There will be six flights a week to Vienna running every day except Saturday from September 17, reducing to four times a week from the start of the winter schedule in October.
Passengers on the route will travel on board the airline’s Airbus A320s and return fares start from £115 including taxes and charges.
Seven further routes will launch from Gatwick this summer including Heraklion, Bodrum, Dalaman, Cagliari, Rhodes, Funchal and Sharm El Sheikh.
