Why Fly With Austrian Airlines

  • Awarded as the “Best Airline Staff Service In Europe” in 2015
  • Austrian Airlines is a Star Alliance member. If you are already a member of the ‘Miles and More’ frequent flier programme with Lufthansa or Egypt Air – good news! You can earn miles for this programme flying with Austrian Airlines (or any of the other Star Alliance member airlines) as well!
  • On short- and medium- haul flights (Cairo – Vienna is considered medium haul) in the Business Class section, every passenger will have an open seat next to him or her, marked “reserved for your comfort.” These seats remain open throughout the entire flight. On long-haul flights, Business Class travelers have seats that fold down to a fully-flat bed.
  • Economy Class travelers have the option of purchasing an upgrade to an exit row seat on medium-haul flights for 40 EUR.
  • Short movies are broadcasted on plane monitors during short-haul flights in both the Economy and Business Class sections. For medium-and long- haul flights, travelers in the Economy Class have access to over 100 hours of on-demand movies, TV, and music on 23 centimeter, personal touch-operated screens. Travelers in the Business Class section can experience their on-demand entertainment on a 38 centimeter touchscreen monitor.

Online check-in opens 36 hours prior to departure, and ends one hour before take-off. You will need your E-ticket number or booking code in order to check-in online. If you have luggage to check in, find one of the “Baggage Drop” counters (at terminal 3 in Vienna) to leave your luggage. You cannot use online check-in if you are flying with a codeshare partner.

Austrian Airlines offers routes from Cairo to 34 destinations worldwide – all with a connection in Vienna, Austria. Most of these 34 destinations are found in central Europe. One destination – Bangkok – is in Asia.
