The airline also plans to inaugurate a new service from the Swedish base to the Balkan region later this month
German low-cost carrier, Eurowings plans to expand its presence in Sweden by launching operations at Malmo Airport, with a new direct service to Kosovo’s capital, Pristina this summer.
Currently, the airline serves both Stockholm Arlanda and Gothenburg/Landvetter.
A number of international routes are set to resume this summer, as passengers traffic is beginning to increase at Malmo.
Twice-weekly flights between the Swedish city and Pristina are set to begin on June 28, with plans to continue until mid-September.
“We welcome Eurowings and are pleased that they see more opportunities in Sweden and have chosen to invest in Malmö and the Greater Copenhagen area,” said Elizabeth Axtelius, director of aviation business at Swedavia. “Having more direct routes is important for growth in this region, and access will be important with the restart after the pandemic all across Sweden.”
According to the carrier, a large number of residents situated in Southern Sweden have relations in the Balkans – Kosovo represents the third largest ethnic group with links in the Malmo region.
