In the absence of demand, which is also due to the numerous travel warnings, Austrian Airlines is reducing the range of flights to Germany and Switzerland. Sometimes frequencies are reduced, smaller aircraft are used, or connections are made with a stopover.
According to the company, the offer to Switzerland and Germany is to be reduced for the time being. It is currently not planned that routes will be completely discontinued, but the Austrian Airlines commercial aircraft will operate these less frequently. The carrier is planning to use smaller machines in Switzerland in particular. The destinations Leipzig and Nuremberg will be served in the form Vienna-Leipzig-Nuremberg-Vienna in the future. The measures should initially apply until the end of October 2020. It is still open whether there will also be cuts in the direction of the Netherlands and Belgium. According to Austrian Airlines, a decision has not yet been made, the situation is currently being monitored.
