Austrian Airlines has announced the launch of flights to a number of islands in Greece as of July.
According to the company's announcement, the airline will offer the following holiday charters: Chania, Corfu, Heraklion, Karpathos, Kos, Rhodes, Santorini and Zakynthos.
From July onwards, Austrian Airlines aircraft will take off to regular long-haul flights for the first time since mid-March. The first planes will take off for London, Paris and Brussels, among others.
"June demand is good, considering the circumstances. This means we can continue to increase our capacity", says Austrian Airlines CCO Andreas Otto.
"I am particularly pleased that long-haul flights can finally take off again in July, as they are particularly important for Austria as a business location and for Vienna as a hub," he continued.
The airline’s flight schedule for August is currently being prepared.
In Europe, the following destinations will be added to the almost 40 destinations already announced: Bologna, Florence, Moscow, Podgorica, Rome, Sibiu, Venice and Zagreb. Cairo will be added to the Middle East portfolio.
The airline has also extended the period for rebooking flights at no charge. Tickets which have already been booked or which will first be booked before 30 June 2020 for flights until 30 April 2021 can now be rebooked to a new travel date up until 31 December 2021 (latest start of the new trip). Passengers have until 31 January 2021 to specify a new flight date. The ticket will be held in abeyance up until then and the value of the ticket will remain unchanged.
Passengers are required to wear a mouth-nose covering on board Austrian Airlines aircraft as well as at Vienna Airport. All passengers are asked to bring their protective masks themselves, as is required when using other means of public transport.
