Austrian Airlines is the flag carrier airline of Austria, headquartered in Office Park 2 on the grounds of Vienna International Airport in Schwechat, Wien-Umgebung and a subsidiary of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. Together with regional subsidiary Tyrolean Airways (Austrian Arrows) and charter arm Lauda Air, it operates scheduled services to over 130 destinations. Its hub is Vienna International Airport, with a focus city at Innsbruck Airport. It is a member of the Star Alliance.
When Austria regained sovereignty over its airspace in 1955 with the signature of the State Treaty, two separate carriers were founded, Air Austria and Austrian Airways. Neither of the two began operating flights at this stage. On 4 April 1957, the two companies finally merged to form a single airline, Austrian Airlines. On 30 September 1957, Austrian Airlines AG was founded, and the new company began to operate scheduled services on 31 March 1958, when a Vickers Viscount 779 took off from Vienna for London, England via Zurich. It launched domestic services on 1 May 1963. The airline"s transatlantic services began on 1 April 1969 with a Vienna to Brussels and New York service in co-operation with Sabena.
In 1988, the Austrian Airlines-share is introduced at the Vienna stock exchange. Austrian became a member of the Star Alliance in 2000. That year, Austrian acquired Lauda Air. Its name was shortened to Austrian in September 2003 when it rebranded its three constituent carriers. On 1 October 2004 the Flight Operations Departments of Austrian and Lauda Air were merged into a single unit, leaving Lauda Air as a brand name only for charter flights. With approval from the European Commission, Lufthansa purchased Austrian Airlines in September 2009. Since the 4th of February 2010 the Austrian Airlnes AG shares are suspended from the Vienna stock exchange
