Dreariness in Germany, holiday fever in the UK: Eurowings is entering the British travel market in response to the surge in demand for flights between the UK and Mallorca. Germany’s number one holiday airline has an international base on Majorca and, for the first time in its history, will connect Manchester and Birmingham with Europe's most popular Mediterranean island from the end of May. Entering the British travel market, Eurowings will initially fly holiday travelers twice a week from Birmingham as well as from Manchester to Mallorcaand back. A further expansion of UK flights by Eurowings will be considered in the coming weeks.

Eurowings is offering services to customers in Great Britain since a run on holiday travel has already begun there. As soon as the date for the end of the corona shutdown was set, many Britons immediately secured flights to Southern Europe, mainly to Mallorca. Immediately after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's speech on opening steps, holiday bookings by travel agents rose in some cases by more than 600 percent compared to the prior week. Almost at the same time, Mallorcaannounced steps for opening restaurants and bars after recording significantly lower Coronavirus figures than before.

Eurowings is by far the largest provider of air travel between Mallorcaand Germany – the flights are also known as the "Palma Shuttle". The holiday airline of the Lufthansa Group will connect the Balearic island with 22 airports alone in summer 2021 from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. By adding Birmingham and Manchester, Eurowings will increase the number of Mallorcaconnections to 24 airports.
