The official agreement has been signed, sealing the sales partnership between Eurowings and the Spanish airline Volotea. This collaboration, following the earlier letter of intent in March, enables both airlines to sell tickets for 150 European routes on each other’s websites. Eurowings contributes 104 routes, while Volotea offers 46 routes. Since their route networks do not overlap, this partnership will lead to significant growth in flight options, benefiting both Volotea’s website and Germany’s largest vacation carrier.
Among the connections provided, Volotea will introduce eight new routes connecting German airports such as Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, and Stuttgart directly to various French and Italian cities. These new routes are set to launch between late May and mid-October. Passengers will now have non-stop access from Germany to Bordeaux, Lyon, Nantes, Florence, and Verona via Volotea.
Jens Bischof, CEO of Eurowings: “The partnership with Volotea is another milestone on our way to strengthening the ‘Euro’ in the Eurowings brand name. From now on, our customers will benefit from a much wider range of affordable direct flights within Europe. In addition to this, we are significantly strengthening our sales power, particularly in southern Europe.”
Carlos Muñoz, founder and CEO of Volotea: “We are thrilled to make our partnership with Eurowings official and expand our reach to the German market, an important step in our larger growth plans in Europe. This agreement represents an exciting opportunity for Volotea to offer even more customers affordable, non-stop flights to explore new destinations across our extensive network.”
