Austrian Airlines CCO Michael Trestl had this to say on the deal:

“On some regional routes, the demand has not fully returned after the pandemic.”

“To continue connecting these routes to our Vienna hub in the future, we need adjusted capacity structures.”

“I am pleased to have found a dedicated partner in Braathens Regional Airlines in this challenging segment”.

Adding to this was Ulrika Matsgård, CEO of Braathens Regional Airlines:

“We are very excited about the collaboration with Austrian Airlines and hope to further develop it over time.”

“We have extensive experience in providing this type of service at a high quality level and look forward to offering it also in the Austrian market”.

All eyes will be on how this new deal performs, as well as whether there is scope to expand this further going into the future.
