Vienna Airport has welcomed an increase in its long-haul connectivity with the resumption of Air India’s service from Delhi. The route is operated three times weekly with the 787-8 and was celebrated with a special ceremony at Vienna Airport.

The inauguration was attended by His Excellency, Mr Jaideep Mazumdar, Ambassador of India to Austria; Sachin Verma, Airport Manager-FRA of Air India; and Nikolaus Gretzmacher, Senior Vice President Operations, Vienna Airport.

“Vienna is once again directly connected to Delhi,” said Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO, Vienna Airport. “The resumption of direct flights operated from Vienna to India’s capital city region has now been ensured by Air India, which comprises a gratifying success. India ranks among the world’s largest economies and Delhi is the country’s most important business centre. From a tourism perspective, the metropolis is also an attractive destination. In turn, Vienna is an important market for Indian tourism. We are pleased with the restoration of the flight connection and look forward to continuing our good partnership with Air India.”

Air India is the only airline to fly non-stop between Austria and India. It flies from Vienna Airport every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday to its hub – Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport.

“The relaunch of our non-stop Delhi-Vienna flights is an important step forward in our five-year transformational plan, Vihaan.AI, which – among other aspects – aims at strengthening Air India’s global network,” said Nipun Aggarwal, Chief Commercial and Transformation Officer, Air India. “The Delhi-Vienna route will further aid the growing traffic between India and Austria, given the strong and growing trade and investment relations between the two countries. We are confident that travellers will appreciate having the choice of flying non-stop from Vienna to Delhi and beyond to other destinations, and we truly look forward to welcoming them aboard the transforming Air India.”
