After today´s extraordinary meeting of the Supervisory Board, Austrian  Airlines Österreichische Luftverkehrs AG announces that Dr. Josef E. Burger  will  resign from his duties as Chief Commercial Officer at the end of September 2007 by  his own request. Dr. Burger has informed the Supervisory Board  that  he  wishes  to end his function due to irreconcilable and  different  opinions  concerning   the way of cooperation within the Management Board - regardless  of   the  successful work for the company. The contract will be terminated by mutual agreement.

In  the  meantime  Chief  Executive  Officer  Alfred  Ötsch    takes   over    the responsibilities from Dr.  Burger  as  of  today.  The   Supervisory  Board  will commission an analysis concerning the organizational structure of  the  company.

The President of the Supervisory Board Dr. Peter Michaelis  made  the following comment: "I do regret that Dr. Burger resigns and I thank him for  his  valuable activities as Chief Commercial Officer and his high  commitment.  Together  with the management team, Dr. Burger has considerably contributed to  the  successful positioning of Austrian Airlines as a specialist with  "Focus  East"  and  as  a quality carrier."
