Lufthansa Group has announced plans to launch seven long-haul leisure services for summer 2022 under its newly branded Eurowings Discover subsidiary.
The routes include flights from Fort Myers, Panama City, Salt Lake City, and Kilimanjaro to Frankfurt; also flights between Munich and Punta Cana, Cancun and Las Vegas.
The flights will be available to book starting this week at lufthansa.com, and will be operated by Eurowings Discover, which the group says “is specialized in tourist travel from the Frankfurt and Munich hubs.”
The report also says that the subsidiary will initially operate with three A330 aircraft, and will aim to compete with German charter carrier Condor.
Twice weekly flights between Munich and Punta Cana, Cancun and Las Vegas will launch in March 2022, as will thrice weekly services between Frankfurt and Fort Myers, and Panama City.
These will be followed by three flights per week between Frankfurt and Salt Lake City launching in May 2022, and twice weekly services between Frankfurt and Kilimanjaro starting in June 2022. This summer, the flight schedule already includes Mombasa (Kenya) with onward flights to the dream island of Zanzibar (Tanzania).
Earlier this year Lufthansa outlined plans to offer “the most extensive range of vacation destinations in years” this summer, with an increase in destinations from both Frankfurt and Munich.
The carrier is adding 20 new leisure routes from Frankfurt and a further 13 new destinations from Munich, with a “special focus” on routes to the Caribbean, the Canary Islands and Greece.
