Germanwings – part of Lufthansa

The reborn Germanwings is becoming very active in promoting itself as an independent yet integral part of Lufthansa.  The airline has taken over all German domestic flights with the exception of those into Frankfurt and Munich.

From 1 July under the umbrella of a universal Economy Class, the airline will have for sale three tariffs with different benefits and service packages: "Best" as a high-grade offer, which particularly covers the interests of business trips but is also attractive for private travel, "Smart" as a range of tariffs that can be personalised, "Basic" as a purely low-cost offer.

Those who seek a bit more comfort can already book many upgrade options – for example a seat in one of the front 10 rows with a leg-room of 32”.

With a fleet of 38 Airbus A319 aircraft the airline expects to carry around 18m passengers this year.  Former Lufthansa A320s are being added.  www.germanwings.com
