Lufthansa group member Austrian Airlines will suspend services between Mumbai and Vienna, most likely from the start of the Summer 2012 time-table which will commence from end March.
Austrian is facing seat load factor pressure from the two other members of the group; Swiss and Lufthansa. All three members of the group, have departures from Mumbai to their Europe hubs within 20 minutes of each other. In fact the Austrian flight to Vienna and the Swiss flight to Zurich are within 5 minutes.
Austrian being the newest member of the group to operate at Mumbai is facing the most pressure. The airline will continue with its service to New Delhi.
