Austrian Airlines announced last year that it was acquiring 11 Boeing 787-9 aircraft over the next four years to replace its aging Boeing 767-300ER (three in fleet) and Boeing 777-200ER (six in fleet) aircraft. The first plane is almost ready to roll and Austrian has updated its schedule to reflect it entering service.

On May 17th, Austrian will debut its first 787 between Frankfurt International Airport (FRA) and Vienna International Airport (VIE). In June, the aircraft will be used to fly between Düsseldorf Airport (DUS) and Berlin Brandenburg Airport (BER). Austrian’s first long-haul flight with the new plane will be headed to New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on June 12th. Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) will see the plane shift flying there in July.

Anthony’s Take: It’s exciting to see Austrian update and expand its long-haul fleet. Looking forward to flying this one in the future.
