Austrian Airlines will offer summer flights to the Maldives for the first time this year.
From July 2014, the airline will launch weekly flights between Vienna and Male, with services leaving the Austrian capital every Thursday and returning from the Maldives the following day. All flights will be operated using a twin-aisle Boeing 767-300 aircraft. Prior to 2014, Austrian had only flown to the Maldives during the winter.
The expansion of its Maldives operates follows Austrian’s return to Iran. From 11 March 2014, the airline will operate five weekly flights to the country’s capital Tehran.
It will also increase the frequency of its Vienna-Delhi route from five weekly flights to daily from 30 March 2014.
