Vienna marks the 65th passenger destination in Etihad’s network. Speaking about the launch, Tony Douglas, Etihad group chief executive, said: “After successfully launching Mykonos, Santorini and Malaga earlier in July, we’re delighted to now introduce flights to Vienna.”

Vienna Airport chief executive and chief operating officer Julian Jäger added: “We welcome Etihad to Vienna Airport. Etihad is a strong carrier with a far-reaching route network, and we are delighted with its decision to launch regular scheduled flights to Vienna. The United Arab Emirates in particular is an important market for Austrian tourism, and the new flight connection is a good sign that things are slowly picking up again.”

The new route will be serviced by Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, comprising 28 seats in business class and 262 seats in economy.
