German budget carrier launches Thailand flights

Reading Time: 1 minute

EurowingsStarting December 21, another low-cost carrier will offer direct flights between Europe and Southeast Asia. Eurowings, the long-haul budget airline of Germany’s national carrier Lufthansa, will commence operations to Thailand from its base in Cologne.

Eurowings is the second budget carrier to launch Southeast Asia flights after Norwegian started connecting Scandinavian cities with Bangkok in 2013.

Claiming to have operational costs around 40 per cent below its parent company Lufthansa, Eurowings serves the low-cost market in Europe and will offer some of the cheapest fares to Thailand. As of time of writing, pre-booking of a Cologne-Bangkok round-trip could be made for around €400 plus surcharges and other fees. Eurowings will also fly to Phuket and will deploy Airbus A330-200 jets.

The flight from Cologne to Phuket will leave every Monday and Friday and the flight from Cologne to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport departs on Wednesdays and Sundays.

The return flights from Bangkok to Cologne will take off every Monday and Thursday, while flights from Phuket will leave every Tuesday and Saturday. Travelers can then connect to many other destinations in Europe. By May next year, Eurowings will also offer a cheap alternative to continue the flight to three US destinations, namely Boston, Miami and Las Vegas, as well as Cuba.

Altogether, the Lufthansa group with its brands Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Swiss and Eurowings now operates a total of 25 flights per week between Thailand and Europe and has code-share agreements with Thai Airways and Bangkok Airways to connect travelers throughout the region.
