Germanwings used to offer a buy on board service called Sky Bistro, as they did not offer any complimentary catering for its flights. This Sky Bistro allowed passengers to purchase meals, snacks and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) for their flight. Passengers who were on the 'Best' fare often got free snacks and drinks included in their fare.

Frequent Flyer Programme

Germanwings has historically been a member of two frequent flyer programs. The Boomerang Club is now part of Eurowings, and it allows flyers to collect 'miles' per every €1 spent, in order to gain multiple benefits such as flights and bonus offers.

Miles & More is another Frequent Flyer program, which is part of the Sky Team Alliance. Germanwings was part of this program due to its ownership by Lufthansa, who launched the program. There are three types of miles within the program: Award Miles, Status Miles and HON Circle Miles.

Alianza de aerolíneas

Germanwings was part of the Sky Alliance, because its parent company was Lufthansa. They intensified their cooperation with Star Alliance by signing an extensive codeshare agreement. This agreement will apply to 15 routes and long-haul flights by Singapore Airlines from Munich, Zurich and Manchester.
