There will be less going on at Graz Airport in the future because KLM is suspending the Amsterdam connection. In addition, Austrian Airlines is sending the non-stop flights to Stuttgart and Düsseldorf into a second “Corona break”. The resumption will take place in mid-January 2021 at the earliest, an AUA spokesman confirmed to Aviation Direct.
The Lufthansa subsidiary only celebrated its comeback on the two decentralized routes from Graz at the beginning of October. However, the occupancy rate fell - also due to the forced quarantine introduced by Germany. Austrian Airlines has now pulled the "emergency brake" and is pausing the destinations Graz and Düsseldorf from the state capital of Styria. According to a spokesman, the carrier is aiming for resumption in mid-January 2021. The actual implementation depends on the further course of the pandemic.
The connection to the AUA hub in Vienna is not affected. This will continue to be served according to the current planning status. This is to ensure the connectivity of Graz. From Klagenfurt, the domestic route to the capital was sent to a second Corona break. There, the sister company Eurowings is also temporarily suspending the Cologne / Bonn destination.
