NEW DELHI: National carrier Air India today launched its direct non-stop flight to Austrian capital Vienna from here, with a Boeing B787 Dreamliner aircraft.

It will be operated thrice a week.

The direct flight will meet a long-standing need of Indians in Austria and neighbouring European cities as well as of locals visiting India, Air India said in a release.

"The new service assumed significance in view of the strong relationship that India and Austria have been sharing in tourism, education, industry, culture etc. The new service will cater to different segments of air travellers," Air India Chairman and Managing Director Ashwani Lohani said.

The Delhi-Vienna flight will offer easy connection to over 25 destinations in Europe, Air India said, adding major tourist attractions include the imperial palaces of the Hofburg and Schönbrunn (also home to the world's oldest zoo) and the Riesenrad in the Prater.

The airline currently operates to 35 international destinations across the US, Europe, Australia, Far East and South East Asia and the Gulf.
