Austrian Airlines now fly to Sri Lanka.
The Vienna Colombo route is currently tagged as costing 684 euros return.
“In addition to the Maldives and Mauritius, Sri Lanka is yet another destination in the Indian Ocean“, explains Andreas Otto, Chief Commercial Officer of Austrian Airlines. ”In this way we are increasingly focusing on long-haul tourist destinations which are particularly in demand during the winter months.”
Also known as the Spice Island, Sri Lanka is mainly of interest to tourists who want to enjoy the local culture, relax on the beaches or get to know the country and its people within the context of an active or adventure holiday.
Austrian Airlines is Austria’s largest carrier and operates a global route network of round 130 destinations. That route network is particularly dense in Central and Eastern Europe with 39 destinations. Thanks to its favourable geographical location at the heart of Europe, the company’s hub at Vienna International Airport is the ideal gateway between East and West. Austrian Airlines is part of the Lufthansa Group, Europe’s largest airline group, and a member of the Star Alliance, the first global alliance of international airlines. The flight operations of the Austrian Airlines Group have been bundled at its 100% subsidiary Tyrolean Airways since 1st July, 2012.
The Star Alliance network was established in 1997 as the first truly global airline alliance to offer worldwide reach, recognition and seamless service to the international traveller. Its acceptance by the market has been recognized by numerous awards, including the Air Transport World Market Leadership Award and Best Airline Alliance by both Business Traveller Magazine and Skytrax.
