Read article


Austrian Airlines, the flag carrier of Austria, has recently announced that it will be adding ten Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft to its fleet. This move is a significant step for the airline, as it aims to modernize and streamline its operations while improving its passengers' experience.

Characteristics of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner

The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is a wide-body, long-range aircraft that is designed to be more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly than its predecessors. It is equipped with the latest technology, providing a comfortable and quiet ride for passengers. The Dreamliner also has a range of up to 14,800 kilometers, allowing Austrian Airlines to expand its network and offer non-stop flights to new destinations.

Austrian Airlines has been a member of the Lufthansa Group since 2009 and operates a fleet of Airbus A320 and Boeing 767 aircraft. The addition of the Dreamliner is a significant investment for the airline and is part of its long-term strategy to modernize its fleet and improve its efficiency.

The first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is scheduled to be delivered to Austrian Airlines in the spring of 2023, with the remaining nine aircraft being delivered by 2024. The new planes will be used to replace the aging Boeing 767 aircraft, which will be phased out gradually.

Boeing 787-9 – Modern design and advanced technology

The Dreamliner's modern design and advanced technology will provide a range of benefits for Austrian Airlines' passengers. The aircraft's larger windows and improved air quality systems will create a more comfortable and relaxing cabin environment. The Dreamliner's reduced noise levels will also contribute to a more pleasant flying experience for passengers.

In addition to improving the passenger experience, the Dreamliner's fuel efficiency and reduced carbon emissions will also benefit the environment. The aircraft's use of lighter materials and advanced aerodynamics means that it uses 20% less fuel than similar-sized aircraft, resulting in lower emissions and reduced operating costs for the airline.

Austrian Airlines: Network expansion and flights to new destinations

Austrian Airlines has also stated that the addition of the Dreamliner will allow it to expand its long-haul network and offer non-stop flights to new destinations. The aircraft's extended range will enable the airline to fly non-stop to cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Singapore, which were previously only accessible through connecting flights.

In conclusion, Austrian Airlines' decision to add ten Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners to its fleet is a significant step for the airline. The Dreamliner's modern design, advanced technology, and fuel efficiency will benefit both the airline and its passengers. The addition of the new aircraft will allow Austrian Airlines to expand its network and offer non-stop flights to new destinations, providing a more convenient and enjoyable flying experience for its customers.
