LONDON – Austrian Airlines (OS) will begin flying to Milan Linate Airport (LIN) on June 1st, thus cutting travel time for passengers to/from LIN, an airport particularly popular with Milanese business travelers.

From June, two flights a day, one in the morning and one in the evening, will be available on the Vienna route. The route will be served by a combination of Embraer 195s and Airbus A320 family aircraft. In lieu of LIN, Milan-Malpensa (MXP) will no longer be served.
