Rumors have been circulating for a few days that Austrian Airlines will soon take over two Airbus A320s from the Eurowings Germany fleet. Even the registrations are circulating in various forums. However, the AUA denies this.
The Austrian Lufthansa subsidiary recently took delivery of the first Airbus A320neo. A second unit is to be flown in this year. Two more machines of this type have been announced for spring 2022. In addition, rumors have surfaced that AUA is to take over two Airbus A320ceo from its sister company Eurowings Germany.
Specifically, it should be about the machines with the current registrations D-AIZS and D-AIZT. According to Austrian Airlines, what has already been celebrated in some aviation forums is not true.
A spokeswoman for Austrian Airlines told Aviation.Direct on this subject: "We cannot confirm such a takeover". This means that the four brand-new Airbus A320neo will remain in service.
