Germanwings, the low-cost airline for Europe, has announced that it will be working even more closely with its parent Lufthansa next year, improving its offering via a consolidated network that sees Germanwings fly to all Lufthansa European destinations out of Stuttgart as of summer 2012.
As a result Germanwings will be launching a new route between Stuttgart and London Heathrow Airport from February 2012, and between Stuttgart and Manchester from July 2012. The carrier will offer five services a week from Manchester to Stuttgart, and 21 flights a week from London Heathrow.
The news affirms the carrier’s commitment to the UK and Irish markets. Germanwings already serves London Stansted, Manchester and Edinburgh all year round, and Dublin during the summer months, and is reviewing additional options within the market for future opportunities.
