Austrian Airlines’ aircraft will once again take off on regularly scheduled flights on 15 June 2020 after a break of close to 90 days. The first planes will take off for London, Paris and Brussels, among others.
Austrian Airlines will offer flights to the following destinations in the first week of resuming its flight operations: Amsterdam, Athens, Basel, Berlin, Brussels, Bucharest, Dubrovnik, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Geneva, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Larnaca, London, Munich, Paris, Pristina, Sarajevo, Skopje, Sofia, Stockholm, Stuttgart, Tel Aviv, Thessaloniki, Tirana, Varna and Zurich.
In the following week, namely from 22-28 June 2020, the airline will operate flights to additional destinations, i.e. Belgrade, Graz, Innsbruck, Kyiv, Košice, Milan, Nice, Prague, Split and Warsaw. Accordingly, Austrian Airlines will take off to 37 destinations in the first two weeks of resuming flight operations, subject to new official restrictions. In the initial phase, the airline will primarily deploy smaller aircraft such as Embraer 195 and Dash 8. Other destinations will be added in subsequent weeks.
Long-Haul Flights in July
From July onwards, Austrian Airlines aircraft will take off to regular long-haul flights for the first time since mid-March. Bangkok, Chicago, New York (Newark) and Washington will then be available with up to three weekly flights. The first long-haul aircraft will take off for New York at 10:15 a.m. on 1 July.
In Europe, the following destinations will be added to the almost 40 destinations already announced: Bologna, Florence, Moscow, Podgorica, Rome, Sibiu, Venice and Zagreb. Cairo will be added to the Middle East portfolio.
In addition, Austrian Airlines will offer the following holiday charters as of July: Chania, Corfu, Heraklion, Karpathos, Kos, Rhodes, Santorini and Zakynthos. Keflavik is also back in the program as a charter destination. In addition to the aforementioned resumption, Austria’s home carrier is also increasing the weekly number of flights to destinations in July, which will be served from mid-June onwards. Subject to new official restrictions, the July offer will thus increase from 5 to 20 percent compared to the previous year.
