Los Angeles here we come as Austrian Airlines adds its first-ever route to U.S. West Coast

(Austrian Airlines)

Austrian Airlines will make Los Angeles its newest U.S. destination. The carrier will begin flying from the city on April 10 with service to its hub in Vienna.

Austrian will offer up to six flights a week during its summer schedule on Boeing 777 aircraft. The California-bound flight is scheduled for 12 hours, 30 minutes while the return to Austria is scheduled for 11 hours, 55 minutes.

The Los Angeles route -- Austrian's first-ever to the West Coast of the United States -- furthers a recent U.S. expansion by Austrian. It has also added service to Chicago O’Hare, Miami and Newark Liberty since the beginning of 2013.

“After Chicago, Newark and Miami, Los Angeles is now the fourth new flight destination and the so far biggest leap into the USA,” Andreas Otto, Austrian’s Chief Commercial Officer, says in a statement. “We will fly to the West Coast with our existing fleet and are already very excited about this new venture. Initially, the Los Angeles-Vienna route will be served seasonally in the summer 2017 flight schedule.”

Los Angeles will become Austrian’s sixth destination in the United States and its seventh in North America. Its others are Chicago O’Hare, Miami, New York JFK, Newark, Toronto and Washington Dulles.

Austrian expects “about two-thirds” of the passengers using its Los Angeles-Vienna route to connect to other destinations via its Vienna hub.

Austrian is part of the Lufthansa group that includes not only Lufthansa, but also Swiss International Air Lines and Eurowings. The Lufthansa Group also owns a minority stake in Brussels Airlines.
