Eurowings revealed it is launching 16 new routes to and from Greece this summer, offering 66 routes to the Hellenic Republic. Corfu, Heraklion and Kos are getting four new routes, Rhodes three and Zakynthos one new route. Furthermore, Eurowings is anticipated to increase its frequencies on six existing routes to Greece this summer.
Significantly, Eurowings is expected to grow by 40 percent this year in Greece, transporting more than 1.4 million passengers and delivering more than 300,000 additional tourists to Greece.
“As we are becoming one of the biggest European low-cost carriers, Greece will remain one of our top markets and these trends will continue in the upcoming periods,” expanded Orec.
