Additionally, the government implemented a flight tax of €12. A further €30 tax will be levied upon flights of less than 350 kilometers. These taxes are meant to encourage regional rail transportation.
Austrian Airlines announced it would resume operations on June 15, following the closure of operations due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
The initial restart will focus on European destinations and Tel Aviv in the Middle East, with such steady ramp-ups resulting in around 40 destinations becoming operational by the end of June. ■
