Airbus superjet coming to Vienna for one-off visit

The world's largest passenger airliner, the Airbus A380, is coming to Vienna International Airport for a one off visit on 26 May.

The event marks a decade of services from Emirates airline to Austria. Set to replace the Dubai-Vienna flight on May 26, the double-deck, four engine super jet run by Emirates will become the first ever scheduled A380 flight to Vienna International Airport.

Over two millions passengers have travelled between Vienna and Dubai on Emirates services since 2004 and now there are 13 flights a week.

The airline’s chief commercial officer, Thierry Antinori, said: "Austria has become a key business and leisure destination for Emirates, in addition to a strategic gateway to the burgeoning economies of Central and Eastern Europe."

In a statement Antinori said that, having already expanded services in Europe, Australia, Mauritius and the US, the company hopes that Vienna will become the next on a growing list of cities served by its 47 A380s.
