Responding to growing demand for corporate travel, the German low-cost carrier is increasing available flights to Europe’s major financial centres by 30%.
While the post-pandemic has been largely led by leisure traffic, with many taking the opportunity to finally do some travelling and get away for a holiday, business travel has been slower to rebound.
That is changing though and, against the backdrop of rising demand for business flights, Eurowings has increased its offer for business travellers with around 30% more flights compared with the previous year. Within this, Eurowings is expanding the capacity of its BIZclass product on numerous routes.
From its largest base in Düsseldorf, Eurowings plans to increase its popular connections to Berlin, Zurich and Milan by up to 10,000 additional seats. In addition, connections to Stockholm, Prague, Dresden, Birmingham, Geneva, Lyon and Salzburg will move to twice-daily.
At Cologne/Bonn, the increase in capacity focuses on the in-demand route to Berlin, where more than 6,000 additional seats went on sale just for September. Business passengers will have up to six daily departures available.
The key business route from Hamburg is Amsterdam, on which Eurowings is doubling its services. Flights to Milan will also be significantly increased. In total, Eurowings will have 50 destinations on offer from Hamburg.
Stuttgart will benefit from more than 150,000 additional seats for business destinations, including the connection to Bremen returning to the programme. Eurowings is also offering 33% more flights on routes direct to Budapest, Hamburg and Milan.
Finally, from Berlin, business travellers will have access to a daily Eurowings service to Stockholm for the first time, plus there will be high-frequency connections to Cologne/Bonn, Düsseldorf and Salzburg. All this will take the Eurowings flight schedule at Berlin to more than 200 flights a week.
