Published: August 3, 2012
Austrian Airlines (OS) is considering increasing its leisure operations on the long-haul segment.
“There are many possibilities for OS, like the tourism incoming business from overseas,” OS CCO Karsten Benz told ATW . “We need more courage in creating new business. The leisure market is one of them,” he said.
One of the important overseas tourism markets for OS is Japan, which it serves with daily flights to Tokyo Narita. OS’s only long-haul leisure destination is the weekly seasonal Vienna-Male, Maldives flights.
