VIENNAAustrian Airlines reported that fleet resizing measures are in "full swing", with 10 of the airline's original 18 Bombardier Q400s already removed from the fleet since measures were announced in spring 2020.



The carrier plans to phase out the remaining eight aircraft by the end of summer 2021. Austrian Airlines is looking to phase out three of its six Boeing 767s by the end of 2021 and will also retire one A319 every month from summer 2021 for a total of seven removed by the start of 2022.

COO Jens Ritter explains why this change is so important: “Like all airlines, Austrian will be a smaller airline after the pandemic. The winner of the crisis will be whoever can adapt to the New Normal with the greatest possible flexibility. In any case, we are working at full speed on it. "
