its range of attractive direct flight destinations in the summer of 2023. With the new destinations Chania (Crete) and Larnaca, as well as Hurghada, Karpathos, Corfu, Kos and Rhodes, seven destinations in the popular holiday destinations Greece, Egypt and Cyprus are on the schedule. An expansion of capacity to Mallorca is in the planning stage.

In addition to the expansion towards the south, Eurowings is increasing its range of city connections to Germany: the Lufthansa subsidiary will connect Graz, the capital of Styria in Austria, with Berlin and Hamburg in the 2023 summer flight schedule. Together with the connections to Düsseldorf and Stuttgart, travellers from Graz will then be able to choose from up to 25 weekly flights to the German city destinations. Business travellers in particular will benefit from greater flexibility on their trip.

In the course of this expansion, Eurowings will also station an aircraft at Graz Airport, making Graz  the eleventh Eurowings base and part of the growth course of the leading value carrier. The Eurowings offerings for the summer can be booked from Monday, 19 December 2022. Flights in the BASIC fare are already available from € 39.99 for a one-way flight.

"We are delighted to be offering a wide program of attractive destinations from Graz next summer, which are at the top of many holidaymakers' wish lists," explains Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof. "At the same time, we are connecting Styria more strongly than before with the most important German metropolitan areas. Holidaymakers and business travellers alike benefit from our value concept, which addresses the core needs of today's air travellers with flexibility, comfort and sustainability. Our expansion is also a strong commitment to Graz and the entire region."

"Hamburg and Berlin represent a great enhancement of our flight schedule, which will also benefit Styria as a tourism and business location," explain Wolfgang Grimus and Jürgen Löschnig, Managing Directors of Graz Airport. "The intensive economic relations between Germany and Styria form the basis for a corresponding volume of business travel to/from Berlin and Hamburg. At the same time, we expect strong impulses in city travel, both in incoming and outgoing tourism. With this broad flight programme, Eurowings will become one of our strongest partners."

Holding GrazCEO Wolfgang Malik, as the owner's representative, points to many years of experience, according to which the strategic importance of a regional airport can be increased enormously if criteria such as "central location at the hub of international transport transversals", "competition from airline alliances with international hub feeder functions" or "airline base for direct service to destinations" are fulfilled. Malik: "Our airport in Graz, as the largest regional airport in the Alps-Adriatic region, fulfils these requirements excellently with the commitment of Eurowings to establish its 11th base in Graz.

Centrally located, the stationing of an efficient and modern Airbus in Graz not only strengthens the popular connections to southern Europe, but also brings northern Germany closer to Styria, which is particularly attractive for business and tourism. Malik: "I am confident that Graz will soon return to the "highs" of the ever-popular "airport of short distances".
