Eurowings started to connect Germany with Ohrid


German low-cost air carrier Eurowings launched on Monday flights linking Macedonia's beautiful and historic Ohrid to Germany's Stuttgart, later a second new route will start connecting Ohrid with Dusseldorf on July 17th.

The Ohrid-Stuttgart flights will be serviced twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, during the summer months, Eurowings said in a statement.

The Ohrid-Dusseldorf flights will be operated just once a week, on Wednesdays, the low-cost air carrier added.

Eurowings is part of Lufthansa Group. The company has a fleet of currently 205 aircraft and is specializes in affordable non-stop flights within Europe. The German carrier offers flights to over 210 destinations in over 60 countries around the world.


At a welcome ceremony, the General Manager of operator TAV Macedonia, Alper Ersoy, said, "We are very happy to have welcomed the first Eurowings passengers from Stuttgart at Ohrid Airport."

He added: "We expect these two new destinations to increase the number of passengers at Ohrid Airport, as well as the number of German tourists on the beautiful Ohrid Lake. At the same time, the two new destinations will open up new opportunities for local citizens who can choose Eurowings for their travels and benefit from the airline’s extensive network of 210 destinations worldwide, including long haul flights to North America, South America and Asia". Eurowing's Chief Commercial Officer, Oliver Wagner, noted, "We are delighted to offer our passengers new routes to Ohrid over the summer. Tickets are already available from 29.99 euros for one-way flights."


The new services will mark Eurowings' entry onto the Macedonian market. Initially, the low cost airline planned to commence operations to Skopje in 2017, but the flights never materialised.

"With more than forty million passengers carried last year, Eurowings has clearly become the strong number three among point-to-point airlines in Europe. We are consolidating this status by expanding our network in the direction of Eastern Europe", the airline said.
