Austrian Airlines abandons the Vienna - Dubai route

0 406

The commercial aviation industry is constantly expanding, and airlines are launching new routes, ordering aircraft and making plans for the future, but do not forget the idea that everything is a business. The competition is very good, but up to a point. In a press release issued on July 20, 2015, Austrian Airlines announces that it is giving up the Vienna-Dubai route.



Austrian Airlines is in direct competition with Emirates on this route, with the two airline operators managing to offer up to 800 daily seats. This has led to overcapacity and fierce price competition, and the route is no longer sustainable for the Austrian operator.

In the last year, Austrian Airlines has operated the Vienna-Dubai route with Boeing 767-300ER aircraft configured in two classes (36 + 178 or 26 + 199), while Emirates uses Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.

Austrian Airlines has started flying to Dubai since 1996, but the last flight will be operated from Dubai to Vienna on 14 September 2015.

But Austrian Airlines is not worried about the seats left vacant after giving up the Vienna-Dubai route. From 16 to October 2015, Austrian Airlines will operate flights to Miami, United States of America, with a frequency of five times a week. Starting with 27 October 2015, Austrian Airlines will fly every Tuesday to Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka. And from 29 to October 2015, Austrian Airlines will fly twice a week (Thursday and Saturday) to Mauritius.
