The FINANCIAL — Less than twenty-four hours after celebrating its inaugural Birmingham-Vienna service, German low-cost carrier Eurowings, has announced it will launch another new route from Birmingham to Salzburg in December.
Already operating Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Vienna, the new Salzburg flight will operate twice weekly from the 9th December, catering for the ski community and city breakers, according to Birmingham Airport.
All services are planned with an A320 aircraft configured to 174 seats.
The Salzburg flight schedule will be as follows:
Arrive from Salzburg at 0900 / Depart Birmingham at 0940
Arrive from Salzburg at 1305 / Depart Birmingham at 1345
William Pearson, Aviation Director for Birmingham Airport, said: “It’s fantastic to see Eurowings expanding its list of routes from Birmingham Airport so rapidly.
“Salzburg is a great ski destination but also a great city break city which we are sure will make this route very popular indeed with our passengers all year round.”
Eurowings is headquartered in Cologne and serves a network of domestic and European destinations as well as some long-haul routes.
Ivan Orec, Network Development & Airport Relations Manager for Eurowings said: “We are pleased to add a new Salzburg route to our Birmingham schedule, which will operate twice weekly, every Wednesday and Saturday, starting from the beginning of December.
“We are also looking forward to bringing more ski passengers to Salzburg and offer them free of charge transport of their ski equipment.”
The Austrian city of Salzburg is most famous for being the home of Mozart and The Sound of Music. The Old Town is burrowed below steep hills and stands beside the Salzach River. The formidable cliff top fortress is surrounded below by buildings with graceful domes and spires and the mountains beyond give a stunning city backdrop. Visitors will find a growing arts scene, fantastic food, beautifully manicured parks, quiet side streets and strong classical music traditions.
