Eurowings (EW, Dusseldorf) has transitioned to an all-Airbus in-house fleet following the retirement of its last four remaining Bombardier CRJ-900 twinjets from scheduled service this past week.

In a statement confirming the move, the budget carrier said D-ACNM (msn 15253) conducted the type's last scheduled service - EW 4187 Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden-Hamburg Helmut Schmidt - on Wednesday, February 15 thus ending a near sixteen-year relationship with the CRJ series of Regional Jets. The first of the Family - the CRJ-200 - entered revenue service with Eurowings back in April 2001.

As it stands, these four CRJ-900s will join nineteen other ex-Eurowings machines of the same type at fellow Lufthansa Group unit, Lufthansa CityLine (CL, Munich).

Given the day's events, Eurowings' in-house fleet now constitutes twenty-four A320-200s with additional capacity sourced in the form of eight A319-100s and four A320-200s leased from Air Berlin, four A320-200 (sl)s leased from Austrian unit Eurowings Europe, one B737-800 and six A330-200s leased from Sun Express Deutschland, and one B767-300(ER) leased from TUI fly (Germany).
