Austrian Airlines has massively expanded its offering to North America as part of its summer flight schedule for 2014. Due to the extensive demand since the reopening of the Chicago route one year ago, Austrian Airlines offers daily flights to Chicago since May 2014, compared to five flights a week offered before. In addition, starting on July 2, 2014, Austria’s domestic airline will add a new destination, Newark, to its route network. The five weekly flights will be carried out using a Boeing 767 aircraft in addition to the daily flights to JFK in New York. As a result, Austrian Airlines will provide a total of 12 weekly flights to New York and 33 non-stop flights from Vienna to North America.

More flights to North America
Furthermore, as of July 1, 2014, a Boeing 777 will fly to Washington on a daily basis instead of a Boeing 767, which comprises an additional offering of 90 seats per flight.
The existing daily flight service to Toronto in Canada operating a Boeing 767 rounds off the airline’s offering to North America. “North America has potential. Our flights are very popular, which is why we are increasing their frequency. In the summer of 2014 we will expand our offering to North America by about 30 percent”, says Karsten Benz, CCO of Austrian Airlines. “We are growing on long-haul routes, strengthening our flight service to the USA and expect 130,000 more passengers in 2014”, he adds.

New cabin for all Austrian long-haul flights
Austrian Airlines converted its entire long-haul fleet and installed a new modern cabin: All passengers travelling on Austrians’ long-haul flights benefit from the advantages of its new cabin which include a new level of seating comfort in Economy Class, an advanced board entertainment system offering non-stop entertainment, as well as innovative Business Class seats capable of being transformed into entirely flat beds.
And as before, the award-winning DO & CO service will be provided for passengers’ culinary pleasure.
Flights can be booked either online at www.austrian.com or in travel agencies.
