“Following the successful introduction of our new fare concepts in Austria, from and to Germany and between Vienna and Altenrhein, we shall be launching a further product offensive on 1 November. Flights from Austria to Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands will be selectively reduced in price by up to 40 %. Both flexible business passengers and holiday travellers will be able to benefit from these new, target group-oriented offers,” explained Chief Commercial Officer Dr. Josef E. Burger as he presented the Group’s scheduled flight programme for the coming winter season.
Highlights of the new range of air fares:
From Austria to Switzerland, the Economy Return fare will now be available on the Vienna-Zurich route, with just 3 days advance booking, at the new rate of EUR 950 instead of EUR 985 from 1 November. The completely new Eco Super Flex fare, which requires advance booking of 5 days, is already available at EUR 690; your outbound flight must be taken between 10.00 and 15.30, with the return between 19.30 and midnight. The best fare offer to Switzerland of EUR 259 is the Visitor fare, which is applicable at weekends.
