Eurowings expands summer holiday flights for 2017 season

Eurowings is working consistently on further expansion of its route network so as to offer passengers further attractive options for their holidays.

Three new routes from Cologne/Bonn, Hanover and Vienna will complete the offering of the quality low-cost carrier from the Lufthansa Group in the summer 2017 flight schedule.

Flights between Cologne/Bonn and the Greek island of Karpathos are new to the route network.

They will be available every Monday from June 5th.

Eurowings will take off for Greece at 04:35 with the return flight leaving the island at 09:35 local time and touching down again in the Rhineland at 12:20.

Karpathos is the second largest of the Dodecanese islands after Rhodes and its main town is Karpathos, formerly also known as Pigadia.

As the tourist offering grows, places such as Lefkos on the west coast, Amopi and Arkasa in the south and Kyra Panagia on the east coast are becoming increasingly important.


As of May 5th, Eurowings will also offer a new flight connection between Vienna and the Greek island of Santorini.

An Airbus A320 will take off from Vienna on Thursdays and Sundays at 06:35 or 12:15.

The Sunday flight back to Vienna will take off at 10:40 with the Thursday flight leaving the Greek island at 16:20.

Santorini is approximately 100 kilometres from Crete in the south of the Cyclades islands.

The volcanic island is not only a popular stopping point for cruise ships but is also very popular with individual travellers.

The island is particularly noted for its Greek hospitality and rich culinary offerings.

In addition to the larger hotels on the island’s flat beaches, Santorini also has many smaller hotels and guest houses.

On May 21st, Eurowings will also launch a new holiday connection from Hanover, offering a flight to Cagliari on Sardinia every Sunday.

The quality low-cost airline will take off from Hanover at 12:00 with the return flight from Cagliari airport scheduled for 15:25.

Cagliari, the largest city and capital of Sardinia, is located in the south of the island.
