Heathrow lands new Austrian service

German low-cost carrier Eurowings has expanded its network from the UK with a new service connecting Heathrow to Salzburg.

The new flights will operate twice weekly on Wednesday and Saturdays, arriving from Salzburg at 13:50 and departing London at 14:35. All services are planned with an A319 aircraft configured to 180 seats.

Not only will the flights provide a boost to winter sports enthusiasts looking to escape to the Alps over the Winter period, but it will also provide a boost to businesses in the South East who have interests in Austria.

The country offers numerous opportunities, particularly in the energy, infrastructure, manufacturing, services, life sciences and security and defence sectors. It is also a gateway to surrounding markets in Central Europe.

Simon Eastburn, airline business development director at Heathrow, said: “As ski season approaches, we’re delighted to welcome this new flight to Salzburg with Eurowings, an exciting winter destination for passengers looking for a winter holiday." 

Eurowings is headquartered in Cologne and serves a network of domestic and European destinations as well as some long-haul routes. The fastest growing airline in Europe already operates flights to Cologne, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Berlin from Heathrow.

Ivan Orec, network development and airport relations manager for Eurowings, said: “We are pleased to announce our new Heathrow service to Salzburg, Austria. The new link to Salzburg will operate twice a week in addition to our five routes from Heathrow. We will continue to grow our network and to bring more passengers to Heathrow airport.”
