Set to commence in July 2024, Austrian Airlines is poised to inaugurate a year-round nonstop flight from Vienna to Boston, marking a significant milestone in the carrier’s expansion strategy.

With an initial plan to operate up to six flights per week on a year-round basis, this new international route promises smooth connectivity between Austria and Boston on the East Coast of the United States.

The new long-haul route will be operated by the carrier’s Boeing 767-300 fleet.

Long-Haul Expansion

Michael Trestl, the Chief Commercial Officer of Austrian Airlines, exudes enthusiasm as he unveils the airline’s strategic move. “We are thrilled to announce Boston as a new and highly attractive destination,” he declares.

This expansion not only enriches the airline’s long-haul portfolio but also fortifies the position of Vienna as a prominent international hub.

Boston’s allure lies in its rich tapestry of academic institutions, vibrant business landscape, and undeniable charm.

Home to prestigious universities such as Harvard and MIT, the city beckons travelers with its intellectual vibrancy and cultural richness. Moreover, its robust business connections make it an enticing destination for professionals and entrepreneurs alike.

Operating on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, along with every second Tuesday, the flight schedule caters to diverse travel preferences.

Departing from Vienna at 10:40 am and arriving in Boston at 1:50 pm local time, the journey promises efficiency and comfort for passengers.

Expanding Intercontinental Reach

With the addition of Boston, Austrian Airlines expands its intercontinental network to encompass a total of 19 destinations worldwide.

Boasting connectivity to over 125 cities globally in 2024, the airline reaffirms its commitment to facilitating seamless travel experiences for passengers.

Michael Trestl emphasizes, “The expansion of our long-haul network reinforces our standing as Vienna’s premier airline, fostering greater connectivity for both business and leisure travelers.”
