Austrian Airlines will offer flights to over 110 destinations from Vienna this summer, reaching 120 per cent of its pre-pandemic capacity.

The airline says that its bookings are “skyrocketing” and that it is reactivating its entire fleet to transport travellers abroad.

The Lufthansa Group carrier has seen high demand for flights to warm locations including the Maldives, Mauritius and Cancun during the Easter holidays in April. Additionally, flights to Bangkok are also in demand due to the easing of travel restrictions in Thailand.

It added that popular European destinations such as Palma de Mallorca, Ibiza, Thessaloniki, Keflavik nad Laranca have been “booked thousands of times in the past few days”, while city trips to Malaga, Paris, Hamburg and Berlin are popular in spring and have been partially boosted with additional frequencies.

Austrian Airlines’ CCO Michael Tresti commented:

“We are not surprised by the huge increase in bookings and the desire to travel among Austrians. People want to get out and discover new things and Austrian Airlines is their trusted travel companion!”

The Star Alliance member will be ramping up flights to the Balearic Islands this summer, serving Mallorca with up to three flights per day and Ibiza with up to five flights per week.

The resumption of the route to Los Angeles means that the airline will also be offering up to 33 weekly direct connections to the US from May.
