Eurowings is expanding new nonstop service from three major German Cities to Las Vegas. This will create a new large gain in German tourism for the Las Vegas travel market next year. It will also provide some additional transatlantic nonstop travel options for locals living in Las Vegas to travel for vacation to Europe without having to connect through expensive and tedious LAX.
Eurowings’ New Las Vegas flight Details:
As of April 6, 2020, Eurowings will launch 2x weekly flights between Munich and Las Vegas. These flights will operate with the following schedule on Mondays and Fridays:
Munich to Las Vegas departing 11:45AM arriving 2:40PM
Las Vegas to Munich departing 4:30PM arriving 12:55PM (+1 day)
This will complement Eurowings’ existing Dusseldorf to Las Vegas flight, as well as the Frankfurt to Las Vegas route that they’re launching as of October 2019.
Lufthansa’s long haul Munich expansion
Lufthansa will be launching three new routes as of the summer of 2020 — two will be westbound and one will be eastbound. All three routes will be operated by A350-900 aircraft. These feature a total of 293 seats, including 48 business class seats, 21 premium economy seats, and 224 economy seats.
Eurowings’ long haul Frankfurt & Munich expansion
This is a bit odd, since not too long ago I was under the impression that Lufthansa Group was planning on discontinuing long haul flights with Eurowings. Apparently not, and quite to the contrary, the airline is poised for significant growth. All routes will be operated by A330 aircraft, featuring up to 270 seats.
Currently, the growing European airline offers flights to destinations all over the world, from the Caribbean to the Far East and the United States.
Eurowings manages a fleet of 120 aircraft, consisting of 46 Airbus A319-100, 47 A320-200, seven Airbus A330-200, two Airbus A340-300, and 19 Bombardier Dash 8 Q400, which are wet-leased by SunExpress Deutschland, Brussels Airlines, and LGW, respectively.
Eurowings, Lufthansa’s new low-cost carrier, will offer twice-weekly flights on Mondays and Fridays through the end of October aboard Airbus A330 jetliners equipped with high-definition monitors, said the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
Germany is the seventh-largest source of international visitors to Las Vegas, LVCVA officials said, adding that the new flights are projected to generate $15.1 million in direct visitor spending.
