Off we go

The 2017/18 winter flight schedule features many new destinations

For sun worshipers and culture vultures alike: the new winter timetable has plenty of places to go, whether it's to escape to warmer climes or experience enchanted winter cityscapes. We have to confess: The new winter timetable, due to take effect on October 29th, is practically designed to cause a serious case of wanderlust. Looking for inspiration?

Since the end of March of this year, the low-cost carrier Eurowings has been operating out of Munich – with many new routes. And now, with the switch to the winter timetable, it will add holiday spots on the Canary Islands. Flights will depart every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday to such destinations as Las Palmas on Gran Canaria. The Lufthansa subsidiary will operate services to Fuerteventura and Tenerife twice a week and will have one weekly departure to Arrecife, the capital of Lanzarote.

There are also plenty of exciting city getaways: From the end of October, Eurowings will operate several daily services to Cologne/Bonn Airport and as well as four weekly flights to Lisbon. And for travelers who have always wanted to test their haggling skills in an exotic marketplace, Eurowings will be flying to Marrakesh this winter. Both Eurowings and Air Arabic Maroc will also serve the Moroccan port city of Agadir. The low-cost airline Ryanair, now departing from Munich for the first time, will operate two flights a day to Dublin. The British carrier bmi regional will offer flights to Saarbrücken, the state capital of Saarland, starting on November 6th.

Those with a longing for more distant shores will be excited to see the latest routes added by Condor: After a 10-hour flight, vacationers can bask on the beaches of the Caribbean island of Martinique or enjoy the warm climate of Recife in Brazil.
