New Route of the Day (6 August 2021): Eurowings between Cologne Bonn and Yerevan
Eurowings, Lufthansa’s in-house LCC, launched a new, weekly service on Friday 6 August between Cologne Bonn and Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. Yerevan is a new destination for Eurowings and no other carrier serves the route. The inaugural service on the 3,100-kilometre route (flight number EW 290, operated by an Airbus A320 registration D-ABHC) departed Cologne Bonn at 14:59 local time and arrived in Yerevan almost four hours later at 20:46 local time. The return flight (EW 291) departed the Armenian capital at 21:59 local time and arrived back in Germany four hours and 25 minutes later at 00:24 local time on Saturday morning. Lufthansa will begin its own new service to Yerevan from Frankfurt later this week.
What they said
Marcelo Wende, Director of Armenia International Airports CJSC, said: “We are happy that Eurowings is entering the Armenian market. We congratulate the airline and wish them successful operation and safe flights. From now on, opportunities to travel directly to Europe will increase.”
René Koinzack, GM Sales for Ukraine, South Caucasus, Belarus and Turkmenistan at Lufthansa Group, said: “It is a big pleasure for us at Eurowings to serve for the first time the Armenian market and offer the regular Eurowings flights from Zvartnots International Airport of Yerevan to Cologne. Together with Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Lufthansa as of next Friday and now Eurowings, as one of the leading European Low Cost Carriers, we are glad to increase our Lufthansa Group presence in Yerevan and therefore offer more opportunities for travellers from Armenia.”
