Qatar Airways has announced plans to upgrade services on its Vienna route with the introduction of an A330 aircraft.

The upgrade from an A320 to the A330 aircraft will commence on September 1, and will increase the total number of weekly seats servicing the route to 336 Business Class seats and 3,304 Economy Class seats, a rise of 168 and 1,624 seats respectively.

Günter Saurwein, Qatar Airways country manager Germany & Austria, said: “We are extremely pleased that we are now able to offer an increase in capacity by introducing the A330 to the route in order to help meet the growing needs of our passengers.” 

Julian Jäger, Vienna Airport board member, added: “Our cooperation with Qatar Airways has worked well for many years, and we see the sound development of traffic on this route as a very positive factor.

"We therefore welcome the changeover to a larger aircraft and the resulting expansion of capacity on these flights. This will further enhance the role of Vienna Airport as a gateway to the Middle East.”

Over the next few months, the airline's network will grow further with Larnaca, Cyprus (April 29), Hofuf, Saudi Arabia (May 15), Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport, Turkey (May 22), Edinburgh, Scotland (May 28), Miami, US (June 10), Haneda, Japan (June 18) and Dallas/Fort Worth, US (July 1).
