Lufthansa's Eurowings says Air Berlin plane transfer almost done

06/22/2018 | 09:00am EDT
German low-cost airline Eurowings opens new route from Duesseldorf to New York

BERLIN (Reuters) - Lufthansa's budget carrier Eurowings expects the transfer of planes from collapsed rival Air Berlin planes into its fleet to be completed by the end of July, it said on Friday.

Eurowings has come under fire in Germany recently for delays and cancellations, partly caused by its rapid expansion as it tries to move into the gap left by Air Berlin.

"Thanks to the successive introduction of further planes, we again expect a reliable flight operation," Eurowings CEO Thorsten Dirks wrote in a message to customers.

However, like other carriers such as Ryanair and IAG group airline Vueling, Eurowings and also Lufthansa has also had to cancel flights due to air traffic control strikes and staff shortages and weather.

Lufthansa has also written to frequent flyers apologizing for the delays. The group's core brand has canceled around 2,800 flights so far this year, more than in the whole of last year.
