Austrian Airlines, which halted operations on March 19 amidst the coronavirus pandemic, said it would restart 40 flights in June, with additional routes to be added in July.

The move will restore approximately 5% of the carrier’s service, compared to last year’s schedule in the same period. The restart will focus on destinations in Europe.

“We all are pleased that Austrian Airlines is finally flying again,” said the airline’s chief commercial officer, Andreas Otto.

The first 27 routes to restart will include Amsterdam, Athens, Berlin, Brussels, Bucharest, Frankfurt, Geneva, Hamburg, London, Munich, Paris, Sarajevo, Stockholm, Tel Aviv, and Zürich.  Austrian will begin to operate those routes on June 15.

The country’s flag carrier will reintroduce ten additional routes in the week of June 22, including service to Belgrade, Innsbruck, Milan, Nice, and Prague.

At least three additional routes will restart before the end of the month.

The carrier hopes to restart long-haul operations in July, providing, it said, it has sufficient feeder traffic.
