With Austrian's new redup service, Economy Class passengers can now enjoy the benefits of Business Class more quickly and easily than ever before: if you don't need full ticket flexibility, for example, but value the Business Class comfort, you can simply book an Economy Ticket with the upgrade in a single process at www.austrian.com. Passengers who are undecided can also upgrade later online - up to a few hours before departure. The upgrade can also be organised at travel agencies. And passengers who decide on the spur of the moment can even use redup with Web Check-in: the offer is available as long as there are Business Class seats free. You can also upgrade for just one leg of an Austrian return flight. Using redup lets you fly Business Class without paying the full price.
Austrian red|up - not just any old Business Class ticket
The Austrian redup differs from a full-value Business Class ticket in that it features the Economy Class luggage allowance limit (1 item weighing 23 kg), and it is bound by the rebooking and cancellation conditions of the chosen Economy fare. It always includes the following:
• Luggage drop-off at Business Class desk
• Fast lane in Austrian Star Alliance Terminal at Vienna Airport
• Access to Business Lounge
• Seat comfort of Austrian Business Class
• Culinary highlights by DO & CO on board
Luggage allowance limits, rebooking and cancellation conditions and the level of mileage credit depend upon the way in which the upgrade in questions is booked.
