Germanwings has announced it will launch a new route between Manchester, UK, and Stuttgart, Germany, in July 2012. The budget carrier will fly to Stuttgart five times a week from Manchester, every day except Wednesday and Saturday, with flights taking less than two hours.
The airline will also increase the number of flights between Stuttgart and London Heathrow Airport starting in February 2012 and the new route will start in summer 2012. Germanwings said the changes have been made possible by working closely with its parent company Lufthansa. The new connection will allow passengers to connect to a number of other destinations via the Germanwings hub in Stuttgart.
