By expanding our long-haul network, we are offering our passengers a diverse travel program, increasing our presence in the international market, and strengthening our hub in Vienna.”

Julian Jager, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport, added: “The USA is the most important long-haul market for Vienna Airport. With the new direct connection to Boston, our home carrier Austrian Airlines is expanding its North America offering. Boston, one of the oldest cities in the USA, offers numerous cultural and historical highlights. The modernisation and expansion of the Austrian Airlines long-haul fleet to eleven Boeing 787 Dreamliners increases the attractiveness of North American travel and gives Vienna’s economy and tourism an important boost at the beginning of summer.”
