Austrian Airlines is Flying Nonstop Into EWR!

Austrian Airlines is Flying Nonstop Into EWR!

Austrian Airlines flying into Vienna out of Newark Liberty International Airport, and #HipNJ was on hand for her maiden landing!

Before toasting the jet, #HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino relaxed in the new Lufthansa Senator and Business Lounge.  Guests dined on complimentary gourmet food and enjoyed premium cocktails while waiting for their flights.  With the space’s comfortable seating, Wi-Fi access, spacious bathrooms and more, loungers almost wish for travel delays!

While in the Business Lounge, Lisa Marie gauged the excitement about this new Vienna-Newark connection from Austria’s VIPs, including Austrian Consulate General, Georg Heindl:  “Having the flight will help strengthen the ties between Austria and this part of the United States even further!” 

Once the smiling Austrian Airlines crew deemed their plane camera ready, our #HipNJ crew toured the refurbished 767.  We were very impressed; Austrian Airlines’ Business Class has totally raised the bar for the air travel industry!  Its 38 seats fully recline and come equipped with a built-in massager.  Each passenger gets their own 15-inch video screen, and an on-board chef prepares meals to their individual specifications.  Economy seating also got a shiny makeover, with new  ergonomically designed seats and large video displays.

While in the cockpit, we chatted with the jet’s pilot, Captain Helmut Haubenwaller, about why #HipNJ‘ers need to book a flight to Vienna. “Austria is one of the most beautiful countries in the world,” Captain proclaimed.  ” We have the Alps, we’ve got very nice cities, and now you can fly there in the best way possible.”

Our tour concluded with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Thomas Scharfenberger, Lufthansa’s Northeastern USA Regional Director of Sales, and Rich Heslin, Newark Airport General Manager.

Said Rich: “Austrians have a lot to gain by traveling to the Garden State.  There’s a lot of opportunity here, and so much to do!”
