Then there will be an Additional three destinations to America in the number of routes offered, to New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. The New York route will be thrown at least five times a week.

Benz, who's only been on the board of directors for a month, is particularly keen to expand the operations from Vienna.

To fly the route the Boeing 767s that were freed up from the Bombay route will be used.
