Jazeera Airways along with the Austrian National Tourist Office and local travel agents and business partners held an event to promote tourism in Vienna as well as the rest of Austria.
Giving a presentation about Austria and its natural gems, Director for the Middle East and South East Asia at the Austrian National Tourist Office, Robert Gröblacher, said that tourists can now easily travel to Austria as vaccination and PCR tests are no longer required. He said: “We are very happy to be welcoming visitors to Austria to enjoy all that its rich history, culture and unique nature has to offer.”
One of the leading tourist destinations in the world, Austria was ranked the 11th most visited country with over 150 million overnight tourists visiting the country in 2019, of which 1.3 million were tourists from GCC countries.
The country offers visitors plenty of new experiences that range from hiking and biking trails, adventure sports opportunities, family-friendly activities, secret mountain getaways, rustic huts serving traditional Austrian foods, luxury Alpine stays, private wellness temples in the heart of Austria’s rich nature, and many other experiences.
Gröblacher said: “Austria is also one of the safest countries in the world, and with its rich landscape, was ranked 11th on the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index in 2019. Its capital, Vienna, was ranked as the greenest capital in the world with its woods, grassland, parks and gardens accounting for around half its area. It was also named the city with the highest quality of living for 10 consecutive years.”
For his part, the spokesperson for Jazeera Airways added that Jazeera is launching yet another new tourist destination for its customers to enjoy a restrictions-free vacation this summer. Austria offers them great active and relaxing escapes, ideal for the whole family. We look forward to flying them with direct flights from Kuwait to Vienna, with flights to Vienna being operated on Mondays and Thursdays, starting from 23 June.
