Low-cost carrier Eurowings will launch a new service between Dusseldorf and East Midlands airport from March 27.
Flights will operate six times per week, with weekday services departing Dusseldorf at 1125, and returning from East Midlands at 1225. On Sundays the service will leave Dusseldorf at 0650, and return from East Midlands at 0750.
The route will be operated with a Bombardier CRJ-900 aircraft, and Eurowings says that it will offer “perfectly timed feeder connections for the flight via Düsseldorf from Hamburg, Berlin/Tegel, Prague, Zurich and Milan”.
Lufthansa rebranded its Eurowings subsidiary in 2014 (click here for more details), repositioning the carrier as a low-cost long-haul proposition, and last year announced new services from Cologne to Boston, Las Vegas and Miami. These flights are scheduled to launch in May (see news November 18, 2015).
Lufthansa also began the process of folding its Germanwings brand into the Eurowings offering last year (see news April 2015).
