Air India started new services between Vienna and Delhi in cooperation with Austrian Airlines. The new route was officially inaugurated yesterday, April 6th 2016.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to expand our long-haul offering from Vienna with Air India. This step clearly shows once again that our Star Alliance partners will continue to rely on Vienna as a flight hub in the future” states Julian Jäger, Member of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG.
"Air India is excited about its new non-stop flight between Vienna and Delhi on a Dreamliner aircraft. It offers a lovely option to travel to India and onward to destinations such as Bangkok, Kathmandu, Colombo, Sydney, Melbourne and more. We wish that air travelers from Central and Eastern Europe, when flying to the above-mentioned places, will choose Air India for their travel with Vienna serving as their gateway. We look forward to welcoming them with a 'Namaskaar', traditional Indian greeting," says Pankaj Srivastava, Commercial Director and Member of the Board of Air India.
