Today, Austrian Airlines became the Official Airline of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Vienna, the capital of the country next May.
“We are pleased to announce Austrian Airlines as a partner of the Eurovision Song Contest and are sure with their help the event will fly even higher in 2015,” says Jon Ola Sand, Executive Supervisor of the contest on behalf of the EBU.
As the Official Airline of the Eurovision Song Contest, Austrian Airlines has been granted pan-European media, association, event and new media rights for the upcoming events in Austria.
“As the official airline for the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 we are proud to fly people from all over Europe to this unique music show hosted in Vienna,” says Andreas Otto, CCO of Austrian Airlines.
Austrian Airlines is Austria’s largest carrier and operates a global route network of round 130 destinations. That route network is particularly dense in Central and Eastern Europe with 39 destinations. Thanks to its favourable geographical location at the heart of Europe, the company’s hub at Vienna International Airport is the ideal gateway between East and West. Austrian Airlines is part of the Lufthansa Group, Europe’s largest airline group, and a member of the Star Alliance, the first global alliance of international airlines.
The 2015 Eurovision Song Contest is set to take place on the 19th, 21st and 23rd of May next year at the Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna, Austria.
