Austria's Largest Airports

Austria's three major airports in Vienna, Salzburg and Innsbruck ensure the country is well connected both nationally and internationally.


Schwechat International Airport - Vienna

Thanks to its favourable position right in the centre of Europe, Vienna International is an incredibly busy airport, and incredibly important for a number of European destinations, including the UK. It is also seeing an increased demand for flights to destinations in Asia and the Middle East and has in recent years enjoyed a healthy expansion in the number of low-cost carrier flights it offers.


Kranebitten Airport - Innsbruck

Kranebitten is nestled high in the Austrian stretch of the Alps. It is a busy transport hub, particularly in the winter season when it serves the incredibly popular ski and alpine industry in this area. Flights from here are local, national as well as international.


W. A. Mozart Airport - Salzburg

Austria’s largest regional airport is situated in the heart of the Alps near the city centre of Salzburg. The airport can easily be reached thanks to excellent connections to the public transport system as well as its own motorway exit. It is also the perfect starting point from which travellers can continue their journey to the surrounding summer and winter holiday resorts.
