Thai Airways to Launch Flights to Vienna, Austria on 16 November 2017

Thai Airways has unveiled plans to launch flights to Vienna, Austria on 16 November 2017.

Thai Airways will operate the Bangkok-Vienna flights with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft configured with 42 seats in Royal Silk Class and 306 seats in Economy Class.

The airline will operate four round trip flights per week on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Mr. Norbert Kettner, Managing Director, Vienna Tourist Board, said, Viennas appeal as a cosmopolitan city of music and culture, its globally networked economy and the multiple times it was named the most livable city in the world are just a few of the reasons for the great popularity of the Austrian capital not only among the more than 6 million tourists, who visit the city each year, but also among international businesspeople. The Thai Airways direct flight connection from Bangkok will provide further strong impetus to Vienna and marks another step towards realizing our 2020 tourism strategy, which will see Vienna firmly positioned as a European gateway city in business, science and tourism.

Data from the Tourism Authority of Thailand in 2016 shows that approximately six million tourists traveled from Europe to Thailand, an increase of 6.8% from 2015. Tourists from Eastern Europe, including those from Austria in Central Europe, ranked fifth amongst European tourist arrivals in Thailand or an increase of 10.5% from 2016.

 Currently, Thai Airways flies to 12 destinations in 10 countries in Europe: Copenhagen, Oslo, Brussels, Paris, Frankfurt, Munich, Zurich, Stockholm, London, Rome, Milan, and Moscow, which equates to more than 80 flights per week.

 During January - June 2017, approximately 3.4 million European tourists traveled to Thailand, an increase of 7% compared to the same period last year. Eastern Europeans, including Austrians, were the fifth largest group with their arrivals increasing by 17.3%.
