Germanwings, Lufthansa’s budget carrier, has been relaunched with a new focus on offering better budget service for business passengers. The low-fares carrier is offering business travelers extras such as champagne, more leg-room, the ability to re-book flights and online booking of extra luggage on short-haul European routes. Germanwings aims to make a profit by 2015 – in 2011 the carrier posted an operating loss of €52 million from €39 million in 2010. Germanwings has taken over the Stuttgart, Cologne and Hamburg routes from Lufthansa and will add Duesseldorf and Berlin by end of 2014.
