Suspension of Flights
Air India suspended flights on the Delhi-Vienna-Delhi route in March 2020 following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the resumption of services, Air India hopes to capitalise on the growing demand for international travel and provide easy connectivity for Indian travellers to several popular destinations in and around Vienna.
Air India’s Commitment
According to Nipun Aggarwal, Chief Commercial and Transformation Officer, Air India;
“A key element of Air India’s Vihaan.AI transformation is to keep enhancing connectivity between India’s major cities and leading global destinations. Adding this new service to Vienna, following the recent service to Milan, reiterates our commitment to this mission.”
This nonstop service will allow Indian travellers to easily access a number of popular destinations in and around Vienna, including Hungary, the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and France.
This non-stop service will also benefit a sizable Indian diaspora in Austria, as well as Europeans planning to visit various cities in the Indian subcontinent or continue on to other cities in South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Far East, and Australia.
