  • Starting April 28, Eurowings will offer a six-times-weekly, non-stop service between New York and Düsseldorf, Germany
  • Airbus A340-300 aircraft features Eurowings’ all-new BIZclass
  • Flights have a codeshare with United Airlines, Lufthansa Group airlines’ joint venture partner for transatlantic flights

On April 28, 2018, Eurowings will begin its new, non-stop service between New York (JFK) and Düsseldorf, Germany. Eurowings, Europe’s fastest-growing airline and a Lufthansa Group subsidiary, operates long-haul flights from its Düsseldorf and Munich hubs, where it offers connections to other destinations throughout Europe.

“Eurowings is now the fastest growing airline in Europe and is also seriously ‘upping the ante’ on the long-haul,” said Oliver Wagner, Chief Commercial Officer at Eurowings. “New York is definitely a must for our ever-growing network, especially as we develop our fleet in Düsseldorf and expand our leading position in the region.”

Flight EW1101 will depart New York’s JFK at 10:30 p.m. and arrive at Düsseldorf airport (DUS) at 11:55 a.m. the next day (for departures on Saturdays: 6:55 p.m. and 8:20 a.m. respectively). Westbound flight EW1100 departs Düsseldorf at 11:05 a.m. and arrives at JFK at 1:25 p.m. (for departures on Saturdays: 2:35 p.m. and 4:55 p.m. respectively). Eurowings will operate a six-times-weekly service on the new route, flying every day except for Tuesdays.

The Airbus A340-300, which Eurowings will deploy on the JFK-DUS route, offers a three-class configuration that includes 18 BIZclass seats, 21 BEST seats and 261 Economy Class seats, for a total of 300 seats. The all-new BIZclass features a fully flat bed and a unique food and drink concept with specialty products such as poke bowls, craft beer from local breweries, apple crisps from a start-up in Hamburg and liquorice specialties by Lakrids from Denmark. BEST is Eurowings’ premium economy product, offering à la carte dining, preferred seating and extra legroom.

When arriving in Düsseldorf, passengers can take advantage of the extensive European network that Eurowings and other Lufthansa Group airlines provide, for their onward journey.

Düsseldorf lies at the center of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region, one of the economic backbones of Germany with over 10 million inhabitants. The city serves as the capital of the North Rhine-Westphalia region and, as an international business center, hosts numerous trade fairs. Only a short ride away from the city of Cologne and Germany’s neighboring countries, Belgium and the Netherlands, it is also a perfect base for those who want to explore the broader region.

These flights, as well as all other Eurowings services between the U.S. and Europe, can also be booked through United Airlines due to a codeshare agreement.
