Dr. Andreas Bierwirth to become Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) from 1 April 2008

Dr. Peter Malanik to become Chief Operations Officer (COO) from 1 January 2008

At today's ordinary Supervisory Board  meeting  of  Austrian   Airlines  AG,  the proposal of the Nomination Committee was accepted when  the  Supervisory  Board appointed  Dr. Peter Malanik  as  Chief Operations  Officer (COO) with effect from 1 January  2008,  and  Dr. Andreas  Bierwirth  as Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) from 1 April 2008.

The President of the Supervisory Board, Dr. Peter Michaelis, made the following statement  on  the  decision:  "Having  implemented  a   rapid  and  professional application and selection procedure, we can present two top managers with  wide- ranging experience in the field and  international  backgrounds.  Dr.  Bierwirth and Dr. Malanik convinced us impressively  that  they  would  implement  future- oriented and targeted strategies in their respective scopes  of   responsibility. For me, the appointment of one internal and one external candidate provides  the ideal mix of continuity and fresh thinking needed. I am convinced that the four- member Board of Management in its new form will be better equipped to  meet  the challenges of the industry and lead an  independent  Austrian   Airlines  into  a successful future."
