The Austrian Business Chamber is proud to announce that our national carrier Austrian Airlines started its operation to Cape Town.


• Twice per week to the city on the Cape Peninsula
• Flights will be operated deploying a Boeing 777

During the night from Saturday to Sunday at 10:30 p.m. local time, the first Austrian Airlines flight landed in the South African metropolis of Cape Town. Austrian Airlines operates two flights per week in the winter flight schedule on the route connecting Vienna with the city on the Cape Peninsula. The flights will be operated with a Boeing 777 aircraft with a seating capacity for 306 people. Yesterday’s initial flight was on the latest addition to the Austrian Airlines fleet featuring the aircraft registration OE-LPF and was completely sold out. By the way, the aircraft carries the South African name “Sibanye” (we are one). Austrian Airlines also offers Premium Economy seats on this route in addition to Business and Economy Class.

“We are proud to commence flight operations on this new route and are pleased to expand our offering in the tourism segment thanks to the flights to Cape Town”, says Alexis von Hoensbroech, CEO of Austrian Airlines, commenting on the flight connection from Austria to South Africa.
