Austrian Airlines Increases Services

The Austrian Airlines Group is concentrating its programme of scheduled connections between Austria and North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany’s most populous federal state. From the beginning of the winter schedule on 26 October 2003 onwards, Austrian Airlines will introduce a third daily flight on the Vienna-Cologne/Bonn-Vienna route and on the Salzburg-Dusseldorf route.

This new improvement in service means that departures to Cologne/Bonn from Vienna will be available at 07.05, 17.35 and now also 19.40 six days a week. In the opposite direction, travelling from Cologne/Bonn to Vienna, the Austrian Airlines Group will now take off at 08.05 throughout the working week in addition to its existing slots of 11.05 and 17.35.Ê

A new service to Dusseldorf will now operate from Salzburg via Linz at 06.45 every morning and 17.15 in the afternoon, while a direct flight will connect Salzburg and Dusseldorf at 12.05 on workdays. In the opposite direction, departures from Dusseldorf will operate at 09.35 (via Linz), at 15.20 (non-stop) and 20.15 in the evening (via Linz).Ê

The Austrian Airlines Group is maintaining its already extensive range of services connecting Vienna, Graz, Linz and Dusseldorf. This programme currently includes six flights between Vienna and Dusseldorf every week, and three each from Graz and Linz to the city on the Rhine. This winter, the Austrian Airlines Group will now provide a total of 182 connections a week between Austria and the two most important economic centres in the North Rhine-Westphalia region, Dusseldorf and Cologne.Ê
