Austrian Airlines will launch nonstop flights from Vienna to Boston starting in July 2024, operating up to six times per week with a Boeing 767-300 aircraft. The flight is scheduled to be year-round, according to the airline.

The flight will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays as well as every second Tuesday. Departure from Vienna is scheduled at 10:40 a.m. local time, arriving in Boston at 1:50 p.m. The return flight departs Boston at 5:10 p.m., arriving in Vienna at 7:25 a.m. local time.

The Vienna-based carrier’s 767 aircraft feature 211 seats in a three-class configuration. Austrian is overhauling its aging fleet with plans to take delivery of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner this year.

The new route will expand Austrian Airlines’ intercontinental network to 19 destinations, including six in the U.S.

“We are excited to announce Boston as a new and highly attractive destination. This expansion enhances our long-haul offering and strengthens the Vienna hub. Boston’s world-renowned universities, including Harvard and MIT, business connections, and the city’s unparalleled charm make it a fascinating and enticing travel destination, ” said Austrian CCO Michael Trestl in a press release.

“Additionally, it will be even easier for visitors and tourists from the New England to come to Vienna in the future,” Trestl continued.

Austrian Airlines is a member of the Lufthansa Group, which also owns Lufthansa, Eurowings, SWISS, and Brussels Airlines. At the time of writing, Austrian has over 60 aircraft in its fleet.
