For release February 6, 2001

EXPANDED AIR SERVICES BETWEEN CANADA AND AUSTRIA

OTTAWA — Transport Minister David Collenette and Foreign Affairs Minister John Manley today announced that Canada and Austria have agreed to expand opportunities for scheduled air services between the two countries.

Canadian and Austrian airlines will now be permitted to offer more frequent flights, to serve additional destinations with own-aircraft flights and to make use of code-sharing services. The agreement will also liberalize the pricing of air services between the two countries and modernize and strengthen provisions dealing with aviation safety and aviation security.

"This agreement provides better prospects for year-round scheduled air services between Canada and Austria and creates more choices for Canadians wishing to travel internationally," said Mr. Collenette. "It also further strengthens the connections between Canada and Vienna – an important air traffic hub in Europe."

"The agreement improves the opportunities for family and business travel between Canada and Central Europe," said Mr. Manley. "The Government of Canada is pleased with the potential for improved trade, investment and cultural links."

Austrian Airlines is expected to introduce daily flights to Toronto this summer. Air Canada will initially operate code-sharing services on flights to Vienna with Austrian Airlines and other partner airlines.

Are there any confirmed new flights that have come out of this yet? Or is it just the rules that have changed, because you can change all of the rules you want, but if the airlines aren't interested then it doesn't really matter.

Austrian begins YYZ flights in the spring, with the A330, but this was confirmed before this agreement was announced....I think this agreement is more aimed an permitting code sharing on the flights....for the STAR Alliance.

Thanks for the update Polaris  Smile

I believe Austrian announced it would add YYZ a few months ago, but no real firm details, as they need the ability to develop codeshares with AC to make it work. Since the time Austrian joined Star I had been expecting to see either AC or Austrian start YYZ-VIE (err, restart, that would be), so I'm quite happy to see it happening now.

"Rules" aren't changed just for the fun of it. An airline or airlines must first express an interest in serving a route. If bilateral agreements do not exist, governments then negotiate the legal rights for their respective countries ensuring equal rights to all sides. Once these rights are negotiated, an airline, or airlines, may initiate service.

This particular re-negotiation between Canada and Austria served to update and loosen up the "rules" of the previous agreement.
