About Germanwings

Germanwings is a German low-cost airline, based in Cologne, Germany. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa, and operates under the Eurowings brand since being integrated in 2016.

The airline was founded in 1997 by Eurowings, who wanted to create a low-cost department. This department became a separate company in 2002, called Germanwings. In 2009, Germanwings became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lufthansa, taking over many of Lufthansa's short-haul flights in 2012, and obtaining part of the Lufthansa fleet. By the end of 2014, Germanwings took over all of Lufthansa's German routes, except those to and from Munich and Frankfurt, and from Dusseldorf to Newark and Chicago.

In 2015, however, Lufthansa announced that the Germanwings brand would be discontinued, and replaced and merged with the Eurowings brand, including things such as the airline's website and routes.

Germanwings still operated under its own IATA code (4U) under the Eurowings brand until March 2014, when it was abandoned and replaced with the Eurowings IATA (EW).

The Fleet

As of October 2019, Germanwings still consisted of the following fleet, which is operated by Eurowings.

Airbus A319-100 22 /
Airbus A320-200 4 /

Germanwings used to offer a buy on board service called Sky Bistro, as they did not offer any complimentary catering for its flights. This Sky Bistro allowed passengers to purchase meals, snacks and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) for their flight. Passengers who were on the 'Best' fare often got free snacks and drinks included in their fare.

Germanwings WiFi

There was no WiFi provided onboard Germanwings flights.

Germanwings Frequent Flyer

Germanwings has historically been a member of two frequent flyer programs. The Boomerang Club is now part of Eurowings, and it allows flyers to collect 'miles' per every €1 spent, in order to gain multiple benefits such as flights and bonus offers.

Miles & More is another Frequent Flyer program, which is part of the Sky Team Alliance. Germanwings was part of this program due to its ownership by Lufthansa, who launched the program. There are three types of miles within the program: Award Miles, Status Miles and HON Circle Miles.

Germanwings Airline Alliance

Germanwings was part of the Sky Alliance, because its parent company was Lufthansa. They intensified their cooperation with Star Alliance by signing an extensive codeshare agreement. This agreement will apply to 15 routes and long-haul flights by Singapore Airlines from Munich, Zurich and Manchester.
