A notification: The completely nonsensical gender form, which the Lufthansa Group uses in its press releases as kneeling before political correctness, was corrected by Austrian Wings, as this meaningless corruption of the German language is rejected by the vast majority of the population and numerous experts of language.
Eurowings is significantly expanding its presence at Graz Airport and is expanding the range of attractive direct flight destinations from summer 2023. With Chania (Crete) and Larnaca, new destinations for Graz, as well as Hurghada, Karpathos, Corfu , Kos and Rhodes, seven destinations are planned in the popular holiday destinations of Greece, Egypt and Cyprus. A capacity expansion is underway in Mallorca.
In addition to the expansion to the south, Eurowings is expanding the offer of urban connections with Germany: the subsidiary Lufthansa will connect the capital of Styria in the summer flight schedule 2023 Berlin And Hamburg. Along with connections to Dusseldorf And Stuttgart travelers from Graz can therefore choose from up to 25 weekly frequencies to German cities. Business travelers in particular benefit from greater flexibility during their travel.
As part of this program expansion, Eurowings will also install an aircraft at Graz Airport. Graz is thus the eleventh base of Eurowings and part of the growth path of the leading value airline. The Eurowings summer offer is available from Monday at the latestDecember 19, 2022 bookable. BASIC fare flights are available from €39.99 one way.
“We are very pleased to offer a wide range of attractive destinations from Graz next summer, which are at the top of many holidaymakers’ wish lists,” he explains Jens Bishop, CEO of Eurowings. “At the same time, we are connecting Styria more strongly than before with the most important German conurbations. Both holidaymakers and business travelers benefit from our value concept, which meets the basic needs of today’s air travelers with flexibility, comfort and sustainability. Our expansion is also a strong commitment to Graz as the location of air traffic and to the entire region.”
“Hamburg and Berlin are a great addition to our range of flight schedules, which will also benefit Styria as a tourist and business location,” they explain Wolfgang Grimus and Jürgen Loeschnig, managing directors of Graz Airport. “The intensive economic relations between Germany and Styria form the basis for a corresponding volume of business trips to/from Berlin and Hamburg. At the same time, we expect strong impulses in city travel in both inbound and outbound tourism. With this extensive flight programme, Eurowings will become one of our strongest partners.”
Managing Director of Holding Graz Wolfgang Malik as the owner’s representative refers to the many years of experience according to which the importance of a regional airport can be enormously strategically increased if criteria such as “central location in the transverse hub of international traffic”, “competition of airline alliances with international feeder hub” or “airline bases for direct service to destinations” are satisfied. Malik: “Our Graz Airport, as the largest regional airport in the Alps-Adriatic region, fulfills these requirements excellently with the commitment of Eurowings to set up its eleventh base in Graz.”
In any case, the stationing of an efficient and modern Airbus in Graz not only strengthens the popular connections with southern Europe, but also brings northern Germany closer to the particularly attractive for business and tourism Styria. Malik: “I am confident that Graz will soon return to the ‘high flights’ of the popular ‘short-haul airport’ before Corona.”
