Updated: Jan 11, 2020
Austrian Airlines announced Thursday that they will offer Vienna-Boston service for the first time starting March 29, 2020. The airline will start with four flights weekly, expanding to six flights by mid-April.
Today, Austrian Airlines announced new service to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) from Vienna beginning March 29, 2019. Initially starting with four weekly flights, frequency will be expanded to daily service (except for Mondays) by mid-April 2020. The new route will be operated by a Boeing 767-300ER with 211 seats. Austrian’s B767-300ERs are configured with 26 Business, 18 Premium Economy and 167 Economy seats. In today’s announcement Austrian Airlines’ CCO, Andreas Otto stated,
“We are very pleased about this new attractive destination. Boston is a city with great historical significance, just like Vienna. The city is also worth a trip from a business standpoint, not least because Boston is home to two of the world’s best universities, namely Harvard and MIT.”
From Vienna, the flight to Boston is around 6,500 kilometers and the flight time is around nine hours. Round trip tickets start at €399 (including taxes and fees). Austrian flight number 91 will depart Vienna daily (except Mondays) at 1:25PM, arriving Boston 4:30PM.
