Austrian Airlines Launches Flights Between Hong Kong and Vienna

Austrian Airlines has launched flights between Hong Kong and Vienna.

Austrian Airlines will offer flights from Hong Kong to Vienna throughout the entire year with up to five flights per week, operated with Boeing 777 aircraft.

The duration of flights from Hong Kong to Vienna, at a distance of more than 8,700 km, is 12 hours and 30 minutes.

For many years Vienna has ranked among the worlds most liveable cities. Its cultural scene is firmly established at the international top table, and it is also one of Europe's most important business hubs. These are all factors that are valued not only by the local population, but also by international business people, students and the more than six million tourists who visit the city each year, said Norbert Kettner, Vienna Tourist Board Managing Director. Direct flights between Hong Kong and Vienna will provide even more positive stimulus for the capital. The new route marks another step towards realizing our 2020 tourism strategy which will see the addition of 20 direct flights to Vienna from major cities worldwide thanks in no small part to the first-class support of Austrian Airlines, which has been our most important strategic partner for 14 years now.

Austrian Airlines is part of Lufthansa Group, which operates flights to its major European hubs from six cities in Greater China, namely Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Qingdao, Shenyang and Hong Kong.

For example, Lufthansa offers daily flights from Hong Kong to Frankfurt and Munich. SWISS also operates one flight each day to Zurich.

Austrian Airlines new flights complement the current offer by Lufthansa group in Greater China. With over 90 weekly flights, differentiated schedules and three diversified onboard products, Lufthansa Group becomes more attractive to the local market, said Dieter Vranckx, Vice President for Lufthansa Group Airlines Asia Pacific.
