Deutsche Lufthansa AG will add a slew of U.S. destinations from Frankfurt and Munich next summer mainly using its low-cost Eurowings arm in a bid to attract more leisure travelers.

Europe’s biggest airline group will serve Phoenix, Anchorage in Alaska and Orlando, Florida, with Eurowings jets, according to a statement Wednesday. Flights to Las Vegas due to begin with the division’s first Frankfurt routes this winter will also be retained, and a new service from Munich added. Lufthansa itself will start operating to Seattle and Detroit.
