Austrian Airlines is calling Los Angeles with immediate effect

As of now, Austrian Airlines operates flights to a new long-haul destination in the USA. The largest long-haul aircraft in the Austrian Airlines fleet, a Boeing 777, will be deployed up to six times per week on flights to Los Angeles, the biggest city in California. Thus the airline offers its first flight service to the West Coast of the USA.

“We are already well represented in the eastern part of the USA, operating flights to Chicago, Miami, Washington and two airports in New York. We are pleased to offer new flights to Los Angeles, and thus add the West Coast to our flight schedule for the first time in the history of Austrian Airlines”, explains Austrian Airlines Chief Financial Officer Heinz Lachinger.

Los Angeles is the fourth new destination in the USA to be added to the airline’s route network during the last four years, along with Chicago, Newark and Miami. However, Los Angeles is not only interesting for point-to-point flight traffic but especially for transfer traffic. About two-thirds of the passengers will transfer flights at the Vienna flight hub.

In total, Austrian Airlines offers up to 37 non-stop flights per week to the USA in its 2017 summer flight schedule. Up to four weekly flights are operated to Miami, up to six times per week to Los Angeles, and up to seven flights each week to both Washington and Chicago. Austrian Airlines will continue to operate thirteen flights a week to the New York airports of Newark and JFK.

Austrian Airlines will only fly to Los Angeles within the context of its summer flight schedule. The flight duration from Vienna to Los Angeles at a distance of about 9,900 km is approximately 12 hours 30 minutes. The flights to Los Angeles are thus the longest in the Austrian Airlines route network.
