Linz Airport is suffering form a reduction in flights. German airline Air Berlin announced that it was cutting the number of flights to Linz.
Between December 24th and January 2nd the Lufthansa route between Frankfurt and Linz has also been cancelled.

Airport Director Gerhard Kunesch said the victory to keep the Ryanair route was a "significant victory".

It is hoped by next summer that Air Berlin flights could be reinstated but that is dependent on the economic outlook of the airline.
