Lufthansa Group airline Eurowings will connect holiday island hotspot Mallorca with Birmingham and Manchester for the first time.
Eurowings is entering the British travel market in response to a surge in demand for flights between the UK and Mallorca.
The German airline has an international base on Mallorca and, for the first time in its history, will connect Manchester and Birmingham with Europe’s most popular Mediterranean island from the end of May.
Entering the British travel market, Eurowings will initially fly holidaymakers twice a week from Birmingham and Manchester to Mallorca. A further expansion of UK flights by Eurowings will be considered in the coming weeks.
Immediately after Prime Minister’s speech on opening steps, holiday bookings by travel agents rose in some cases by more than 600% compared to the prior week.
Almost at the same time, Mallorca announced steps for opening restaurants and bars after recording significantly lower Covid-19 rates than before.
Eurowings is the largest provider of air travel between Mallorca and Germany.
The holiday airline of the Lufthansa Group will connect the Balearic island with more than 20 airports in summer 2021 from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
By adding Birmingham and Manchester, this will increase the number of Mallorca connections to 24 airports.
