Germanwings to introduce new UK routes
Tags: Cologne, Germanwings, Lufthansa, Stansted, Stuttgart
Regular London-based travellers to Stuttgart will have a wider variety of flights to chose from next month as Germanwings introduces a new service from Heathrow Airport.
The Cologne-based low-cost airline, which already flies to Stansted, Manchester and Edinburgh, will offer 21 flights a week from Heathrow from the start of February. It also provides flights to Dublin during the summer.
In July, Germanwings will bolster its schedule out of Manchester by adding five weekly Stuttgart flights to its roster. It already provides four weekly flights to Cologne from Manchester.
The deal means that the airline will fly to all of parent company Lufthansa’s European destinations from Stuttgart. The move also goes a long way to reinforce the airline’s commitment to its UK-based customers.
Germanwings announced that the new services were only made possible because it has been working more closely with Lufthansa.
Flights from Stuttgart will leave for Heathrow Airport at 7.20am, 12.40pm and 5.10pm, with flights departing from Heathrow at 8.40am, 2.05 pm and 6.45pm. The last Sunday flight from Heathrow to Suttgart will leave at 6.35pm.
A statement by the company said it was “improving its offering via a consolidated network that sees Germanwings fly to all Lufthansa European destinations out of Stuttgart as of summer 2012″.
