In addition, one additional flight per week will be operated to Iasi in Romania. Accordingly, the country’s flagship carrier is flying to all three destinations on a daily basis in the upcoming summer flight schedule.

Ukraine continues to be one of the most important markets in Eastern Europe for Austrian Airlines. The majority of the passengers transfer onto flights bound for Western Europe or to the North Atlantic region. Kharkov had to be removed from the flight schedule due to the ongoing crisis in Eastern Ukraine. Nevertheless, demand in the rest of country has developed positively. The Austrian Airlines flight offering in Ukraine includes Kiev, Dnepropetrovsk, Lviv and Odessa. As a result, flight service will be offered to a total of four destinations in Ukraine in the summer flight schedule, encompassing 34 non-stop flights per week.
Romania also remains an important market for Austrian Airlines. Austria’s national carrier operates flights to Bucharest, Iasi and Sibiu. In addition, flights are also offered to Cluj in cooperation with the code share partner Tarom.
