It’s now possible to fly from the UAE to Austria nonstop on a low-cost airline, as Air Arabia has begun flying from Sharjah to Vienna.
The non-stop six-hour flight to the Austrian capital will operate four times a week, with scheduled service on Sundays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Daily flights are expected to begin by mid-December.
Air Arabia has already been offering direct flights to Vienna from its hub in Morocco since October 2018. It currently operates flights to more than 170 routes across the globe from four hubs in the Middle East and North Africa.
Vienna Airport CEO and COO Julian Jäger said: “In recent years, we have seen a significant rise in number of tourists from the UAE and Vienna is a popular destination amongst Arab travellers.
“The city of Vienna greatly benefits from Air Arabia’s new direct flight connection to Vienna Airport. We have registered close to 13 per cent growth on flights to the Middle East since the beginning of the year. We look forward to welcoming even more visitors from the Middle East.”
