The flight offering measured in available seat kilometers (ASK) was up 8.2 percent, while revenue passenger kilometers (RPK) climbed by 8.9 percent compared to January 2018.
Capacity utilization of the flights equaled 70.2 percent on average, a rise of 0.5 percentage points.
“This is a very gratifying start to the new year,” said Andreas Otto, Member of the Management Board and CCO of Austrian Airlines.
“Apparently our customers prefer to fly with a longstanding partner, whose flight schedules are reliable,” he added.
Austrian operates a route network of around 130 destinations and transports around 14 million passengers a year. The carrier has been part of the Lufthansa Group since 2009.
