LH Group examines resumption: Eurowings stops Graz-Stuttgart

Just a few weeks ago, Eurowings reactivated the non-stop connection between Graz and Stuttgart. The last flight on this route will be operated on May 20, 2022. No further details were given as to the reasons for the discontinuation.

However, it can be assumed that capacity utilization and yield were not satisfactory. Eurowings uses the Airbus A319/320 models on this route. These are significantly larger than the de Havilland Dash 8-400 turboprop aircraft used by Austrian Airlines in the past. However, the Lufthansa Group does not yet want to speak of a final cessation. 

"The LH Group is examining and evaluating a possible resumption after the summer," explains a spokesman for Austrian Airlines. When asked whether Graz-Stuttgart would be “returned” to Austrian Airlines by Eurowings, the media officer did not answer. In any case, there seems to be some concern within the Lufthansa Group as to whether the Eurowings A319/320 are not too big after all.

According to the current information, there are no changes on the Eurowings routes from Graz and Linz to Düsseldorf. In a direct comparison with the Stuttgart route, the utilization should be significantly better.
