Eurowings has announced that it will open a new base in Stockholm, Sweden in March 2022. The German airline will initially station five Airbus A320 aircraft in Stockholm by March 2022.
This will be the eleventh Eurowings base of operations in Europe and the fifth outside its home market of Germany after Palma de Mallorca, Prague, Pristina, and Salzburg. Also, this will be the first time that the Lufthansa value carrier will offer nonstop flights from Scandinavia to business and vacation destinations throughout Europe.
The airline states that the latest base at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport also brings hundreds of new jobs to the region and an important stimulus for employment in the Scandinavian aviation market.
Jens Bischof, CEO, Eurowings, said:
Sweden is a market that fits perfectly with our goal to be the number one European value carrier. Since the pandemic, many travelers are no longer looking first for the cheapest ticket, but for an airline they can unconditionally trust in terms of safety, reliability, and social responsibility. With our Lufthansa DNA – for example an attractive network of low-cost direct flights and an unmatched customer service – we can offer just that.

Eurowings will fly from Stockholm to 20 European locations starting 27th March 2022. The first published routes include to popular Southern European sun destinations: Palma de Mallorca, Alicante and Malaga in Spain, Faro in Portugal, and Nice in Southern France. Other destinations that the airline will initially fly to include Berlin, Barcelona, Rome, Copenhagen, Birmingham, Gdansk, and Pristina. Eurowings says that other destinations will be announced in the coming backs. Tickets can be booked via eurowings.com and the Eurowings app with starting price of SEK 299 (29.99 euros) for a one-way flight.
Additionally, the airline proudly states that it was the most punctual airline in Europe and just recently was awarded triple gold at the German Customer Award presentations: best customer service, best customer satisfaction and best value for money.
We have done our homework and responded quickly to new customer needs and requests and used the crisis to make necessary changes in all areas. It is why Eurowings is more competitive today than ever before. With our consistent value-for-money approach, we are convinced we will soon also attract many Swedish vacationers and business travelers with our cutting-edge services.
