Austrian Airlines will add a new long-haul destination in North America to its flight schedule in the summer of 2017.
Starting on April 10th, 2017, a Boeing 777 will take off to Vienna from Los Angeles, up to six times a week.
“After Chicago, Newark and Miami, Los Angeles is now the fourth new flight destination and the so far biggest leap into the USA.
“We will fly to the West Coast with our existing fleet and are already very excited about this new venture,” said Austrian Airlines chief commercial officer, Andreas Otto.
Initially, the Los Angeles-Vienna route will be served seasonally in the summer 2017 flight schedule.
Angelenos will particularly enjoy the direct access to Vienna on the country’s home air carrier.
One of the great European capitals, Vienna was the stomping ground for the Habsburg rulers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for centuries.
The empire is long gone, but reminders have been preserved by the Viennese.
Past artistic glories thrive due to the cultural legacy of the artistic geniuses nourished in this city—including Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss, and Gustav Klimt.
Today’s visitors discover a city with a special grace and a cohesive architectural character that sets it so memorably apart from other European cities.
Austria, at large, is a country that has not forgotten the elegance of a time gone by.
