Eurowings will launch its base in Prague in October
The low-cost carrier Eurowings is preparing to launch a brand new operating base in Prague in October. The carrier will park two planes in Prague from October 31 and offer direct flights to many top European destinations, including Barcelona, Milan, Copenhagen, Athens and the Canary Islands.
Expanding connections in Eastern Europe
With Eurowings looking to expand its network, the airline will establish a base in Prague in October. Eurowings will first park two Airbus A320s in Prague before adding a third A320 by summer 2022. The move is a sign that airlines have growing confidence in the resurgence of the aviation industry this year.
This will be the first time Eurowings has established a base in the Czech Republic, with the airline ready to offer “direct connections from Prague to attractive business and holiday destinations across Europe.The low-cost airline, a subsidiary of Lufthansa, currently serves more than 100 destinations, mainly vacation spots.
Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof said:
“Eurowings will offer non-stop services to Czech business and leisure travelers, just in time for the revival of air traffic after the long Corona crisis. We will focus on providing a local touch combined with top notch user-friendly services at our Prague base that will clearly distinguish Eurowings from low cost airlines. “
With its new operational base, Eurowings claims to have created more than 100 new jobs and given new impetus to the Czech aerospace industry. Once the new operational base in Prague is operational, it will be Eurowings’ 10th European operational hub.
Direct flights to the main European destinations
The new Eurowings base will connect Prague with many leading European destinations, both for business and for leisure. As of October 31, destinations include:
- Tel Aviv
- the Canary Islands
Travelers will be able to book their fares through the Eurowings website or app from 22 June. One-way tickets start at EUR 29.99 ($ 36). Initially, two A320-200s will serve the Prague base, with plans for a third A320 to be stationed there by summer 2022.
One of the most punctual carriers in Europe
With a solid experience in punctuality and customer service, Eurowings has received several awards recognizing its excellence. Most recently, the airline won the triple gold medal at the German Customer Awards 2021 for “best value for money”, “best customer satisfaction” and “best customer service”.
One of the carrier’s most recent innovations is its mid-seat policy, which has been popular with travelers. The airline allows passengers to reserve an intermediate seat, either for reasons of hygiene or personal comfort, for as little as EUR 10 ($ 12). Eurowings says “this new option is already a bestseller on Eurowings flights after a short period and a benchmark for the industry.“
According to ch-aviation, Eurowings has a total of 91 aircraft in its fleet. 52 of them are of the A320-200 type with an average age of 9.6 years. The airline also has a firm order for 10 A320-200neo.
