The company hasn't announced a launch date yet. 

Lufthansa Group has provided scant information about Eurowings Discover. A company spokeswoman didn't respond to emails seeking additional information on Wednesday and Thursday. 

The brand appears to be filling in for the similarly named Eurowings, which was the low-cost unit the Lufthansa Group used on some U.S. leisure routes prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.
