Eurowings, a member of Lufthansa Group, has announced the launch of two brand-new weekly flights, operating between Bangkok and Munich, starting from July 2018. The new flights will depart from Germany on Saturdays and Mondays, with the inaugural flight setting off on 16th July 2018.
“We are very pleased about this new route from Munich to Bangkok by Eurowings,” said Mr. Stefan Molnar, who is the General Manager of Sales in Thailand, Vietnam and the Mekong Region for Lufthansa Group. “The launch of this connection strengthens Lufthansa Group’s presence in this market and increases flexibility and choices in terms of overall offers from Thailand to Europe,” he continued.
Eurowings caters for cost-conscious leisure travellers who are looking to visit Thailand on a budget. The airline has recently shifted its business model to focus more prominently on long-haul travellers, bringing destinations such as Bangkok within the reach of more European travellers than ever before.
“The commitment we have shown with our high investment in the new business model of low-cost long-haul routes has paid off for us”, says Oliver Wagner, Managing Director at Eurowings. He adds, “Eurowings is the fastest-growing airline in Europe and is now strongly focusing on long-haul.”
Eurowings was founded in autumn 2015, modelled on the successful airline Germanwings. The new, standalone low-cost airline group offers flights to attractive long-haul destinations such as Miami, Las Vegas, Havanna, Cape Town, Phuket and now Bangkok. Eurowings is set to acquire its seventh Airbus A330 in 2018, taking the airline’s intercontinental fleet up to a total of 21 aircraft.
