Eurowings discontinues Belgrade service

NEWS FLASH


Low cost carrier Eurowings will discontinue its seasonal summer service between Stuttgart and Belgrade. The route was maintained only during the peak summer months of July and August over the past few years. In a statement to EX-YU Aviation news, the Lufthansa Group member said, "Eurowings has not planned to include this leg in the summer schedule". As a result, Air Serbia will remain the sole operator on the route. The Serbian carrier will maintain six weekly flights between the two cities this summer season.

    1. EasyJet? They do not fly to STR from BEG.

    2. Would be nice to see Lauda launch these flights. They seem to be a decent and cheap carrier, something ex-YU travellers desperately need.

    3. Lauda doesn't have a base in either city.

    4. Erm they do in STR!

    5. Air Serbia good job. Squeezed Lufthansa group from this line. AS added one more flight

  2. Eurowings reminds me of Adria with its cluelessness with route planing

    1. There planning on the Croatian market is pretty good and keeps expanding over the years with them serving 7! airports in Croatia from numerous points in Germany and Austria.

      Delete
    2. Actually over the past few years they have suspended few routes from Croatia and announced routes like Brac never happened. Also worth mentioning that their route planner is Croatian guy from Mostar.

    3. They are greatly increasing flights to Mediterranean beach destinations but they have a lack of aircraft and crews.
      So they are stopping less profitable destinations.

      Delete
    4. Brac was announced only here, not from Eurowings so you miss the point.

      And also, if you think that Eurowings flies to countries were their staff is from, than please do not post comments here anymore. Aviation is not working like that, at least no in Germany, in Balkan yes.

    5. Brac was announced from eurowings and from brac airport where was Planning for s18 sommer time table with flights to zurich,munich and dusseldorf with 2 weakly rotations...

  3. Even though their 'service' was a joke, it's sad to see them leave as they were one of the first LCC carriers to launch flights to Belgrade a bit over a decade ago. It was them and Norwegian.

    I guess they missed their chance to grow in Serbia and the market is really well served by Air Serbia, Lufthansa, easyJet and Wizz Air.

    2. I wouldn't say they missed the chance, but they rather don't seem to care about BEG market.
      I mean their presence was just symbolic. Over the years they could've launched TXL, HAJ, HAM or at least made STR a proper seasonal or even a year-round route.
      Though it probably has to do with Lufthansa and connecting BEG with Germany through FRA and MUC as I find it hard to believe a German LCC is incapable of growing in a city with a huge demand for flights to it's country

    3. Well market is too small for p2p traffic.

      Delete
    4. I suppose you are having a stroke if you seriously believe that the p2p market between Belgrade and Germany is small. My guess is that there should be around 1.000.000 passengers per year, if not more.

      Anyway, Eurowings launched BEG with flights from STR and CGN and back then it seemed as if they were going to keep on expanding. Don't forget that was also the time when LH operated BEG-DUS with the CRJ-200. Along the way they seem to have lost their interest. Naturally Wizz Air's expansion and Jat Airways not going bankrupt didn't work in their favor.
      I think CGN is the only remaining city in Germany they could launch without facing any direct competition. All others are taken and there is considerable competition.

  4. I think BEG will be replaced by either TSR or SOF. Not sure. They seem to be the new additions.

    The new TXL-SJJ route is also visible.

    2. You are right. SOF got these flights + Dusseldorf

  5. BEG is losing nothing.

    Their presence in Serbian capital was so minimal that no one will notice their absence (except maybe JU that will increase STR)

    1. Yes, but both Eurowings and Stuttgart are considered important airlines and destinations.
      STR is one of Germany's richest cities and is no village compared to say, Bremen, Hahn or Weeze, etc.

      Delete
    2. STR is already served from BEG by JU and there is Wizz to nearby Baden Baden.Is Eurowings really that important in Europe? They are still generally unknown and those who know it don't have nice things to say about them.

      Delete
    3. Eurowings is LCC and can't be more important than for example LH which inceased its presence in BEG this summer.

      Do not forget that JU flies to STR year round and in summer 2019 Air Serbia will connect Belgrade and Stuttgart 6 times per week. So STR will not stay without connection with Serbian capital.

      Aufwiedersehen Eurowings.

    4. The airport image is deteriorated in so many ways when you lose a big carrier and an important destination.
      If this was Växjö, ok. But we are talking about the home of Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and VW.
      This route must be restored instead of Egypt charters. The real money for Belgrade comes from the north.

      Delete
    5. Yes and all those who work for those companies fly with JU which is superior compare to Eurowings. Also you make it sound as if EW operated double daily flights. They had two weekly flights for about a month and a half. Hardly a major loss.
      Also, EW is hardly an important player in European aviation.

      I don't know how many times you have to be told that Air Serbia flies to Stuttgart 6 times per week all year long.

      Typical JU defender. Why so much anger?

      Prices seem to be more than reasonal at the moment, but will surely increase a lot, you will see.

    8. ^ what defender? Do you know English? You made statements as if no company will fly on this route. You are either a trefoil or dumb. No point in discussing with you.

      Delete
    9. No he is just a troll. On yesterday's news he was writing how Belgrade is only attracting Egypt charters and that Air France will suspend Belgrade and fly with "porsche" A318, which half empty will have a short flight time to Belgrade. Then when someone pointed out to him that AF is not flying A318 to BEG but sends it to Zagreb he went crazy. So yes a troll. Just don't know how he doesen't get tired of it. He also posted links on this news from 10 years ago how some airlines have suspended Belgrade and that the same thing will happen now. It was deleted.

      Delete
    10. I think people like him are funny. He thinks JU is cheap on the route because of EW which doesn't even fly at the moment and not because of Wizz in Baden Baden which is right next door. Sure, ok.

  6. >In a statement to EX-YU Aviation news, the Lufthansa Group member said, "Eurowings has not planned to include this leg in the summer schedule".

    Could they not have given a bit more of an informative statement?

    1. If you do some checks, you will realise that STR currently is agressively being invaded by Lauda. And because this is an important German city, EW are trying to get their maximum stake before it's too late. They are most likely concentrating on more profibale routes.

  7. Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport (FKB) is 110km away from Stuttgart city centre and W6 flies BEG-FKB two times weekly all year round.

    2. Sto se tebe tice Athos_Croatia sto Wizz leti za aerodrome po 100 i vise km od gradova? Tako lete za BVA i HHN koji su u istoj klasi kao FKB od Stuttgarta.

    3. Па не живе баш сви Срби у Штутгарту, има оних и у околним местима. Не заборавимо да Баден могу користити и они који живе у источној Француској, посебно у Стразбуру. Та два града су удљена тек пола сата. Мени је то баш кул, има шта год људима одговара па нека сами изаберу. Не знам зашто их чуди што се Јуровингз повукао, поред овакве конкуренције ко је уопште и обраћао пажњу на њих!
