Germanwings expects to eliminate routes due to air tax

23 September 2010

German low-cost airline Germanwings, a unit of Deutsche Lufthansa AG, said Friday it expects it will have to eliminate some routes as a result of the country’s new air travel tax.

Germany introduced a levy on air travel included in an EUR80 billion package of budget cuts.

The low-cost carrier will therefore analyze which routes are still worth being operated after taking account of the new tax, which according to the company management puts German airlines at a disadvantage compared with others.
