• A Boeing 767 will be used for this route

Austrian Airlines will fly to Shanghai again from 2 October. After several postponements of the resumption due to the dynamic market situation, the return to China is now fixed. A Boeing 767 will fly from Vienna to Shanghai every Friday. The return flight will take place the following Sunday. Further connections to China are a conceivable option for Austrian Airlines.
“We are very pleased to be able to return to China with regular passenger flights”, says Austrian Airlines board member Andreas Otto. “A second weekly flight to Shanghai is on our wish list.”
The long-haul portfolio of Austrian Airlines is thus expanding to include another destination. In addition to Shanghai, Austria’s home carrier already flies to Chicago, New York and Washington, among others.
On the Austrian Airlines website, passengers will find up-to-date information on travel in times of corona, flight schedules, mask requirement or rebooking regulations. The information is updated on an ongoing basis. Furthermore, passengers will also find the current entry regulations for their respective destinations.
