Austrian Airlines resumes flights to Shanghai

Austrian Airlines has made this announcement:

Austrian Airlines will fly to Shanghai again from October 2, 2020. After several postponements of the resumption due to the dynamic market situation, the return to China is now fixed. A Boeing 767-300 will fly from Vienna to Shanghai every Friday. The return flight will take place the following Sunday. Further connections to China are a conceivable option for Austrian Airlines.

The long-haul portfolio of Austrian Airlines is thus expanding to include another destination. In addition to Shanghai, Austria’s home carrier already flies to Chicago, New York and Washington, among others.
