AUSTRIAN Returns to Africa and Japan

AUSTRIAN Returns to Africa and Japan

Austrian Airlines announced that it is set to return to two destinations next year.

Beginning with the Summer 2018 schedule, passengers will once again be able to fly Austrian from Vienna to Tokyo, Japan (Narita) and to Cape Town, South Africa.   In their comments, Austrian suggests that market dynamics have once again made it lucrative to serve these long haul destinations.    It also doesn’t hurt that they’ll be adding another Boeing 777 aircraft to the fleet next spring.    At that point they’ll have 6 777 aircraft that can be deployed on their long haul routes.

Flights to Tokyo will begin first with 5 flights per week starting on May 15, 2018.   Cape Town will be launched later in the year with 2 flights per week beginning on October 27, 2018.
