Austrian Airlines has announced the addition of a nonstop service from its hub in Vienna (VIE) to Boston (BOS) this summer.

The Austrian flag carrier has yet to reveal the exact start date of its new route. However, the inaugural flight to Boston-Logan is set to begin sometime in July 2024.

Here are the details of this exciting new transatlantic route to Austria!

Fly Nonstop to Vienna From Boston This Summer

This July, Boston-Logan International Airport will gain a nonstop service to the Austrian capital for the first time. The announcement comes right on time for those planning their summer vacations.

Austrian’s nonstop flights from Boston to the city of music, art, and culture will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and every second Tuesday. The schedule is currently planned as follows:

  • Depart Vienna (VIE) 10:40 a.m. — Arrive Boston (BOS) 1:50 p.m.
  • Depart Boston (BOS) 5:10 p.m. — Arrive Vienna (VIE) 7:25 a.m. (+1)

The flight time between Boston and Vienna is blocked for approximately 9 hours.

Compared to other European flag carriers like Air France, British Airways, or Lufthansa, Austrian has a much smaller route network. As such, Boston will become only the airline’s 7th destination in North America. This new route will join Chicago (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), Montreal (YUL), New York (JFK), Newark (EWR), and Washington, D.C. (IAD).

“We are excited to announce Boston as a new and highly attractive destination,” said Michael Trestl, chief commercial officer at Austrian Airlines. “This expansion enhances our long-haul offering and strengthens the Vienna hub. Boston’s world-renowned universities, including Harvard and MIT, business connections, and the city’s unparalleled charm make it a fascinating and enticing travel destination.”

Austrian will deploy its fleet of Boeing 767-300s on the route. These aging jets have a total of 211 seats: 28 lie-flat business class, 18 premium economy, and 167 standard economy seats.

Despite their age, these jets feature the airline’s best business class cabin, with each seat boasting direct aisle access.

Hot Tip:

As the only nonstop service from Boston to the Austrian capital of Vienna, you might want to take a look at the many ways you can use points to book Austrian Airlines flights in business class. Austrian is owned by Lufthansa and is part of the Star Alliance.

Final Thoughts

Thanks to the expansion of Austrian Airlines’ route network, Bostonians will soon get to enjoy nonstop service to Vienna. The service to the capital city of Austria will operate year-round.
