German low-cost carrier Eurowings announced last week that it would be expanding its operations in three German cities and one Austrian destination. A statement published by the Lufthansa Group airline says that due to further easing of travel restrictions, it will be adding flights from Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn, Stuttgart, and Salzburg.
With the COVID-19 pandemic easing in Europe, the Düsseldorf-headquartered carrier says that vacation travel is now possible again. And not only vacation travel, but foreigners living in Germany can now visit family and friends in their home countries. In addition to summer sun holiday destinations, Eurowings has added flights to Eastern Europe, Southeastern Europe, and North Africa.
