A new gateway to the U.S. casino metropolis of Las Vegas has opened up with the change to the summer flight schedule. Sunday, March 27, 2022, marked the first time a long-haul aircraft of the airline, which was founded last year, took off from Munich to the desert city in the U.S. state of Nevada. The Airbus A330-300 took off from Munich on time at 12.45 p.m. with nearly 300 passengers on board for the 12-hour flight to Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. The service from Munich to Las Vegas is offered on Fridays and Sundays.
The wholly owned Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings Discover is introducing also other attractive long-haul holiday destinations from Munich. In addition to Las Vegas, flights will also be available to Cancun in Mexico and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
