AUA puts on larger aircraft due to Lufthansa strike

Austrian Airlines is "wherever possible" using larger aircraft on its routes to carry passengers affected by today's Lufthansa strike.

In total 32 flights between Germany and Austria are planned for cancellation on Friday, this means one quarter of all planned flights will not go ahead.

From Vienna the main cancellations affect fights to Munich, Hamburg and Dusseldorf.

However a spokesperson for Vienna's Schwechat Airport said there would not be too many disruptions at Vienna airport.

On eleven routes and 22 flights Austrian Airlines has used larger aircraft's for flights to Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Dusseldorf.
