Austrian_PressPicture_Aircraft(C)Austrian Airlines (1)Starting today Austrian Airlines will fly once again to Japan. The inaugural flight from Vienna to Tokyo will take off today at 5.45 pm. Five weekly flights will be operated each week to the Japanese capital city deploying a Boeing 777, the largest aircraft in the Austrian Airlines fleet. Up to 57,000 passengers are expected to take an Austrian Airlines flight on this route by the end of the year. “We had to terminate flight service on the route to Tokyo back in 2016 due to the economic downturn and the currency decline in Japan. Now market conditions are significantly better. There is potential for this flight service once again”, explains Stephan Linhart, Senior Director Sales Austria & Slovakia. “We are very pleased that we can return to Japan so quickly.”

In addition to the attractiveness for tourists, the Vienna-Tokyo route also offers considerable potential for transfer passengers. About one-half of all passengers will change to other flights at the Vienna flight hub. Prague, Zagreb, Innsbruck and Milan are the top transfer destinations and Austrian Airlines offers an extensive flight offering to all of them. In the current summer flight schedule, Austrian Airlines flies up to 37 times per week to Milan, up to 32 times to Prague, operates up to 31 flights to Innsbruck and up to 19 to Zagreb.
