It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a Eurowings Airbus A320 at Stuttgart Airport, painted in a branded livery, advertising Europa Park.
Eurowings operate a fleet of 50 Airbus A320 aircraft in its fleet, with the airline also operating the Airbus A319 and A321. The airline is in line to receive 20 of the new Airbus A320neo in due course.
This aircraft – D-ABDQ – is based out of Stuttgart Airport, operating destinations across the Eurowings network such as Milan, Santorini, Split, Thessaloniki, Palma de Mallorca and so on.
The aircraft has had an interesting history – initially joining Air Berlin in May 2007. It was leased to Niki in May 2012, returning to Air Berlin by the end of the year. It transferred to Eurowings in March 2017, where it has remained in the Eurowings fleet since then.
As for Europa Park? I went there many years ago. It’s the largest theme park in Germany and the second-most-popular theme park in Europe (the most popular is a theme park in the outskirts of Paris). It’s home to 13 rollercoasters, six hotels and one campsite. It’s located in the southwest corner of Germany between Freiburg in Germany and Strasbourg in France, in the Rust region.
Europa Park also has a mouse for a mascot. It’s been open since 1975 in some form.
