Austrian Airlines is the national airline of Austria and is based at Vienna International Airport. Along with its regional subsidiary, Tyrolean Airways, and charter arm, Lauda Air, the carrier operates both domestic and international networks, particularly to Eastern Europe and the Middle East.  On 1-Jul-2012, as part of its restructuring and cost reduction programme, Austrian transferred all of its mainline services to Tyrolean. At least 110 pilots refused the transfer, accepting instead very generous redundancy terms. The carrier continues to operate under the Austrian Airlines AOC and under the Austrian brand. Austrian Airlines is a member of the Star Alliance.
