Eurowings has this week marked a milestone with its “Mallorca Airbus”, it’s first A321neo celebrating over a month of successful operations.
The aircraft, registered as D-AEEA, has completed over 100 flights in its first month of operations, with many more to follow in due course.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
Eurowings’ “Mallorca Airbus” Celebrates One Month of Operations…
The carrier said the following in a statement regarding Mallorca Airbus:
“The flight programme for the first weeks included 16 different destinations.”
“Flight EW9856 from Düsseldorf to Palma de Mallorca was the first flight with which the latest addition to the fleet, registration D-AEEA, entered scheduled service on 20 July.”
“Since then, the long “Mallorca Airbus” has flown many thousands of travel-happy passengers to their holidays.”
“The seating capacity for up to 232 guests earns the newcomer the nickname “Mallorca-Airbus” – fitting for the Cologne-based company’s well-known “Mallorca Shuttle”.”
“In the summer season, the A321neo will be increasingly deployed towards the Balearic island to serve the continuing high demand for the most popular destination in the Eurowings network.”
“The Lufthansa subsidiary flies to the island’s capital Palma up to 400 times a week in the high season. With the A321neo, Eurowings is continuing its fleet modernisation.”
“In the course of the year, the airline will take delivery of another three aircraft of this type – the addition of a further A321neo is planned for February 2024.”
“Together with the seven A320neo aircraft, the neo fleet of Eurowings will then comprise 13 aircraft.”
Overall, it’s been a very successful start for D-AEEA, and it will be interesting to see what operations will look like for the jet going into the Winter season.
