Braathens Regional Airlines announces today a new ACMI contract with Austrian Airlines, part of Lufthansa Group, to support their operations.

From 30 March 2024 and one year ahead, Braathens Regional Airlines will provide Austrian Airlines with two ATR 72-600 and crew, based in Vienna. The aircraft is one of the most fuel-efficient regional aircraft in the world.

We are very pleased with this collaboration with Austrian Airlines and hope to develop it over time. We have extensive experience of operating this type of service at high-quality levels and look forward to offer this in the Austrian market as well, says Ulrika Matsgård, CEO of Braathens Regional Airlines.


On some regional routes, the demand has not fully returned after the pandemic. In order to continue connecting these routes to our hub in Vienna in the future, we need adapted capacity structures. I am pleased to have found a dedicated partner in Braathens Regional Airlines in this challenging segment," says Austrian Airlines CCO Michael Trestl.

Passengers can expect exceptional service, reliable operations and a comfortable travel experience aboard the flights provided by Braathens Regional Airlines.
