Germany’s Eurowings to launch Vienna service from Birmingham Airport

Birmingham Airport has announced the launch of new service to Vienna operated by German low-cost carrier, Eurowings, commencing March 26, 2017.

The home city of Mozart, Beethoven and Sigmund Freud, Vienna is located in the east of Austria on the Danube River. Austria’s cultural and political centre, Vienna’s attractions include several imperial buildings as well as museums showcasing works by Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt as well as other artists.

Eurowings’ new six times weekly flight service will arrive Birmingham from Vienna at 1845 hours on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and depart Birmingham at 1930. On Tuesdays, the flight will arrive from Vienna at 1905 and depart Birmingham at 1945 hours; and on Sundays, the flight will arrive from Vienna at 1430 and depart Birmingham at 1510 hours. All services will be operated using an A320 aircraft with 180 seats.

The new service to Austria’s capital city is in addition to Eurowings’ current programme to Dusseldorf and Hamburg. Headquartered in Cologne, Eurowings is part of the Lufthansa Group.

William Pearson, Aviation Director for Birmingham Airport, said: ‘Eurowings is an important partner of Birmingham Airport as it already serves two routes to Dusseldorf and Hamburg which are hugely important to the Midlands Engine and the region’s leisure market.

‘We’re therefore very pleased that the airline will be launching a brand new route from Birmingham to Vienna this summer and I’m sure that it will be welcomed by customers looking for somewhere exciting to explore for leisure, as well as offering a convenient schedule for passengers travelling on business.’

‘We are pleased to announce a new Birmingham link to Vienna’, said Ivan Orec, Manager Network Development & Airport Relations for Eurowings. ‘The new route will operate six times a week from the end of March 2017, in addition to our 18 weekly services to Dusseldorf and three weekly services to Hamburg. We will continue to grow our network and to bring more passengers through Birmingham Airport’.
