The airline has long wanted to tread into Frankfurt and has been continuously blocked, hampered, booed and so forth. They’ve officially landed in Frankfurt, their fares are low and we can expect to see major competition between Eurowings, Lufthansa and Ryanair, which will then likely force the hand of other operators in Frankfurt (cough, British Airways and co) to follow suit.
