Germanwings is the low-cost daughter airline of Germany's Lufthansa airlines.

Germanwings fly short- and medium haul routes between Germany and the rest of Europe. Germanwings have taken over many routes previously flown by Lufthansa.

Germanwings offer tickets in three classes: Basic, Smart and Best, with Basic having the lowest fares.

With a Basic ticket you have to pay an additional fee to check in a suitcase and to reserve a specific seat. There is no refund if you cancel or do not use a Basic class ticket. The cost of checking in a second luggage item is much higher than for the first item.
