The new Eurowings is preparing for the start of its long-haul flights in November 2015.
For this purpose the first long-haul plane, an Airbus A330-200, was lacquered in the new Eurowings design.
The plane left the paint shop in Taipei, Taiwan, in the colours of the new Eurowings earlier and is being transferred to Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg for the installation of the cabins.
The expected arrival time is 7 pm local time. A second plane of the type A330-200 is to follow in a few weeks.
The Airbus with identification D-AXGA will start on November 2nd 2015 for the new Eurowings from the airport Cologne/Bonn with inter-continental flights and will include Varadero on Cuba for the first time.
Eurowings is initially starting its long-haul offering with two A330-200 planes from Cologne/Bonn.
The planes are operated by SunExpress Germany, a joint venture between Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines.
For the 2015/2016 winter season the new Eurowings offers a total of six long-haul flights, including popular destinations in the Caribbean (Puerto Plata, Punta Cana, Varadero), in Thailand (Phuket, Bangkok) as well as Dubai.
