Qatar Airways will be upgrading the capacity of its services to Vienna with the introduction of the Airbus A330. The widebody aircraft will replace the current A320 jet on September 1.
The switch from the A320 to the A330 will represent an end-to-end capacity upgrade for all cabin classes. Both aircraft offer a two-class configuration (business and economy), and the change will result in a total of 336 business class seats and 3,304 economy class seats per week – an increase of 168 and 1,624 seats respectively.
Qatar Airways country manager Germany & Austria, Mr. Günter Saurwein said: “We recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of our first flight to Vienna; a milestone which is a testament to our commitment to not only the city, but to our customers as well. We are extremely pleased that we are now able to offer an increase in capacity by introducing the A330 to the route in order to help meet the growing needs of our passengers.”
The daily A330 services will see QR183 depart Doha on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 0835, before landing in Vienna at 1325. The return flight will feature QR184 leave Vienna at 1615 and arriving back in Doha at 2235.
Meanwhile, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, QR181 will depart Doha at 0150 and arrive in Vienna at 0640. Finally, QR182 will leave Vienna at 1145 and arrive back in Doha at 1805.
