In Innsbruck there are Austrian Airlines flights, but they are also seasonal and fly only in the winter. The flight has the number OS 672, and the reverse OS 671. Innsbruck is almost 400 kilometers farther from Moscow than Vienna, and fly here for 30 minutes longer.
Traditionally we will tell you about the most popular aircraft on this route. This is Airbus A320, which is used by Austrian Airlines on regular flights. In the vast family of medium-haul airliners Airbus, which consists of similar in construction A318, A319, A320 and A321, the A320 is the most massive. At the time of this review, more than 3,000 aircraft are in operation worldwide.
The family of these aircraft provides the main turnover and profits of the company Airbus, to tell the truth, without them the corporation would long ago have gone bankrupt or simply left the market of passenger airliners.
For example, this situation occurred with the corporation McDonnell Douglas, which could not stand competition and was absorbed by Boeing. Some of the readers, perhaps, still managed to fly to DC-8, DC-9 or even DC-10, which now can be seen only in parking lots. By the way, one plane McDonnell Douglas DC-9 exactly costs at Domodedovo airport, we saw with our own eyes.
Salon A320 is executed under the scheme "3 + 3", as at all narrow-fuselage airliners, including its main competitor Boeing 737-800.
But, Airbus is considered more comfortable. There is more space between the seats, more space on the shelves for hand luggage. In the design process, the company's engineers tried to make the plane better than its competitors. It turned out this way, for each parameter a little bit, but better.
For those readers who are afraid of aircraft, and in particular air crashes, we will say that the Airbus A320 has very good accident statistics. Of course, the very phrase "good statistics of accidents" sounds already scary, since statistics of catastrophes can not be good.
