Press releases & news
A new destination has already been announced for the summer season 2016. As of April 29, 2016, Jet2.com will offer flight service from Vienna to Edinburgh. The British airline will connect the Scottish capital with Vienna twice a week.
Scotland and the North of England in particular are very attractive touristic regions. We are excited that Jet2.com is opening its second route out of Vienna into this region, after Manchester., says Julian Jäger, Member of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG.
Steve Heapy, Chief Executive of Jet2.com, said: Vienna is an important part of our network and we are pleased to introduce Edinburgh as a new scheduled service, finally enabling Austrians to reach Scotland directly from Vienna Airport throughout the season. Our existing scheduled service between Vienna and Manchester has proved to be hugely successful at both ends of the route, and were confident our loyal Austrian business and leisure customers will appreciate the increasing choice and frequency of the Jet2.com schedule.
Twice weekly from Vienna to Edinburgh
The aircraft from Edinburgh will arrive in Vienna on Monday and Friday at 5:30 p.m. and depart from Vienna for the return flight at 6:10 p.m. The British airline with eight hubs in Great Britain has won multiple awards, for example the Group Travel Award 2012 Best Airline for Groups, Globe Travel Award 2012 Best Short Haul Airline, Scottish Passenger Agents Association (SPAA) Award 2011 - Best Low-cost Airline, Telegraph Travel Award 2011 Runner Up Best Short Haul Airline, and the 2010 British Travel Award for Best Trade Booking Website (Flights) Bronze Award.
