Flight and cabin crew of Tyrolean Airways, which operates under Austrian Airlines, have agreed to a new pay deal aligned with the rest of the group. The agreement came “just in time to prevent the possible reorganisation of the airline”, confirmed Austrian Airlines’ CEO Jaan Albrecht. Under the agreement the new wage framework will take effect from December 1 and Tyrolean’s flight operations will transfer to Austrian Airlines on March 1, 2015. “We now have a new starting point for a new, unified Austrian Airlines – flown by Austrian, operated by Austrian. We can now concentrate on designing the future. This includes the modernisation of the fleet,” said Albrecht.
