The beginning of the new Vienna-Volos-Vienna flights as of May 21 that will be carried out by the Austrian "Lauda Air" airline company and will be taking place every Saturday until October 1 is expected to give a new impetus to tourist movement to Greece from Central Europe and from Austria in particular.

According to the Greek Tourist Organisation's Austria Office, this new air link will contribute to attracting the interest of many trip organisers who are aiming at enriching their programme with new less visited tourist destinations in Greece.

Greece is visited by over half a million Austrian tourists every year and Austria, in absolute figures, is in eighth place regarding foreign tourist arrivals in Greece.
