Second home: opening of short-haul base in Munich
Less than a year after Eurowings Discover took off on its inaugural flight in July 2021, Lufthansa's leisure carrier is now opening its own short-haul base at Munich Airport. The airline will fly from Terminal 1 in Munich, where both, the check-in counters (Z127 - Z138) and the airline's offices are located.
Since March 2022, the leisure carrier has been flying out of Munich to three long-haul destinations. Since May, Air Baltic has been operating short- and medium-haul flights as a wetlease for Eurowings Discover. On June 1, the first Airbus A320 of the airline finally takes off from Munich. In August, two more Airbus A320 will join the fleet, which will grow to five short-haul aircraft by the end of the year. The existing flight schedule will be expanded over the next two months to include the Greek destinations of Samos, Rhodes, Chania and Zakynthos, as well as Bodrum and Antalya in Turkey, and Hurghada, Egypt, and Ibiza, Spain.
The flights can be booked at lufthansa.com, as well as at all German tour operators and travel agencies.
