July 24, 2021: Eurowings Discover, a subsidiary of Lufthansa Group, has launched its inaugural flight from Frankfurt to Mombasa (Kenya) before heading on to Zanzibar (Tanzania) as a tag flight on June 24 using its A330-200. With this service, Lufthansa Cargo also gets the benefit to market the freight capacities on these new long-haul flights.

From August 2, this will be followed by further supplementary services to Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) with three flights a week, as well as to Windhoek (Namibia) on five days a week.

"The integration of the freight capacities of Eurowings Discover makes the offer even more attractive for our customers," stated Ashwin Bhat, chief commercial officer at Lufthansa Cargo on the company's LinkedIn post. "The increasing frequencies ideally complement our existing connections and help our customers in times of still scarce capacities. We are also pleased to be able to make a valuable contribution to the success of the new Lufthansa Airline by marketing the new Eurowings Discover capacities."

From October, Eurowings Discover is planning further flights to Las Vegas and Mauritius. In the 2021 winter flight schedule, Bridgetown, Montego Bay and Varadero will be added with three weekly frequencies each. In addition, the flight programme will be expanded from November to short- and medium-haul destinations such as the Canary Islands, Egypt and Morocco.

Eurowings Discover is the new tourist airline of the Lufthansa Group and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.
