Timisoara Airport in Romania has welcomed a new airline, Eurowings, with the launch of a new route to Stuttgart in Germany.
With this new route, Timisoara Airport becomes Eurowings’ second airport in Romania.
The route was launched on 3 June and will be served during the summer schedule on a three times weekly basis on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
“The presence of a new airline at Timisoara Airport and the introduction of new air travel means new opportunities for both the airport and the citizens of the western region of the country,” commented Daniel Idolu, Timisoara Airport general manager. “As a consequence, the economic attractiveness of the area will increase significantly and for the airport it will mean an increase in passenger numbers and turnover. ”
“We are delighted to welcome Timisoara to our route network of more than 200 airports – our second airport in Romania,” said Mohammed Nasr, general manager business development Central and Eastern Europe at Eurowings. “Together with our colleagues from Timisoara Airport we are very much looking forward to make this new route to Stuttgart a successful one, as a better connectivity between Romania and Germany is very important for tourism, economy and Romanians living across Europe.”
Peter Pullem, general manager of Central and Eastern Europe for Lufthansa Group added: “We are very pleased that with the expansion of Eurowings in Timisoara, Lufthansa Group has become even more active in Romania, as we continue to grow and invest in this very important market.”
