SINGAPORE - Austrian
Airlines is launching its inaugural flights into Singapore
in June, coming years after sister airline Lauda Air left
the scene in the late 1990s.
It will operate three flights from Singapore to Vienna and
three from Singapore to Melbourne.
Kuala Lumpur, which connects Vienna with Sydney five times
a week, will see the frequency increasing to six.
Austrian is aggressively marketing itself in the region,
with increased frequencies in New Delhi, Beijing and Bangkok.
"We will focus on the premium sector and the Central and
Eastern European market, pursuing a clear niche strategy,"
said Austrian Airlines group chief commercial officer Dr Josef
The airline will be launching its fares at the NATAS Fair
in Singapore next month. (TravelWeekly)
