Flights from TPA to Frankfurt will be daily in 2024 on rebranded Discover Airlines

Expanded service to the major European hub will begin next summer after Eurowings Discover takes on a new name and look.


Tampa International Airport’s service to and from Frankfurt is slated to expand to daily in Summer 2024 as part of Eurowings Discover’s announcement today that it is updating its brand identity, now known as Discover Airlines.

The German leisure airline began four-times-a-week service to the European hub in 2021, the same year the Lufthansa Group started operating the carrier. The route currently runs five days a week and has been popular at TPA, serving 160,000 passengers roundtrip since it started.

The move to daily service comes as the newly branded Discover works to add one more Airbus A330, the same type of aircraft that flies to TPA, and five new Airbus A220s. It currently operates 22 aircraft to more than 60 destinations worldwide.

Travelers will begin seeing the new branding this week as Discover starts to change its website and social media channels. Over the next few months, the airline will phase in new signage, employee uniforms and aircraft liveries.

The airline also touts some forthcoming product changes – like free headphones on long-haul routes, improved food and beverage options and upgrades to Premium Economy Class seating – and says more details will be available in the future.

Passengers with current bookings aboard Eurowings Discover will not see changes to their itineraries, which will automatically become Discover Airlines tickets.

Flights are for sale at Discover-Airlines.com or Lufthansa.com.
