Los Angeles return for Austrian Airlines.....

Austrian Airlines red and white planes are back in Los Angeles as the carrier rebuilds its route network, initially, the red flag carrier offers five weekly flights. 

Starting in July, the airline will offer six weekly connections on Boeing 777 aircraft linking Vienna with the City of Angels. The carrier will fly the 9.900km distance in around 12 and half hours for the rest of its summer timetable, until the middle of October. 

“With Chicago, Washington and two airports in New York, we are already very well represented in the East of the USA. We are very happy to offer non-stop flights to the west coast again with our route to Los Angeles”, says Austrian Airlines CCO Michael Trestl. “The million-strong metropolis of Los Angeles is a popular holiday destination for many Austrians and hub for connections with our partners. With our new destination, we are expecting a balanced amount of local and transfer passengers, who will connect in Vienna.” 

Julian Jรคger, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport, adds: “Directly from Vienna to the popular Hollywood metropolis: Los Angeles is a great city and the perfect starting point to travel the West Coast of the USA. Flights to the United States are generally very popular and I am pleased that after two years of pandemic, the flight schedule is now being expanded again to include five frequencies per week to Los Angeles in addition to New York, Newark, Chicago and Washington.”
