Birmingham Airport expands into Austria

New service to Vienna launches in the summer.

Birmingham Airport and German low-cost carrier, Eurowings, will be launching a brand new service to Vienna from the 26th March.

The six times weekly operation to Austria’s capital city is in addition to Eurowings’ current programme to Dusseldorf and Hamburg. All services are planned with an A320 aircraft configured to 180 seats. Eurowings is part of the Lufthansa Group, further strengthening its presence at Birmingham Airport.

William Pearson, Aviation Director for Birmingham Airport, said, “Eurowings is an important partner of Birmingham Airport as it already serves two routes to Dusseldorf and Hamburg which are hugely important to the Midlands Engine and the region’s leisure market.

“We’re therefore very pleased that the airline will be launching a brand new route from Birmingham to Vienna this summer and I’m sure that it will be welcomed by customers looking for somewhere exciting to explore for leisure, as well as offering a convenient schedule for passengers travelling on business.”

Eurowings is headquartered in Cologne and serves a network of domestic and European destinations as well as some long-haul routes.

“We are pleased to announce a new Birmingham link to Vienna”, said Ivan Orec, Manager Network Development & Airport Relations for Eurowings. “The new route will operate six times a week from the end of March 2017, in addition to our 18 weekly services to Düsseldorf and three weekly services to Hamburg. We will continue to grow our network and to bring more passengers through Birmingham Airport”.
