Eurowings takes a bite of the Big Apple: starting in April 2018, Eurowings, currently the fastest-growing airline, will head from Düsseldorf to the dream destination of New York on an almost daily basis. Customers can now book their tickets to the US metropolis for an unbeatable low price of EUR 199.99 via or the Eurowings app on smartphone and tablet.

Also new in the Eurowings route network: in the summer flight schedule 2018, there will be three flights a week from the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia to the two sunshine destinations of Miami and Fort Myers in Florida. Customers can now book budget-priced tickets starting from EUR 249.99 to the two sunny destinations in Florida to secure their personal guarantee of sunshine for next spring.

The first flight day for the new route to New York is 28 April 2018, which Eurowings will operate daily except Tuesdays. Flights from Düsseldorf to Miami will start on 4 May 2018, heading out thereafter on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The Eurowings route to Fort Myers will be operated for the first time on 3 May 2018 and thereafter on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The flights to Ft Myers and Miami will be operated by an Airbus A330-300 aircraft of Brussels Airlines. The New York JFK flights will be operated by an Airbus A340-300 aircraft of Brussels Airlines.

The three new direct flights from Düsseldorf to the USA are part of the airline’s ongoing expansion of its low-cost long-haul offering. Just recently, the first Eurowings long-haul flight took off on time from Düsseldorf to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. This route, along with the existing Eurowings flight to Cancun in Mexico, will be continued in the summer flight schedule 2018. Oliver Wagner, Eurowings Chief Commercial Officer, comments, “Our new destinations in New York and Florida are merely the start. In summer 2018, we’ll be increasing our fleet in Düsseldorf and thus expanding our leading position in Düsseldorf and North Rhine-Westphalia even further.

Eurowings is one of the pioneers of the low-cost long-haul and has already been operating successfully in this growth segment for two years. The airline flies to destinations all over the world, not only to dream beaches in the Caribbean but also to the Far East and the United States. The booking figures have been very good from the outset. According to Wagner, “The courage we’ve shown by investing heavily in the new business model of low-cost long-haul routes has paid off for us. Eurowings is now the fastest growing airline in Europe and is also seriously upping the ante on the long-haul.
