Austrian arrows to axe 14 CRJ200s/DHC-8-300s
Austrian Airlines (Vienna) has announced it can no longer efficiently operate its 50-seat aircraft operated by Austrian Arrows (marketed as Austrian arrows) (Tyrolean Airways dba) (Innsbruck and Vienna). As a result it will begin phasing out the CRJ200 fleet at the beginning of the 2010 summer season. The company will also reduce its DHC-8-300 fleet and partly replace them with larger DHC-8-400s. In total 14 aircraft will be removed from the fleet of 55 aircraft. An unspecified number of jobs will also be eliminated at the subsidiary.
