About People’s

People's (formerly People's Viennaline) is an Austrian airline. It operates scheduled passenger flights between St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport in Austria and Vienna International Airport. They also offer seasonal and charter flights to other European destinations.

The airline's inaugural flight was not operated until 2011, even though the company was founded in 2010. The airline initially offered one flight from St.Gallen Alternhein Airport (ACH). However, it didn't operate its first flight until 2011.

This airline is well-known for offering a service between St.Gallen Altenrhein Airport, ACH, and Friedrichshafen Airport, FDH. The flight took just eight minutes to travel and was the fastest international route at that time. The airline ended the service in 2017 because of the environmental impact it would have if it continued flying the route.

People's was originally known as People's Viennaline, but it changed its name in 2018 when it rebranded.
