Al Jaber fails to participate in capital increase

Following expiry of the purchase deadline of the rights offer in Austria  of  up to 57,120,000 new unit shares made out in  the  name of  the  holder,  Austrian Airlines AG is announcing the conclusion of its capital increase.

Result of the ordinary capital increase - overview
