Lufthansa renames Eurowings Discover as Discover Airlines

Leisure airline was launched in 2021 as a competitor to Condor and is now undergoing a rebrand

The Lufthansa group unveiled its new leisure airline, Discover Airlines, on Tuesday. The company is actually the rebranding of Eurowings Discover, created in 2021 to compete with other low-cost carriers like Condor.

The brand change comes amid investments to expand its fleet and destinations, expanding operations from Munich, which complements its main base in Frankfurt.

With 22 Airbus jets in its fleet (10 A320ceo and 12 A330-200 and -300), Discover is expected to receive another six jets in 2024, according to its parent company.

The aircraft were transferred by other Lufthansa subsidiaries and by the parent airline itself.

Discover currently flies to more than 60 destinations around the world, mainly in Europe, but also serves cities in Africa and America.

“The new design emphasizes our positioning as the quality leisure airline of the Lufthansa Group in Germany. In 2024 we will grow to a total of 28 aircraft and further expand our route network in Frankfurt and Munich”, said Bernd Bauer, CEO of the airline and who holds the same position at Edelweiss.

The inaugural flight was carried out by an Airbus A330-200 between Frankfurt in Mombasa, Kenya, and Zanzibar, Tanzania.
