Austrian Airlines has published the remaining summer flight schedule 2020, which will run until the end of October, subject to new official restrictions.
Starting in August, Austrian Airlines will be flying to Shanghai again – initially once a week. From September onwards, further routes will be added to the flight schedule, which will initially be operated up to once a day. This concerns Chişinău, Dnipro, Iaşi, Klagenfurt, Leipzig, Lviv, Lyon, Nuremberg, Odessa and Yerevan.
In addition to resuming flights, Austrian Airlines is increasing capacity on almost all existing routes from September onwards. This means more flights and larger aircraft. For example, Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Paris are on the program from September with up to three daily flights. Athens will be connected up to twice daily instead of once.
Due to the official prohibition, Austrian Airlines is forced to cancel all flights between Vienna and the following destinations during the period 16-31 July 2020: Belgrade, Bucharest, Cairo, Kyiv, London, Podgorica, Pristina, Sarajevo, Sibiu, Skopje, Sofia, Stockholm, Tirana and Varna. The landing bans will also have an impact on the remaining route network of Austrian Airlines, due to the fact that the affected routes are frequented by many transfer passengers. These passengers will be missing, for example on flights to the USA.
