Via European Flight Academy, the pilot school of the Lufthansa Group. European Flight Academy trains pilots for Austrian Airlines and all other airlines of the Lufthansa Group.

Austria’s largest airline awaits you with its over 13 million passengers every year and 130 destinations. As a member of Lufthansa Group, Austrian at present has approx. 7,000 employees from over 60 countries. There can hardly be a more beautiful workplace than in a cockpit.
