Austrian Airlines to decide to shift operations to lower cost Tyrolean Airways on April 19

Austrian Airlines (Vienna) will decide on April 19 at its board meeting whether it will transfer all mainline operations to the lower cost Tyrolean Airways (Austrian Arrows) (Innsbruck) subsidiary according to this report by Airliners.de. The flag carrier is currently at odds with its higher cost pilots who do not want to fly at the same rates as the Tyrolean pilots. Parent Lufthansa is pushing Austrian to take drastic actions to reduce costs or it will consider selling its shares in the airline. Austrian is also considering a new name for Tyrolean Airways.
