Life Ball Guests Landed in Vienna on Austrian Airlines Flight


Today at 9:38 a.m. the Austrian Airlines flight OS 088 from New York with a total of 261 passengers on board landed in Vienna. The guests included a number of stars such as Courtney Love (singer), Kesha (singer) and Marcia Cross (actress). The celebrities have travelled to Vienna accompanied by hair stylists, make-up artists and managers to ensure an unforgettable appearance at the Life Ball, an annual charity event.

With the support of the Vienna Tourist Board, Austrian Airlines specially branded a Boeing 777 on the occasion of the Life Ball. This Boeing aircraft featuring the special Life Ball design has been in operation since April 1, 2014, flying to destinations such as Bangkok and Tokyo.

Austrian Airlines takes its corporate social responsibility seriously, and supports charitable and social organizations, institutions and projects with a global relevance. The Life Ball is one of the projects with which Austria’s domestic carrier underlines its social commitment. Austrian Airlines colleagues are wearing red ribbons during this time as a sign of its solidarity. Austrian Airlines is pleased to be able to bring the prominent guests from New York to Vienna in the official Life Ball 2014 aircraft.
