In order to foster new business and tourism in Vienna, one of Emirates Airlines’ key European destination, the airlines decides to strengthen its services by adding 4 extra flights to Emirates’ daily service to Vienna from March 27th. The Austrian Trade Commission navigates us through the details.

Come summer Emirates Airlines is all set to strengthen its operations in Northern Europe by adding more flights to Austria and Germany on the back of new route announcements into Switzerland and Denmark.
Four extra flights will be added to the airline's daily service to Vienna from 27th March. The additional Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday flights will be served by an Airbus A340-500, offering 12 First Class Private Suites, 42 seats in Business Class and 204 seats in Economy.
“By providing these extra flights, we are responding to strong demand for additional capacity on the Vienna and Hamburg routes. The strengthened services will foster new business and tourism to two of our key European destinations and provide even more convenient connections to onward travel through our international hub of Dubai," said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Europe & Russian Federation.
Martin Gross, Emirates country director for Austria, Hungary and Slovakia, also added that the new additional flight schedules make it possible to connect Vienna with far more destinations. With the new flights, the seat number on the route will rise by 40 per cent.
The new flight from Vienna to Dubai leaves at 10.50pm and arrives in Dubai at 6.30am, which provides direct connections to 11 destinations in Africa and better accessibility of flights to India, the Far East and Australia, the airline said. In the other direction, the new connection will leave Dubai at 5.15pm to arrive in Vienna at 9.20pm.
The new flights will also be used for extended cargo transport, as each flight can accommodate 15 tonnes of freight.
