Eurowings spokesman Matthias Burkard said: “Great Britain is one of the most attractive markets for flights from Germany and other German speaking countries.

“Starting from Munich, we are sure that flights to Edinburgh and to Scotland with Eurowings will have a strong demand – especially for leisure travelers.

“For Eurowings, Scotland is a destination. Edinburgh is very charming, the gateway to discover Scotland with its gorgeous landscapes and number two in Great Britain in terms of economic performance.”
