Airlines Eurowings increases Düsseldorf – New York route
Eurowings has announced, that it will offer new frequencies on the route from Düsseldorf, Germany to New York, United States.
As of December 1, 2018, Eurowings will fly six times per week to New York – Newark (EWR) in addition to existing connections to New York – John F. Kennedy (JFK). The EWR run has previously been operated by Lufthansa. For the first time now, Eurowings passengers are able to fly to both New York area airports from Düsseldorf.
Flights to EWR will be performed with an Airbus A330, which will take off from Düsseldorf every day except Tuesday. EW1112 will depart the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia at 11:45 a.m. and will touch down in Newark at 2:50 p.m. local time. Return flight EW1113 will leave New York at 4:50 p.m., leading to an arrival in Düsseldorf the next day at 6:05 a.m..
Eurowings has stated, that passengers can use the codeshare agreement with Lufthansa to connect to Düsseldorf from various destinations in the carrier´s route portfolio.
This shows the intention of Eurowings to further increase its interest in Düsseldorf Airport. After Air Berlin´s end of operations, the carrier has taken over several long-haul routes to the United States. Currently, Eurowings has stationed 40 aircraft at Düsseldorf and operates 1,700 flights per week to 95 destinations.
All Eurowings Airbus A330 aircraft have a fully-featured Business Class installed with 30 full flat seats. On the carrier´s previous Business Class, 18 passengers could be transported. Seven Airbus A330-200 are currently in the fleet. Recently, Eurowings has added capacity of a sole Airbus A330-300. This aircraft is being operated by Brussels Airlines. Brussels also operates two Airbus A340-300 for Eurowings.
In addition, the Eurowings fleet consists of 40 Airbus A319s and 47 Airbus A320s. These aircraft are Eurowings´ backbone of European Low-Cost operations. Currently, the carrier flies to 153 destinations in over 40 countries.
