Eurowings Discover to Launch Scheduled Flights to South Africa


Just in time for the Southern Hemisphere's summer season, Eurowings Discover will launch its maiden flights to South Africa with service to the Kruger National Park from November, 2022.


The three-weekly service will operate from Frankfurt Airport to the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport using an Airbus A330 aircraft, with a short stop-over in Windhoek, Namibia.


“We are very excited to be commencing scheduled flights to greater Kruger National Park region as the first intercontinental airline ever,” said Helmut Woelfel, chief commercial officer of Eurowings Discover, in a statement on Friday. “Not only is it a truly unique destination but it also marks the first South African destination in our portfolio – needless to emphasise the attractiveness and popularity of South Africa among European holidaymakers.”

When launched, the service will be the first time an international airline will fly to Kruger Mpumalanga Airport. Currently, the only service outside South Africa is FastJet Zimbabwe's service to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe using an Embraer 145s.


Currently, Eurowings Discover flies to four destinations in the sub-Saharan Africa, including Mombasa in Kenya, Zanzibar in Tanzania, Windhoek in Namibia and Mauritius.


Eurowings Discover is the Lufthansa Group's new vacation airline that takes travellers from Frankfurt am Main - and from summer 2022 also from Munich - to the world's most beautiful destinations.


Located in northeastern South Africa in the eastern parts of Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces, Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos.
