New 2018 winter schedule from Austrian Airlines

Routes including Hong Kong and Colombo to be discontinued from the end of October 2018; frequencies to Chicago and New York will increase.

Austrian Airlines is reorganising its flight network in the 2018 winter schedule. A number of unprofitable flights will be cancelled with effect from the end of October 2018. These include Hong Kong, Havana and Colombo. Isfahan and Shiraz will be removed from the schedule in mid-September 2018. Miami will become a summer-only route from 2019. Passenger affected by the changes will be rebooked.

Where are frequencies increasing? Austrian Airlines’ new winter schedule will offer more flights to North America and China. Direct flights from Vienna to Chicago will depart daily, with six flights a week available to Newark. New York (JFK) will be offered up to six times a week, increasing frequency by up to three flights. The Toronto, Beijing and Shanghai routes will all feature one extra flight a week, taking the total to five. Cape Town will be added to the portfolio of destinations on 27 October.
