“Austrian Airlines Takes Off for Los Angeles with Immediate Effect”

Published on : Monday, April 10, 2017

100-airbus-a320-austrian-airlinesAustrian Airlines operates flights to a new long-haul destination in the USA. The largest long-haul aircraft in the Austrian Airlines fleet, a Boeing 777, will be deployed up to six times per week on flights to Los Angeles, the biggest city in California. “We are already well represented in the eastern part of the USA, operating flights to Chicago, Miami, Washington and two airports in New York. We are pleased to offer new flights to Los Angeles, and thus add the West Coast to our flight schedule for the first time in the history of Austrian Airlines”, explains Austrian Airlines Chief Financial Officer Heinz Lachinger. Los Angeles is already the fourth new destination in the USA to be added to the airline’s route network during the last four years, along with Chicago, Newark and Miami. The million-strong metropolis is a popular vacation destination for Austrians and thus boasts extensive potential for tourism. However, Los Angeles is not only interesting for point-to-point flight traffic but also especially for transfer traffic. About two-thirds of the passengers will transfer flights at the Vienna flight hub.

The new direct flight connection from the West Coast of the USA fulfils a longstanding wish of Norbert Kettner, Vienna’s Director of Tourism: “The USA is Vienna’s biggest distant market, accounting for more than 830,000 overnight stays in the year 2016. The new flight service offered by Austrian Airlines, our most important strategic partner, will act as a driving force for the further development of accommodation numbers for both leisure and congress tourism.”

Up to 37 flights per week to the USA
In total, Austrian Airlines offers up to 37 non-stop flights per week to the USA in its summer flight schedule for 2017. Up to four weekly flights are operated to Miami, up to six times per week to Los Angeles, and up to seven flights each week to both Washington and Chicago. Austrian Airlines will continue to operate thirteen flights a week to the New York airports of Newark and JFK.
