Austrian Airlines will not carry out the resumption of the Düsseldorf-Linz route announced for November 2, 2020 for the time being. According to a company spokesman, the new date is "mid-January 2021".
The carrier's decision is bad news for Linz because there will be no regular Star Alliance flights until further notice. The connection to the Frankfurt am Main hub continues to be paused for an indefinite period of time. Austrian Airlines did not provide any specific information about the postponement of the reactivation of Linz-Düsseldorf. However, it can be assumed that the imminent forced quarantine in Germany and the announced lockdown measures could have played a role.
