Austrian Airlines will resume flights to China after a halt of several months.
It will be a phased restart with just one flight a week from Vienna to Shanghai.
Flights will operate on Fridays to Shanghai starting on 2 October with the return leg on Sundays.
It plans to ramp up service frequency over time and may resume flights to Beijing.
“We are very pleased to be able to return to China with regular passenger flights. A second weekly flight to Shanghai is on our wish list,” said airline board member Andreas Otto.
It becomes the third Lufthansa Group full-service airline to restart flights to China after Lufthansa and Swiss.
In addition SAS is restarting flights from Scandinavia to China on 29 September.
The Copenhagen to Shanghai flight, operated by new Airbus A350 jets, will also operate once a week initially.
