Austrian Airlines has its headquarters in Vienna, Austria. It was created in 1957, following the merging of Air Austria and Austrian Airways.
Following economic difficulties, the airline went private and was bought by Lufthansa on the 3rd September 2009. Its fleet currently consists of 98 aircraft including Airbuses, Boeings, bombers and Fokkers. It serves more than 130 destinations around the world.
The Austrian company was among the first to join an international alliance, when it entered the Qualiflyer Group in the early 90s, under the aegis of Swissair. Following disputes with Swissair, Austrian Airlines abandoned the alliance and joined the Star Alliance.
In 2002 Austrian Airlines acquired Lauda Air, allowing the former to expand into the domain of charter flights. The alliance resulted in the creation of Tyrolean Airways, which specialises in regional flights.
Austrian Airlines has nearly 25 daughter companies, including Tyrolean Airways and Lauda Air. It is itself one of German airline Lufthansa’s daughter companies.
On board long haul flights, passengers can enjoy personal entertainment systems (individual TVs), while business class passengers will benefit from an onboard cook who prepares fresh meals. Austrian Airlines has received several international awards for quality service on board (food and hospitality), both on long haul and short flights.
As a member of Star Alliance, Austrian Airlines offers a frequent flyer program called Miles & More, which allows passengers to collect points, which can then be exchanged for reductions on future bookings.
