Austrian Airlines Completes Summer Schedule, Will Double Flight Offer to 40 Percent Versus 2019
Austrian Airlines announced on Thursday the completion of their summer 2020 schedule, doubling the carrier’s flight offer to 40 percent versus summer 2019. In August the carrier will resume service to Shanghai with a further schedule expansion in September.
Today (July 9, 2020), Austrian Airlines announced the publication of the remainder of their summer 2020 schedule which will double the number of flights on offer to 40 percent versus the same period last year. The schedule will run through October and include the resumption of once-weekly flights to Shanghai starting in August. From September, the schedule will initially offer up to once-daily flights to additional destinations including Chişinău, Dnipro, Iaşi, Klagenfurt, Leipzig, Lviv, Lyon, Nuremberg, Odessa and Yerevan. In Thursday’s announcement, Austrian Airlines’ Chief Commercial Officer, Andreas Otto said,
“Now that we have published our entire remaining summer schedule, we are offering customers more planning security. The demand so far makes us confident that we are on the right track with the ramp-up of flight operations.
Austrian Airlines will also increase capacity on most of their routes from September onwards as travel demand recovers. The carrier will offer more flights on larger aircraft with up to three daily flights in September to destinations such as Amsterdam, Brussels, Bucharest, Copenhagen Düsseldorf, Frankfort and Paris as well as twice-daily service to Athens. By the end of October, Austrian Airlines will have over 60 destinations on offer, representing around 40 percent of last year’s flight program.
Guests of Austrian Airlines whose flights were previously canceled can take advantage of flexible rebooking options for travel through 2021 or apply online for a refund. The carrier courteously requests that customers with scheduled flights more than seven days out refrain from contacting the service hotline, so guest service agents can accommodate customers with immediate needs.
