MIAMI — In April 2017, Austrian Airlines will add its sixth destination in the United States with the launch of a flight from Vienna to Los Angeles.
The airline, member of the Lufthansa Group, will serve the route six times a week, to be operated by the airline’s Boeing 777-200s.
“After Chicago, Newark and Miami, L.A. is now the fourth new flight destination and the so far biggest leap into the USA. We will fly to the West Coast with our existing fleet and are already very excited about this new venture,” says Austrian Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Andreas Otto.
In its summer 2017 flight schedule, Austrian Airlines will offer up to 44 weekly flights to North America. This will include five times per week to Miami, six weekly flights to Los Angeles and Toronto, and a daily flight to Washington and Chicago.
Austrian Airlines will continue to offer thirteen weekly flights to New York, although the schedule will be adjusted as of March 27, 2017, with four flights now departing in the morning from Newark. According to the airline, the change will enable customers “to choose between a morning flight to Newark and an afternoon flight to New York JFK, and thus the opportunity to travel to New York at different times of day.”
