It has emerged that Eurowings Discover will operate four charter flights to New York Stewart Airport in September and October.
The carrier is evidently looking at new markets to delve into, especially after dropping services to Panama City from Frankfurt.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
The Four Flights to New York Stewart with Eurowings Discover…
Courtesy of AeroRoutes.com*, it is understood that the four flights will operate on the following dates:
- 23rd September
- 7th October
- 17th October
- 26th October
Eurowings Discover flight 4Y2104 will depart Frankfurt at 1025 local time, and will arrive in New York Stewart at 1315.
The return, 4Y2105, will depart New York Stewart at 1530 local time, and arrive back in Frankfurt at 0515 the next day.
The equipment of use for the flights will be the carrier’s Airbus A330-300.
Alteration of Aircraft Usage…
As mentioned previously, Eurowings Discover is using services like New York Stewart as a good way of establishing whether certain charters can turn into permanent markets for them.
It is understood that Eurowings Discover has discontinued services between Frankfurt and Panama City.
At the time of writing, Eurowings Discover hasn’t given any indication of why this is.
Frankfurt-Panama City is a route unique in its own way and, at some point, must have had a level of demand worthy of Eurowings Discover launching services.
AviationSource approached Cirium for information on the offerings that the carrier offered from Panama City, and this is the information at the time:
- Eurowings Discover has operated 159 flights between Frankfurt and Panama City since the route began – equating to over 43,000 available seats
- The inaugural flight on this route took place on 27 March 2022
- During the one-year operations, flights have been operated by both the airline’s A330-200s and A330-300s
- Before Eurowings Discover launched this route in 2022, Lufthansa operated flights between Frankfurt and Panama City from 2016 to 2020.
So it is things like this where trial and error can work well, especially if it means bumping into certain markets that you eventually can thrive in.
