German airline Eurowings expects to be able to return to pre-crisis capacity in 2022, noting a strong recovery in demand for business travel as fall begins, ATO reports.

The Lufthansa Group's low-cost division is actively operating 81 aircraft this fall. In winter, the active fleet will be reduced as a number of aircraft will go for routine maintenance as usual. By the summer of 2022, it is planned to operate flights using 115 aircraft, which is almost the same as in pre-crisis 2019. However, Eurowings has canceled long-haul tourist flights, which have been transferred to Eurowings Discover, an operator created this July that specializes in performing flights to resort destinations. Despite the similar name, Eurowings Discover is largely operated by Lufthansa.
