Eurowings adds flight from Frankfurt to Salt Lake City



The Lufthansa group has revealed some seasonal itineraries for summer 2022 for its new leisure subsidiary, Eurowings Discover. There is a particularly interesting addition …

The new Eurowings Discover routes for summer 2022

These flights are all expected to be bookable from Wednesday May 26, 2021. Initially they will display Lufthansa flight numbers and planes, but they will actually be operated by Eurowings Discover, so you can expect the schedule to be updated over time to reflect this.

What is Eurowings Discover?

In a certain context, Eurowings Discover is Lufthansa’s new long-haul leisure airline to be launched in 2022. The airline will operate flights from Frankfurt and Munich, although the exact details of the airline remain to be seen. see, like which planes will be used and which product on board will be like.

My understanding is that Eurowings Discover previously had the working name “Ocean”, which Lufthansa was trying to acquire an air operator certificate for some time ago.

Lufthansa’s low-cost carrier strategy has been a burning disaster over the years, to say the least. Lufthansa has continuously turned around in terms of strategy for its subsidiaries, notably Eurowings, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa CityLine and SunExpress.

I guess Eurowings Discover will look a lot like the old Eurowings long-haul operations.

Lufthansa confused about low cost carriers

This road from Salt Lake City is interesting!

Most of the routes make perfect sense (although it seems to me that the Fort Myers route is not the right kind of season, and based on my preferences, it is difficult to qualify Fort Myers as a ‘dream destination’. , but I’m not a retired German, and I’ve also lived in West Florida for much of my life), although there is one route that certainly stands out – from Frankfurt to Salt Lake City .

Historically, Salt Lake City’s only transatlantic flights have been on Delta, to Amsterdam, London and Paris. The only foreign long-haul airline that has tried to fly to Salt Lake City is KLM, but it is also a Delta joint venture partner. These routes make sense, given the airport’s huge hub for Delta.

While this route is unconventional, I imagine Lufthansa thinks there are enough people who want to visit Utah National Parks because the airline won’t have much connectivity.

Germans love the outdoors, and German leisure airlines have done well with nice seasonal routes, like Frankfurt-Anchorage, Frankfurt-Fairbanks, and even Frankfurt-Whitehorse (such a hit-and-miss flight I had to take it).

It almost reminds me a bit that Air France recently announced a new Paris-Denver route, given that Denver is a United hub.

Utah has several great national parks

At the end of the line

Eurowings Discover plans to launch flights in the summer of 2022. Ultimately, there is nothing very exciting about it as such, as it is just a rebranding of Lufthansa’s current long-haul low-cost airline.

What I find interesting, however, is that Eurowings Discover is planning to add a Frankfurt-Salt Lake City route. This is not an itinerary that I expected to see from a Lufthansa Group airline.

What do you think of this new route from Frankfurt to Salt Lake City?
