Austrian Airlines launched non-stop flights between Chicago and Vienna on May 17, 2013. The flights operate five times a week and use a Boeing 767 aircraft featuring the airline’s new long-haul cabin with fully-flat beds in business class.
Passengers on the flights benefit from Austrian’s extensive route network in central and eastern Europe covering 43 destinations including Tel Aviv, Pristina (Kosovo) and Podgorica (Montenegro).
An added benefit for Vienna passengers is that the Austrian Airlines boarding pass can be used to receive free or reduced-rate access to museums and galleries as well as for offers/discounts in top restaurants and shopping outlets in Vienna.
Austrian now offers a total of 26 non-stop flights a week from four North American cities – Chicago, New York, Washington DC and Toronto – to Vienna.
