Austrian airline Laudamotion is launching a new daily service from Dublin to Vienna.
The airline will operate its year-round, daily service with an Airbus A320 aircraft.
“Laudamotion is Dublin Airport’s fifth new airline customer this year and we are delighted to welcome it to Dublin and Ireland,” said Dublin Airport Managing Director Vincent Harrison. “Vienna is a beautiful city that is rich in culture and history and I have no doubt it will be a very popular destination. We wish Laudamotion every success with its new route and we will work closely with its management team to promote this new service.”
Laudamotion’s Managing Director Andreas Gruber said “Laudamotion’s new route between Dublin and Vienna will increase the connectivity between the Ireland and the Austrian capital significantly. The new connection supports the economy as well as offers the opportunity to visit Vienna for reasonable prices. We offer our passengers a customer-oriented tariff concept with an unbeatable price-performance ratio and we are very happy to offer our flights from now on also from Dublin.”
Laudamotion is an Austrian low-cost carrier focussing on European city shuttle routes from Vienna which is part owned by former Formula 1 racing driver Niki Lauda.
