Austrian Airlines is the national carrier of Austria, and is a subsidiary of Lufthansa. They believe in providing a high quality of service to customers, and this is just what is embodied by the caption in their logo "We fly for your smile".
The carrier uses Vienna International Airport as its main hub, and since mid-2012 all its flights have been operated by Tyrolean Airways, which is a subsidiary of Austrian Airlines. It is a member of Star Alliance, which means that it offers an even more extensive range of destinations to passengers.
The airline flies to many destinations in Europe and the Middle East, and passengers in Saudi Arabia can easily connect from Riyadh and Dammam. They may then make Austrian Airlines online bookings to travel on the route of their choice.
The fleet contains Airbus, Fokker and Bombardier aircraft for short and middle-haul flights, and Boeing aircraft for long-haul ones.
Passengers can make use of the Austrian Airlines online check-in service starting from 36 hours before their flight departure time. During the check-in process they would be able to select the seats of their choice and print out their boarding passes, to shorten their waiting time at the airport. It is also advisable to check the status of their reservation a few hours before the flight with their Austrian Airlines PNR status.
On board the aircraft, you can experience the hospitality of the airline starting with the comfortable seating and the special dietary meals to satisfy all palates and requirements. These meals may be pre-selected at the time of making your booking, or up to 48 hours before the time of the flight. If you have taken the advantage of a "red upgrade", other special services would apply both at the airport as well as on board. Some of these include the Fast lane security check and a designated free seat next to you on the plane. For more queries, please contact the customer service of the airline here.
According to the Austrian Airlines baggage allowance, passengers in Economy would be allowed to check in 1 bag of up to 23 kg in weight, and those in Business Class may check in 2 bags of up to 32 kg. Hand baggage may weigh up to 8 kg. Your ticket would display the baggage allowance as well for your easy reference. More details of baggage policy may be found here.
