Austrian Airlines extends flight suspension until the end of May

Following the instigation of worldwide travel restrictions caused by the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, there is still no demand for air travel insight, The Austrian Ministry of Health announced that the current landing bans will also remain in place for a longer period of time. 

Therefore, Vienna based Austrian Airlines has decided to extend the suspension of its normal flight schedule for another two weeks, from May 18 to May 31, 2020.

Austrian Airlines can only envisage a slow resumption of regular flight operations in June at the earliest. Nevertheless, Austrian intends to closely monitor the further development and will only resume flight operations when demand picks up again.

“Unlike some competitors, we want to avoid empty flights at all costs. We will only take off when a new start makes sense for Austrian Airlines and when the ease of travel restrictions makes this possible”, comments Austrian Airlines Chief Commercial Officer Andreas Otto on the plans of the red-white-red airline.
