Birmingham Airport and Eurowings are set to launch a new service to Vienna from March 26.

The six times weekly operation to Austria’s capital city is in addition to the carrier's current programme to Dusseldorf and Hamburg. All services are planned with an A320 aircraft configured to 180 seats.

William Pearson, the airport's aviation director, said: “Eurowings is an important partner of Birmingham Airport as it already serves two routes to Dusseldorf and Hamburg which are hugely important to the Midlands Engine and the region’s leisure market.

“We’re therefore very pleased that the airline will be launching a new route from Birmingham to Vienna this summer and I’m sure that it will be welcomed by customers looking for somewhere exciting to explore for leisure, as well as offering a convenient schedule for passengers travelling on business.”
