As of November 8, Lufthansa will fly nonstop from Berlin to New York five times a week – the first time since 2001 that Lufthansa has based a long-haul aircraft in the capital city.

The recommencement of the Düsseldorf – Miami connection also begins on November 8: a thrice-weekly nine-hour flight operated by an Airbus A330-300.

Passengers can book flights in Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class online, at Lufthansa travel agency partners and at Lufthansa airport counters.

Eurowings is also expanding its long-haul services for the coming winter schedules, adding further services from both Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf airports. In addition to the six Airbus A330s already stationed at Cologne/Bonn, Eurowings will be putting a seventh aircraft into long-haul service from November 8, which will initially operate flights from Düsseldorf to Caribbean destinations.

Eurowings will also add long-haul services to its 2018 summer timetable, increasing its capacity to a ten-aircraft fleet. Destinations served will include popular points in the US, the Caribbean and the Far East.

Lufthansa’s new Berlin-New York and Düsseldorf-Miami routes will also be transferred to Eurowings in summer 2018, adding Berlin’s Tegel airport to Eurowings’s long-haul operations.

“We will only be able to achieve a stronger commitment to Düsseldorf, though, if the airport can provide conducive economic parameters and, above all, sustainably better operating parameters,” commented Lufthansa Executive Board Member and Eurowings CEO Thorsten Dirks.

Eurowings will also extend its low-cost long-haul product to Munich next year. Three Airbus A330s will be stationed at Munich airport to operate these services from the end of March 2018 onwards.
