Etihad begins operating direct flights to Vienna

The new service will be operated on Thursdays and Sundays using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft

Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways has launched its inaugural flight to Austrian capital Vienna – the first of a new twice-weekly service between the two cities.

The new service will be operated on Thursdays and Sundays using a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, offering 28 seats in business class and 262 seats in economy class.

Vienna is a five hours and 50 minutes flight from Abu Dhabi.

Travellers from the UAE who have received all Covid-19 vaccination doses at least 14 days before arrival, including Sinopharm and Pfizer, currently do not have to quarantine in Austria or Abu Dhabi, where Austria is on the green list.

All of the pilots and cabin crew on the flight to Vienna have been vaccinated.

The first flights, EY147, departed Abu Dhabi International Airport at 7.30am on Sunday and landed in Vienna Airport at approximately 11.20am.

Vienna marks the 65th passenger destination added to Etihad’s network.

Tony Douglas, group CEO at Etihad, said: “After successfully launching Mykonos, Santorini and Malaga earlier in July, we’re delighted to now introduce flights to Vienna.”

Julian Jäger, CEO and COO of Vienna Airport, added: “We welcome Etihad as a new airline to Vienna Airport. Etihad is a strong carrier with a far-reaching route network, and we are delighted with its decision to launch regular scheduled flights to Vienna. The United Arab Emirates in particular is an important market for Austrian tourism, and the new flight connection is a good sign that things are slowly picking up again.”
