Austrian Airlines to resume flights to New York – JFK and Montreal

Austrian Airlines has revealed that it will resume flights to New York – JFK and Montreal in May.

Starting May, Austrian Airlines will fly from Vienna to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Montreal’s Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport three-times-a-week.

The national flag carrier of Austria is already flying to Newark Liberty International Airport, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan. With the resumption of flights to New York’s JFK Airport, it takes the total flights to New York to eight.

Michael Trestl, CCO, Austrian Airlines, said:

With five destinations in North America and three in Asia, including Tokyo and Bangkok, our long-haul services are back on a slight climb this summer. Unfortunately, however, we are still a long way from reaching cruising altitude. We hope that a rapid increase in the vaccination rate and a corresponding relaxation of travel restrictions will give us a further boost in the future
