Germanwings, the wholly-owned Lufthansa budget airline, yesterday (15 July) introduced a new non-stop service between Manchester and Stuttgart which will operate on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. It is the only airline to offer the route.
The carrier already serves Cologne from Manchester.
The airline says that the news affirms its commitment to the UK and Irish markets. Besides Manchester, Germanwings already operates out of Edinburgh, Heathrow and Stansted all year round, as well as Dublin during the summer months. At Berlin, Cologne, Hannover and Stuttgart it operates a guaranteed connecting flight policy called ‘one stop flights’. It currently operates 32 Airbus A319 aircraft. www.germanwings.com
