Starting April 28, Eurowings will offer a six-times-weekly, non-stop service between Düsseldorf and New York.

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. Flight EW1101 will depart 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 DUS-JFK 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. BEST is Eurowings’ premium economy product, offering à la carte dining, preferred seating and extra legroom.

The new operation has been prepared in record time by the long-haul experts at Belgium’s Brussels Airlines, a Eurowings Group flight operation. The New York connection, which will be operated with a four-engine long-haul Airbus A340, marks a new milestone in the Eurowings success story at Düsseldorf airport. The Eurowings Group’s long-haul fleet in Düsseldorf is expected to expand to seven jets by the winter flight schedule 2017/18. Eurowings currently operates 40 aircraft at Düsseldorf airport, which fly more than 1,750 times a week to 95 destinations in Germany, Europe and around the world.
