Eurowings will open a new base at Arlanda Stockholm Airport in March 2022
Eurowings, a subsidiary of the Lufthansa Group, will open a new base at Stockholm's Arlanda Airport in Sweden in March 2022. Eurowings will have five Airbus A320s at its new Arlanda Airport (RNA) hub and will provide direct connectivity from Scandinavia to various destinations across Europe.
The new base will open on March 27, 2022. The airline plans to hire up to 150 new crew members to work here and operate 20 routes across Europe. However, so far only 12 of these 20 routes have been revealed.
The Swedish base is the airline's 11th base in Europe and the fifth hub outside its base in Germany.
These include holiday routes to Palma de Mallorca (PMI), Alicante (ALC), Malaga (AGP), Faro (FAO) and Nice (NCE), as well as business flights to Berlin (BBI), Barcelona (BCN), Rome (FCO), Copenhagen (CPH), Birmingham (BHX), Gdansk (GDN) and Pristina (PRN).
Jens Bischof, CEO of Eurowings, noted that the airline is trying to become "The first European carrier of value", attracting Swedish tourists and business travelers.
"Sweden is a market that fits perfectly with our goal of being the largest European carrier of value," said Bischof. "Since the beginning of the pandemic, travelers are no longer looking for the cheapest ticket, but for an airline in which they can have unconditional confidence in safety, reliability and social responsibility. With our Lufthansa DNA - an attractive network with dozens of low-cost direct flights and unparalleled customer service - we can deliver just that. ”
