Got your attention didn’t it….
Beginning June 10, Austrian will be deploying their 777s to fly between Vienna and Paris to meet the demand as a result of the UEFA Euro2016 Championship which is set to run between June 10 and July 10. Specifically, the 777 will operate the morning flights between Vienna and Paris in they days leading up to the Austrian National Team’s matches against Portugal and Iceland. The Portugal match is June 18, while Iceland is on the 22nd, so expect the 777s to be especially active a day or 2 before and after these matches.
In addition to increasing capacity to Paris, OS will also add 15 additional flights between VIE and CDG using their A320 and A321 aircraft.
Austrian will also deploy more capacity to Lyon as it will replace their Dash 8 and Fokker aircraft with narrow body Airbus aircraft to help meet the additional demand of fans of other countries traveling via Vienna to go root for their teams. Austrian plans to operate the Airbus aircraft on at least 10 flights during the tournament between Vienna and Lyon.
