Eurowings cooperates with Smartwings

November 1, 2021
Germany's largest holiday carrier Eurowings is cooperating with the leading Czech airline Smartwings. The two companies have concluded a codeshare agreement to market flights. In the future, selected connections operated by Eurowings from its new base in Prague will also be offered under Smartwings flight numbers and will be available for sale on and other sales channels of the airline. Smartwings customers will thus benefit from the growing range of direct connections offered by the Lufthansa subsidiary from the Czech capital. During the Covid crisis, Prague had lost numerous direct connections to attractive destinations in Europe, which are now being successively re-established.

"We are delighted about the codeshare agreement with our partner Smartwings, which will strengthen the services at our new base in Prague. Operating from a highly attractive metropolitan location, we want to offer even more business and leisure travelers attractive non-stop connections throughout Europe," said Eurowings CEO Jens Bischof.

“Our long-term priority is to expand the range of destinations, and, thanks to a new partnership with Eurowings, we will be able to offer convenient connections to a wide portfolio of destinations to our customers,” said Roman Vik, Board member and CEO, Smartwings.

The first Eurowings flights in codeshare with Smartwings will take off from Prague just a few weeks after Eurowings started operations in the “Golden City”. By opening a new base in the Czech capital, Eurowings is expanding its services in Central Europe. From October 31, 2021, Eurowings will initially connect Prague with 14 new European destinations. By summer 2022, the Lufthansa subsidiary will station three Airbus A320 aircraft, including local crews, in the Czech capital. The flights will be operated by Eurowings Europe, Eurowings' pan-European flight operation.
