MIAMI — Eurowings is set to initiate flying nonstop six-times-weekly between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), the third-busiest airport in Germany. This service was announced back in November 2017 as a part of network expansion.

According to the airline’s Chief Commercial Officer, Oliver Wagner, Eurowings is the fastest growing airline in Europe and “is also seriously ‘upping the ante’ on the long-haul.”

As the carrier made known in a statement, JFK–DUS and the rest of Eurowings flights between Europe and the U.S. can be booked through United Airlines due to a codeshare agreement.

Currently, Eurowings offers long-haul flights from its Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn and Munich hubs, where it offers connections to other destinations throughout Europe. Moreover, it operates over 185 aircraft to more than 160 destinations in 50 countries.
