Austrian Airlines History

Austrian Airlines was formed in 1923 by Walter Barda-Bardenau and the Austrian Government, who placed the newly formed airline under the control of the national rail authorities and the Junkers aircraft group. Over the years, the airline has seen many changes and now operates the majority of its flights to Eastern Europe and Asia. During the course of the 21st century, the number of passengers has grown on a regular basis with over 11 million passengers flying with the airline in 2013.

Austrian Airlines Airports and Destinations

Now under the ownership of Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines maintains its headquarters and central hub at Vienna International Airport and focuses on a number of cities in Austria and Germany. The most popular routes operated by Austrian Airlines are those in central and eastern Europe, but 2014 saw the launching of a number of new routes to North America and north Africa.

Austrian Airlines Services

As the flag carrying airline for Austria the airline has its focus largely on business travellers and providing the most luxurious options for all passengers. A full refit of its existing Boeing fleet and the arrival of new Airbus planes saw the inclusion of a chef for business class passengers on long haul flights. More leg room has been added for all passengers, which includes economy cabins that are now equipped with personal screens and on-demand video options.
