Austrian Virtual | From Vienna to the World | NOW HIRING STAFF!

Our Mission Statement: Tendentes ad optimum

We are Austrian Virtual. Ever since our founding, we have strived to become one of the best virtual airlines in our region. For us, efficiency is the spine of our airline, and we pursue to keep it at a high standard by constantly updating our infrastructure for a better experience while keeping equality and achievement as our core values.

Like the edelweiss, the flower in our logo, we symbolize devotion and perseverance. Just like how one must devote their time and hard work for climbing up the Alps and obtaining the edelweiss, we are determined to do our best for our virtual airline, and we are always ready to devote our time to upkeep our core values and stand together as one family.

Why Us?

You might be wondering why you should choose us or what we offer that makes you want to choose us. After all, there are so many virtual airlines out there, each offering many kinds of new experiences and opportunities. We respect your thoughts and will explain why it would be the right choice to pick us.

Our Region

Austria is a landlocked country located slightly east of the Alps and north of Italy. It is landlocked and shares its borders with Germany and Switzerland. The close ties which exist between Austria, Germany and Switzerland make the country very important and significant to the region. However, in Infinite Flight, Austria is not represented in an adequate way. We want to change that through our virtual airline.

Our Experience

At Austrian Virtual, we promise to try and provide you with a highly professional experience. We strive to maintain a professional and realistic experience and we ensure that all our pilots and staff are up to the mark when it comes to this. We also want to provide a highly enriching experience, and to support this notion, we provide almost 2,000 routes with the help of our codeshare partners spread out all over the world.

Our Technology

We believe that the world is racing towards a more technologically-advanced future and we do not want to be left behind. To keep up with the race, we use the safest, fastest and most simple forms of technology to run all the major functions of our airline while keeping efficiency in mind. We mainly use several Airtable integrations all accessible from the touch of a button in the workspace, while also using Google Sheets and Google Docs to store important data.

Our Commitment

Finally, our commitment. As part of one family, we are committed to ensuring that everything in the airline runs smoothly and that any hiccup faced along the way is dealt with as soon as possible. We are committed to devoting our time to improve every detail, be it small or large, of our airline. But most importantly, we are committed to working hard as one large unit as one family: the Austrian family.

The Austrian Virtual fleet primarily consists of narrow-body aircraft where the A320 family and the E195 aircraft are the most dominant. These narrow-body aircraft help us connect Vienna to all kinds of destinations spread out over Europe. We also have some 767-300ERs and 777-200ERs which help us fly long haul routes to various parts of the world.

Aircraft Registration Company
Airbus A319 OE-LDA (Generic in-game) Austrian
Airbus A320 OE-LBL (Generic in-game) Austrian, Lauda Air
Airbus A321 OE-LBA Austrian
Boeing 767-300ER OE-LAE (Generic in-game) Austrian, Lauda Air

Cessna Citation X OE-ILK (Private 4 in-game) Lauda Air Executive
Embraer E195 OE-LWA (Generic in-game) Austrian



These routes are operated by Austrian Airlines and serve more than 120 destinations in 55 countries. They are mostly concentrated in and around Europe as their main function is to link all kinds of destinations in the region, be it a metropolitan city or a remote tourist destination, to Austrian's hub, Vienna. Another important function of these routes is to provide affordable, reliable and safe connections to various cities in Europe from other major hubs and vice versa, which not only helps Austrian Airlines grow but also establish Vienna as a major hub for connections.

Lauda Air / myHoliday


These routes were operated by Lauda Air, a subsidiary of Austrian, but after they merged with Austrian, these routes were renamed as myHoliday routes. They serve only 12 destinations in 10 countries but they cover more than 113,000 kilometres (70,645 miles / 61,400 nautical miles). These routes are operated by our 767s and 777s and their main function is to connect Austria to more major cities and tourist hubs. In our virtual airline, these routes can only be flown by our captains and senior captains.



These routes were operated by Austrian during their earlier days. Some of these routes were also operated during their peak times in 2017 and 2018. These routes serve 30 destinations in 23 countries and are mainly operated by their 767s and 777s. In our virtual airline, they help us fill the missing gaps in our route network and enable us to fly to every corner of the world. For us, these routes are a celebration of the legacy of Austrian Airlines. These routes can only be flown if their destinations are part of the IFATC schedule every week and if they are, they can be flown regardless of rank.

Hello everyone

We just noticed that we had put up the link to our cadet application when we are not managing them at this point of time. We would like you to note that our cadet programme has currently been put on hold and hence no cadet applications will be managed until further notice. To prevent any further confusion, we have removed the link from our thread.

We are deeply sorry if any inconvenience was caused.

Best regards,
Sooraj Rajive Kumar
