The international carrier would rather prefer to have another long-term destination such as Mumbai on its network to India.
Talking to newspersons here today, the Austrian Airlines country manager (India), Bernhard Baeck, said the daily Delhi-Vienna flight was made operational yesterday, marking its sixth anniversary of operations to Delhi. He said the airlines was seeking permission from the Government for Mumbai-Vienna connection.
Encouraged by the response on the Delhi-Vienna sector with a load factor of around 80 per cent, the airlines introduced additional four frequencies, making it "Daily to Delhi.'' The route is being served by an Airbus A-330-200 aircraft which offers a new, upgraded business class product with sleeper seats, more space than any other airline and Indian meals, Hindi movies and Hindi announcements for Indian travellers on all its flights to Delhi.
The aircraft has 24 seats in the business class and 235 in the economy class configuration. The flights are being operated with code-share arrangement with Air India.
Mr. Baeck said the Airlines also offered convenient, seamless and comfortable connections to the U.S., Canada and Europe from Vienna.
He said Vienna emerged as one of the most popular hubs, boasting of 25 minutes "minimum connecting time.''
A member of the Star alliance, world's largest alliance of 17 major airlines, the Austrian Airlines group serves 120 destinations all over the world.
