The low-cost German airline has launched flights from Berlin and Stuttgart
Lufthansa Group's low-cost carrier Eurowings has launched its first direct flights between Germany and Dubai in the UAE.
The non-stop flights link Germany’s capital Berlin (BER) and its automobile hub Stuttgart with the UAE.
With a flight duration of around six hours from Berlin or Stuttgart to Dubai, one-way fares start from AED879 (US$240) from Berlin and AED719 (US$195) from Stuttgart.
Eurowings' UAE routes operate four times a week to Berlin and twice a week to Stuttgart, with early-evening departures from Dubai at 6pm and arrival in Germany before midnight.
The airline issued a statement, saying: "Travellers from Berlin will be able to fly to Dubai non-stop on Wednesday and Saturday as of 1 November. From Stuttgart, the highly efficient Airbus A321neo will take off on Thursday and Sunday beginning on 29 October. From the end of November onward, the travel options from BER will be doubled: Eurowings will start to bring the capital’s residents to the sunny paradise on Monday and Friday as well."
Eurowings' introduction of the new routes will support the UAE’s growing tourism market as it evolves as a prime destination for leisure and business travellers from Germany, particularly during the peak winter season.
In summer, Germany is a leading destination within Europe for GCC outbound markets.
Commenting on the launch, Eurowings CEO and chairman of the Board of Management Jens Bischof said: “With Dubai’s unparalleled attractions and growth as a thriving hub of tourism, leisure and business, coupled with the surging volumes of air passengers between the UAE and Germany, we aim to be a pivotal player in the ever-expanding travel landscape connecting Europe to the UAE and the broader Middle East.”
