Austrian Airlines Restructures Route Network and Increases Frequencies

Austrian Airlines is restructuring its route network. Beginning October 2018, Austrian Airlines will remove certain connections from its winter schedule, such as Hong Kong, Havana and Colombo. Flight service between Vienna and Linz will also be terminated beginning with the 2018/19 winter flight schedule, with the final flight from Linz to land in Vienna on October 27, 2018. Isfahan and Shiraz in Iran will no longer be represented in the Austrian Airlines flight offering as of September 2018. The traditional flight to the Iranian capital city Teheran will, however, remain unaffected. Starting at the end of October 2018, flight service to Miami will be offered on a seasonal basis during the summer months. Affected passengers will automatically be rebooked on other flights. The underlying reason for these changes in the route network is a realignment of the airline’s portfolio.

 

Flight service between Vienna and Linz will also be terminated beginning with the 2018/19 winter flight schedule, with the final flight from Linz to land in Vienna on October 27, 2018. Isfahan and Shiraz in Iran will already no longer be represented in the Austrian Airlines flight offering as of the middle of September 2018. However the traditional flight to the Iranian capital city Teheran will remain unaffected. Starting at the end of October 2018, flight service to Miami will only be offered on a seasonal basis in summer instead of the entire year. Affected passengers will be rebooked on other flights. The underlying reason for these changes in the route network is a realignment of the airline’s portfolio.

 

“With the entire fleet and now 12 long-haul aircraft, we want to offer a denser route network and thus an improved offer for our passengers,” explained Austrian Airlines CCO Andreas Otto. “For this reason, we will take advantage of available capacities, especially to serve North America more optimally. This way, we aim to be more attractive to business travelers and transfer passengers in Eastern Europe and also to simply gain more customers,” he added.
