Austrian Airlines (OS, Vienna) will wet lease in E195 capacity from sister airline Air Dolomiti (EN, Verona) between June 1 and October 2024 to cover for a damaged A320-200N.

The Italian carrier will operate Austrian's route from Vienna to Venice Marco Polo, maintaining the current frequency of 4x daily departures.

"The wet lease cooperation with Air Dolomiti allows us to minimise the impact of the damaged Airbus A320neo. We are delighted to have found a strong partner within Lufthansa Group in Air Dolomiti," Chief Commercial Officer Michael Trestl said.

OE-LZQ (msn 11467) was damaged during a collision with airport infrastructure after arrival from London Heathrow on April 6, 2024. There were no passengers on board during the incident and, consequently, no injuries, but the aircraft sustained severe damage.

Austrian Airlines operates four more A320-200Ns, as well as twenty-nine A320-200s, three A321-100s, three A321-200s, three B767-300ERs, six B777-200ERs, and seventeen E195s. It also wet leases two ATR72-600s from BRA - Braathens Regional Airways for the thinnest regional routes.

In turn, the ch-aviation fleets module shows that Air Dolomiti operates six E190s and seventeen E195s.
