MoreAustrian Airlines has agreed to cease to operate between Salzburg and Vienna as the rail journey is under three hours.
Flights will cease on July 20. In their place comes an improved ‘Airrail’ service with fast trains running between Salzburg and Vienna airport hourly between 0500 and 2030. These trains will carry the OS flight code. Business class customers go first class on the train.
This is a similar solution to that forced on Air France a few weeks ago (stop/restrict domestic flights if you want to get financial assistance from the government)
