As part of its ‘vacation offensive in the cold season’ initiative, Austrian Airlines will commence an increase in the frequency of flights to Maldives. As of now, the airline is currently operating two flights a week to Male’. Austrian Airlines will increase the frequency to three times a week as the weather in Europe gets colder.
Austrian Airlines is preparing for passengers to postpone summer holidays in favor of some winter sun whereas most European airlines are predicting a travel boom during summer season. In addition, the airline is launching new routes to Mexico and resumption of flights to Mauritius for the winter of 2021.
“People are longing for vacations, long-distance travel, and the sea. That’s why we will be focusing on attractive long-haul destinations in the coming winter flight schedule to satisfy our passengers’ desire to travel. I am confident that by then, many people worldwide will have been vaccinated that travel will once again be possible without severe restrictions” stated COO of Austrian, Michael Trestl.
