  • Eurowings will fly out of Weeze from 14 June
  • New domestic flight to Munich offered six days a week

COLOGNE/BONN, WEEZE – Eurowings goes Weeze: as of Wednesday, 14 June 2017, Eurowings will further expand its offering in North Rhine-Westphalia and in future will fly to Weeze airport. The airline is setting up a new domestic route to Munich with flights six days a week. From 19 June, there will even be two flights a day from Monday to Friday. The airline is thus adding yet another domestic destination to its attractive portfolio of routes.

The outbound flight will leave Munich for Weeze at 20.20 Monday to Friday, with arrival on the Lower Rhine scheduled for 21.30 in each case. An early morning flight will be added from 19 June. The additional outbound flight to Weeze will then take off at 6.25 on Mondays and at 6.35 Tuesday to Friday, with arrival in Weeze at 7.35 and 7.45 respectively.

The return flight from Weeze will leave at 22.00 during the week, arriving in Munich at 23.15. From 19 June, the additional return flight in the early hours of the morning will take off from Weeze at 8.15 on Mondays and at 8.25 Tuesday to Friday, arriving in Munich at 9.25 and 9.35 respectively.

On Sunday, the flight from Munich will take off at 19.05, landing in Weeze at 20.15. The return flight from Weeze is scheduled for 21.00, with landing in Munich planned for 22.10.

This evening flights can be booked online at www.eurowings.com or via the Eurowings app.

CEO Oliver Wagner says, “I’m very pleased that Eurowings will be establishing a new base in Weeze. We see the airport as an important partner and the additional flights to the Bavarian capital are certainly a win for North Rhine-Westphalia. They will also meet the longstanding demand of many of our customers.”

Ludger van Bebber, CEO of Airport Weeze, says, “We’re delighted with Eurowings’ commitment to our airport. The early morning/late evening flight to Munich which our new airline partner is operating from Monday to Friday meets the explicit needs of businesses in our region. With cheap airfares, Eurowings also provides excellent travel opportunities for those seeking a short break. Last but not least, from June onwards Bavarian business travellers and individuals will be able to fly nonstop and in comfort to the metropolitan area of the Lower Rhine and the adjacent Netherlands.”

Only recently, the airline opened up a new base in Munich and now offers an attractive portfolio of routes to sunny holiday and short break destinations as well as city destinations for both private and business travellers from Southern Germany. 

With the entry of Eurowings in Weeze, NRW’s largest airline is reinforcing its offering in the region. 

Since acquiring 33 aircraft from its cooperation partner Air Berlin, Eurowings is currently growing faster than any other airline in Europe. Integration of the leased aircraft together with their crews has been running smoothly and almost silently for weeks. By early May 2017, some 31 aircraft in the Airbus A320 family will fly in the Eurowings livery, with two more to follow in 2018.
