Lufthansa’s new airline Eurowings Discover ready for launch
(MENAFN – Bangladesh Monitor) Berlin: Lufthansa Group’s new airline, Eurowings Discover, announced that its Air Operator Certificate was issued on June 16. This means the airline is now ready to go, with its first flight scheduled to leave Frankfurt, Germany on July 24.
The foundations for Eurowings Discover were first laid last year when Lufthansa announced it was looking to launch long-haul leisure equipment named Ocean. This year it was revealed that this brand will now be known as Eurowings Discover, borrowing the name of the low-cost subsidiary Eurowings.
The airline will initially rely on Airbus A330s.
The first operation will be to Mombasa, Kenya, with a flight to Zanzibar, Tanzania. Mombasa sits on the coast of Kenya and is the country’s main tourist destination due to factors such as its Indian Ocean beaches and diverse marine life.
In addition, the semi-autonomous region of Zanzibar has long been a hot spot. Thus, Eurowings Discover will start its operations with such popular choices for its launch.
Eurowings Discover will not focus on a single region, with summer services to Punta Cana, Windhoek, Las Vegas and Mauritius on the maps. It also has the ambition to continue to develop over the months, the airline said in a statement.
From next March, it will fly to the US sites of Fort Myers, Panama City and Salt Lake City. Then, from summer 2022, he will set sail for Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Additionally, the airline is considering crewed charter Air Dolomiti on select continental flights.
Many regions are still experiencing a significant drop in travel for long-haul passenger activity. But there is light at the end of the tunnel, especially with the EU’s restrictions easing for those who are fully vaccinated. So, this might be a good time to launch a transporter.
