Beginning April 29, 2019, Austrian Airlines, Austria’s home carrier, will introduce year-round flight service to and from Montreal – Vienna. The long-haul flights will operate with a Boeing 767 aircraft. Service will occur daily throughout the summer schedule and five times per week during the winter season.
With Austrian’s new gateway in Montreal, the Lufthansa Group is now fully represented in this region, offering international routes from all three of the Group’s passenger airlines – namely Lufthansa and SWISS. Currently, Lufthansa offers daily flight service from Montreal to Frankfurt with an Airbus 340-300 and daily to Munich with an Airbus 330-300. SWISS flies daily from Montreal to Zurich with an Airbus 330-300. Lufthansa group customers can choose between 15,000 weekly flights to more than 300 destinations through the four European hubs (FRA, MUC, ZRH and VIE). Now, all passengers in the Montreal area will have the entire Lufthansa Group at their disposal and even more options to choose from when flying to Europe and beyond.
“Montreal has always been an important market for the Lufthansa Group, and now with Austrian Airlines’ new route to the region, the Group’s complete offering to the area has elevated the customer experience in terms of worldwide reach, premium products, quality service and flavorsome culinary options,” said Hans DeHaan, Senior Director, Lufthansa Group Canada.
“Tourisme Montréal, the Alliance de l'industrie touristique and the Office du tourisme de Québec are pleased to welcome Austrian Airlines to Montréal. The airline’s presence is sure to strengthen the city’s position as a major North American hub,” said Yves Lalumière, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal.
Star Alliance partner airline, Air Canada, will also begin year-round, daily non-stop service between Toronto and Vienna on April 29, 2019, onboard its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. These flights will operate five times weekly during the winter season and daily throughout the summer season. The flight connection between Vienna and Toronto will also be bookable as a codeshare flight via Austrian Airlines. Canada’s largest airline will operate the same number of flights between Vienna and Toronto and feature departure and arrival times comparable to Austrian Airlines.
