✈Austrian Airlines Vienna-Sarajevo winter flight reduction

In winter timetable, Austrian Airlines flights from Vienna to Sarajevo will see additional reduction. Compared to last year’s winter schedule when Austrian Airlines operated 12 weekly flights between two cities, this year schedule will see reductions from 4 to 2 additional weekly flights. Reduction in number of operated flights is due to increased capacity. In winter season Austrian Airlines used to operate Sarajevo flights with a mix of Fokker 70/100 aircraft. As of November, Austrian Airlines is retiring its Fokker fleet (Austrian Airlines sold its Fokker fleet to Australian Alliance Airlines for $15 million US). All previous flights operated with Fokker aircraft will be replaced with larger Embraer 195 aircraft. Austrian Airlines Embraer 195 aircraft has capacity to accommodate 120 passengers while Fokker 70 capacity was 70 seats and Fokker 100 capacity was 100 seats. Month of February will see biggest reduction in flights when weekly number of flights will fall to only eight flights.
