Austrian Airlines ready to re-launch Tehran service in March

by amit.uniyal 23. January 2014 07:08

Austrian Airlines has announced that it would once again start flying to Tehran. The European airline is all set to commence flights to the Iranian capital from March 11, 2014. The airline has terminated service to the city owing to financial sanctions and fluctuations in the currency.

As per the announcement the Vienna-based airline will offer flights to the city pair five times a week. It will deploy Airbus A319 on the route. The news has triggered a wave of happiness amongst the travelers and passengers of Tehran. The city is a prominent gateway into the Asian country. Most business travelers to the country fly to the capital city for work. The city is also one of the major links to popular European countries. This flight will establish direct connections to Europe, something that the country needs.

As per the schedule, Austrian airways will depart Vienna at 8:10 pm and arrive in Tehran at 3 am the next day.  Return flights will depart Tehran at 3:55 pm and arrive in Vienna at 6 am.

The airline seems to be rapidly expanding its network across the world. It also intends to boost service to London Heathrow from Vienna. However, nothing is certain at point in time.

As far as the airline is concerned, at present, it flies to about 120 destinations worldwide. The airline, which was established in 1957, operates out of its hub in Vienna International Airport. Its focus cities comprise Graz Airport, Innsbruck Airport, and Salzburg Airport.
