The summer is fast approaching with its fantastic weather. Austrian Airlines is expanding its flight offering to Spain and Italy just in time for the upcoming bathing suit and bikini season. As of today, the airline will fly to Jerez and Bari once a week. Flights to Bari will be offered with a stopover first in Lamezia Terme.

At the beginning of the year, bookings already revealed a shift in the holiday destinations of the average Austrian. In past years, there were frequent bookings to destinations in Tunisia and Turkey. The new trend is clearly towards vacationing in Spain and Italy.
