Austrian Airlines, which plans to restart a number of flights on June 15, announced Thursday that it will begin to offer long-haul flights starting on July 1.

The first long-haul flight to operate will be from Vienna to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, departing at 10:15 a.m. local time.  Other long-haul destinations that will start in July include Bangkok, Chicago, Newark, and Washington, D.C.

The Austrian flag carrier ended long-haul flights amidst the coronavirus pandemic in mid March of this year.

“June demand is good, considering the circumstances,” said the airline’s COO, Andreas Otto. “ This means we can continue to increase our capacity.”

The carrier said it also plans to add a number of new destinations the almost 40 it previously announced for June including Cairo, Bologna, Florence, Moscow, Podgorica, Rome, Sibiu, Venice, and Zagreb.
