Flights to the Bavarian capital begin on March 31 and will operate every day except Saturdays.

The service will complement the carrier’s existing flights to Stuttgart, Hanover, Cologne and Vienna.

Mats Sigurdson, Stansted Airport’s aviation director, said: “This is great news and adds even more choice to the already extensive European network on offer at Stansted. Eurowings is firmly established as a major airline at Stansted and we look forward to continuing our excellent working relationship.

“I’m sure the new service will be very well received within our catchment area, especially by business passengers along the London-Stansted-Cambridge economic corridor as well as those travelling from Munich wanting quick and easy access to London and the East of England.”
