Barcelona, Moscow, Paris and Zagreb will be added to the Germanwings programme this summer from Berlin Tegel. The airline is owned by Lufthansa but is not part of Star Alliance. The new routes are part of the handover of certain services from the parent company. Germanwings is a budget operation rather than a ‘full service’ airline.The new routes are part of the handover of certain services from the parent company. Germanwings is a budget operation rather than a ‘full service’ airline.
From 4 July Germanwings will fly from Berlin Tegel to Barcelona and Zagreb and on the 31 August will launch new services to Moscow Vnukovo and Paris Charles de Gaulle.
Since 2013 Germanwings offers three fare types, called Basic, Smart and Best, which offer different services. While Basic is a classic no-frills offer that features hand-luggage only and no free catering, Best includes hold baggage, free snacks and drinks as well as access to some lounges for tier members of Miles & More, the Lufthansa frequent flyer programme. Smart and Best are more or less comparable to the product that the airlines offered on the routes taken over by Germanwings.
The fleet is totally A320 series and Economy Class only and offers Sky Bistro (Bord Shop in German), a buy on board programme with food and drinks for purchase. www.germanwings.com
