German low-cost carrier Eurowings is planning big for summer 2022 with plenty of new and exciting destinations. For the first time, the airline will offer as many as 380 flights a week to the Spanish holiday island of Mallorca. The Düsseldorf-headquartered airline says that after what may be a problematic winter battling COVID-19, during the summer, it will offer nearly as many flights as it did before the pandemic.
With the travel industry predicting a strong rebound in the summer of 2022, Germany’s largest holiday airline says you can now use the cold Christmas days to book your summer vacation on the Eurowings website. Eurowings says that it offers customers over 140 attractive destinations to choose from, including the ever-popular Mediterranean island of Mallorca.
Eurowings has some new destinations for summer 2022
Along with Mallorca, Eurowings will fly from the following German airports to:
- Hamburg Airport (HAM) to Lisbon, Porto, Alicante, Bilbao, Verona, and Gothenburg.
- Stuttgart Airport (STR) to Porto (Portugal), Adana and Kütahya-Zafer (Turkey), Preveza (Greece), Tbilisi (Georgia) Tivat (Montenegro) and Tunis (Tunisia). Also returning to the schedule is the Romanian city of Timisoara.
- Düsseldorf International Airport (DUS) to Bergamo (Italy), Funchal (Portugal), and Tromsø (Norway). New to the schedule will be the Greek city of Volos and the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Returning to the lineup for summer 2022 is Kosice (Slovakia) and Mostar (Bosnia-Herzegovina).
- From Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN), Eurowings will fly to the Canary Island of Tenerife and serve Benidorm, the Spanish holiday resort of Alicante. Turkey is also back on the agenda for 2022, with Eurowings offering flights to Izmir and Kayseri. Also, given that the Turkish Lira has lost 40% of its value against the Euro this year, it could prove to be a popular summer destination for German tourists.

Other Eurowings news
Since last summer, Eurowings has allowed passengers to book the middle seat in addition to their own for as little as 10 euros. With passengers wanting to keep a safe distance from their fellow travelers, this became a popular option on many Eurowings flights. Now in appreciation of all those passengers who paid for an extra seat, during the Christmas and New Year holidays, Eurowings will allow you to book the middle seat free of charge.
The option is available to all Eurowings customers flying on domestic German flights and flights departing from or arriving at airports in Austria and Switzerland. The free middle seat can be booked on the Eurowings website, with the offer available from 21 December 2021, until 16 January 2022.
Eurowings came about in 1993 following the merger of two German commuter airlines Nürnberger Flugdienst (NFD) and Reise-und Industrieflug (RFG). Initially operating with a fleet of ATR 42s and ATR 72s, the airline added BAe 146s before becoming the mainly Airbus airline it is today. German national flag carrier Lufthansa acquired an initial 24.9% stake in Eurowings in 2001, before later increasing that to 49% and eventual ownership in 2011. In 2017, Lufthansa announced that it planned to move Eurowings away from being a regional carrier and that it would now be a low-cost carrier (LCC) flying short and long-haul routes to holiday destinations.
According to the aviation data and statistics, website ch-aviation Eurowings current fleet is made up of the following 95 aircraft:
- 2 x Airbus A220-300s
- 36 x Airbus A319-100s
- 53 x Airbus A320-200s
- 2 x Airbus A321-200s
- 2 x Boeing 737-800s
