Airline Flies to More than 20 Destinations in Former Soviet Union
Vienna-based Austrian Airlines is further expanding its already extensive network of flights to Russia and the countries that made up the former Soviet Union, says Paul Paflik, Austrian's General Manager, North America. In April, Austrian will commence service to both Sochi and Nizhniy Novgorod - increasing the total number of Russian cities served to seven.
Marking its 50th anniversary this year, Austrian was one of the first Western airlines to serve Moscow. The airline also flies to St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Rostov and Yekaterinburg.
A member of the Star Alliance, Austrian is known for its vast network in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia, as well as for its superior transatlantic service that features an on-board chef to present six-course meals. Flights from Vienna to Sochi and Nizhniy Novgorod will be operated by Fokker 70 aircraft.
Austrian Airlines operates the only non-stop flights to Vienna from New York, Chicago, Washington and Toronto. Austrian flies to more than 130 cities in 66 countries with a fleet of more than 100 Boeing, Airbus and Fokker aircraft. Austrian Airlines passengers can earn miles on Austrian's Miles & More or United Airlines Mileage Plus programs.
