Hainan Airlines Resumes Shenzhen – Vienna Direct Flights

Vienna’s aviation landscape is witnessing a significant recovery in long-haul flight services.

Vienna Airport announced that Hainan Airlines, the largest privately owned airline in the People’s Republic of China, will once again link Vienna and the high-tech metropolis of Shenzhen as of 29 May 2024.

This route re-establishes a crucial link between China and Austria, highlighting China’s critical role in Vienna Airport’s market strategy. The flights will be operational throughout the year, offering services twice a week.

The resumption of the Vienna-Shenzhen route by Hainan Airlines marks the end of a four-year hiatus caused by the global pandemic.

Now, with a grand return planned for May 2024, the airline is poised to strengthen the aviation ties between Austria and China once more.

“Hainan Airlines, one of China’s most important airlines, is returning to Vienna Airport. After a four-year break, it is once again possible to take off directly to the metropolis of Shenzhen.

We are very pleased to be able to renew our good cooperation with Hainan Airlines!”, states Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport.
