"The arrival of China Eastern Airlines in Vienna marks a significant milestone in the aviation history between Austria and China. This new connection not only opens up direct flight options between Vienna and Shanghai, but also to a large number of worldwide destinations in the renowned airline's route network. By strengthening Vienna Airport's hub function, this long-haul connection helps to deepen the economic and tourist relationship between the two countries," says Julian Jäger, CEO of Flughafen Wien AG.

"Before the pandemic, China was already one of the most important long-distance markets for Vienna, with over half a million guest overnight stays. China Eastern's decision to fly to Vienna from June will help us significantly in addressing the Chinese luxury segment, which we focus on," adds Vienna's Tourism Director Norbert Kettner happily.

Vienna - Shanghai 3x per week

From June 22, 2024, China Eastern Airlines will fly three times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) between Vienna and Shanghai. The departure time in Shanghai is at 01:30, arriving in Vienna at 07:40. The return flight from Vienna departs at 11:20 and arrives in Shanghai at 05:20 the following day.

Shanghai, one of the largest cities in the world and a major industrial and commercial metropolis in China, serves as a major transportation hub in the country. The Port of Shanghai is one of the busiest ports in the world, while Shanghai Pudong International Airport is the second busiest airport in China. In addition to its economic importance, Shanghai has also developed into a center for culture and education. The city attracts visitors with famous landmarks such as the Bund, the Oriental Pearl Tower and the futuristic skyline of the Pudong district, as well as a variety of other tourist attractions.

China Eastern Airlines, based at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, operates an extensive route network to destinations worldwide. With a fleet of around 800 aircraft, the airline has the world's youngest and largest wide-body fleet, consisting of leading commercial and technical models in China. As a member of the SkyTeam alliance, one of the largest airline alliances in the world with 18 member airlines, China Eastern Airlines offers its passengers a wide range of flight connections and services.
