Eurowings, an offshoot of Lufthansa and one of Germany’s leading low-budget airlines, announced last week that they have added a new route to the U.S., and they are doing so in one of the country’s top destinations for German tourists — Las Vegas.
With tickets starting as low as 199 euro ($225) for a one-way ride (note: we are not able to find that low price), Eurowings is making it clear that their budget airline status isn’t going anywhere. In fact, the airline is promising a wide set of amenities for travelers, including wifi and their WINGS Entertain media system that they claim is the “leading in-flight entertainment system”.
CEO Oliver Wagner spoke of Eurowings’ new American destination as a result of the airline seeing huge growth in the low-cost long-haul market. “More than 40 million people visit the fascinating city of Las Vegas every year – and hopefully in the future more and more of them will touch down there with Eurowings.”
For now, travelers who hope to book a ticket on a flight do have a small limitation in their planning. Flights between Cologne/Bonn and Vegas will only take off on Monday’s and Friday’s, and how long this deal will last is up in the air as well. In their announcement of the route, Eurowings stated that the limited service will run up to November 7, 2017.
