Austrian Airlines adds long-haul capacity for winter



Austrian Airlines is adding more flights to the long-haul destinations of Bangkok, New York and Montreal for its 2024-25 winter schedule.

The carrier, owned by Lufthansa Group, also announced that routes to Boston, Bremen and Tbilisi, which were introduced for summer 2024 would continue throughout the coming winter. It will also introduce Ivalo in northern Finland as a new destination this winter.

Austrian Airlines will be able to expand its long-haul schedule next winter due to the delivery of two new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. This will allow flights from Vienna to Bangkok to increase from seven to 13 per week, while services to both New York and Montreal will go up to five per week, while Boston will have three weekly flights over the winter.

Michael Trestl, chief commercial officer of Austrian Airlines, said: “Our aim is to continuously expand our route network to be able to offer our guests a broad portfolio of destinations.

“On long-haul routes, it was important for us to initially serve Boston in the winter and to offer more flights to destinations popular among our guests. This approach aims to return to pre-crisis levels in intercontinental services and provide attractive connections worldwide.”
