Today (February 25, 2021), Austrian Airlines announced the resumption of long-haul flights from Vienna to New York-JFK and Montreal with three weekly flights from May 2021. Including existing service to New York-Newark (EWR) the carrier will offer a total of eight weekly flights to the Greater New York City area for summer 2021. The carrier previously announced an increase in s their summer schedule last week with the resumption of flights from the end of March to destinations including Barcelona, Dubrovnik and Florence. Austrian Airlines also announced the restart of service to and from Hanover for the first time since 2009, as well as numerous holiday destinations in Greece, Italy and Spain. Austrian’s intercontinental schedule will also include the resumption of service to Amman, Bangkok, Chicago and Tokyo.


In today’s announcement, Austrian Airlines’ CCO, Michael Trestl, said,


“With five destinations in North America and three in Asia, including Tokyo and Bangkok, our long-haul services are back on a slight climb this summer. Unfortunately, however, we are still a long way from reaching cruising altitude. We hope that a rapid increase in the vaccination rate and a corresponding relaxation of travel restrictions will give us a further boost in the future.”
