• From November, USA entry for fully vaccinated EU travellers again possible
• AUA offers 16 weekly connections to the United States
• Michael Trestl: "After more than 20 months, the opening is an important step towards restoring global freedom of travel".
The US authorities have lifted the travel ban for European passengers that has been in place since March 14, 2020. As of November 1, fully vaccinated EU travellers will be allowed to re-enter the US. "We welcome the decision of the US government. After more than 20 months, the opening for fully vaccinated EU citizens is an important step towards restoring global freedom of travel", said Austrian Airlines CCO Michael Trestl. This means that people – whether business travellers, tourists or those who want to visit their family – will finally be able to enter the United States again. "At the same time, the lifting of the entry ban also brings an important boost to transatlantic air travel and thus the opportunity to return to a pre-crisis level of service", CCO Michael Trestl continues.
