Cornwall Airport Newquay (CAN) has welcomed the inaugural Bombardier Q400 flights of Eurowings’ weekly services to Berlin Tegel and Stuttgart last weekend.
Lufthansa’s low-cost carrier’s (LCC) seasonal services double the airport’s German connections as they join CAN’s established links to Düsseldorf and Frankfurt Hahn. Both services by Eurowings will operate once a week every Saturday.
CAN managing director, Al Titterington said: “The success of Eurowings’ Düsseldorf route clearly demonstrated the potential for further links, and in particular, the demand from German tourists for more inbound leisure routes to our region.”
He added: “It’s a rewarding moment when your dedicated promotion of prospective routes comes to fruition and we look forward to welcoming Eurowings’ passengers on these important new services.”
As the second largest country market after the UK to be served from CAN, Eurowings’ new operations to Germany give the airport a 20 per cent increase in seats to Western Europe throughout this summer.
