Austrian Airlines brings EU travelers back to the US

Published on : Monday, November 8, 2021

After more than one and a half years, the US will end the entry ban for travelers from the European Union on Monday, 8 November. This also allows for Austrians to finally fly to the United States again. The catch-up effect could not be more evident: Flight OS089 from Vienna to New York (Newark) on 8 November is fully booked. To enter the USA, the following requirements apply:

Entering the country is only possible for fully vaccinated travelers. It is also required to additionally present a negative PCR test before departure, which must not be older than 72 hours. Also travelers who recently recovered from Covid-19 may only enter the US if they are fully vaccinated. Only a few groups of people (children and adolescents under the age of 18, government employees, diplomats, and people with relevant certificates) are exempt from the vaccination requirement. These groups must present a negative PCR test, which must not be older than 24 hours.

To avoid waiting times at the airport, travelers are advised to upload all corona-related travel documents on to have them checked prior to departure. The voluntary digital document upload can be done up to 12 hours before departure. The result of the check will be sent by e-mail no later than four hours before departure. Please observe the usual requirements for entering the US, such as a valid ESTA status for tourist travel.

(Re)discover the US with Austrian Airlines

With the end of the entry ban, bookings for US-flights with Austrian Airlines have increased fivefold on some routes. The domestic airline currently serves four airports in the US (New York (Newark and JFK), Washington D.C. and Chicago) with 16 weekly connections.
