Germany’s Eurowings enters UK leisure market

German leisure carrier Eurowings is entering the British travel market “in response to the surge in demand for flights” between the UK and Majorca.

It will offer services from Manchester and Birmingham to the popular Mediterranean island from the end of May.

Eurowings will initially fly twice a week from Birmingham and from Manchester.

A further expansion of UK flights will be considered in the coming weeks.

Eurowings said the flights are a response to the surge in enquiries and bookings in the UK travel trade after the government revealed its roadmap out of lockdown.

Also, Majorca has announced plans for opening restaurants and bars as its Covid-19 rates are declining.

Eurowings claims to be “by far the largest provider of air travel” between Majorca and Germany, saying its the flights are also known as the “Palma Shuttle”.

By adding Birmingham and Manchester, Eurowings will increase the number of its Majorca connections to 24 airports.
