Innsbruck (INN) Airport
Innsbruck INN Airport Overview
Innsbruck Airport INN, also known as Kranebitten Airport, is a regional airport serving the Austrian state of Tyrol and its capital city Innsbruck, which likes to describe itself as the 'capital of the Alps'. Innsbruck's main season is the winter season, and it is reflected in a marked increase in passengers heading for the Tyrolean ski slopes.
The city of Innsbruck, with its medieval buildings and cobblestone walks, is well worth a visit, whether you come in winter or summer, and its surrounding picture-perfect small villages and hamlets dot the alpine scenery. In summer, you can rent a car and drive through the adjacent national park, an unforgetable ride, which will take you close to the Grossglockner summit (the tallest mountain in Austria) and down to Salzburg. You have to pay a fee, but it is definitely worth it.
The Airport is located only 2.5 miles from Innsbruck and can be reached via the A12 motorway (East-West) from Voralberg or from Germany, and via motorway A13 from the Brenner Pass & Italy.
With one runway (which cannot be extended) and an estimated 1 million passengers a year, most airlines serving the Airport are domestic airlines; however, a host of charters from all over Europe frequent the airport.
The two-level passenger terminal at Innsbruck Airport (connected by covered walkway to the parking garage) recently received expansion of departure gates 1 to 8, post-security check-point, and waiting area, and added duty-free and Travel Value shops.
Services and amenities inside the terminal include an ATM cash machine, currency exchange service, a cafe for early breakfast, a Bistro, a bakery, an 'Airport Shop' stocked with newspapers, magazines, books and convenience items; Schenker (a full-service travel agency) can take care of your travel and reservation needs (Tel: +43 512 285627).
Parking options at Innsbruck Airport include the multi-level parking garage connected by walkway to the passenger terminal, as well as four open-air parking lots.
To get from Innsbruck Airport to your destination, you can rent a car, take a taxi or a bus: A bus to the city center, as well as to the 'Hauptbahnhof' (main train terminal) stops in front of the passenger terminal every 15 minutes; the trip takes about 18 minutes.
From the main train terminal you find rail connections to ski resorts in Seefeld, St. Anton & Kitzbuehel, and from then on bus connections to resorts farther away.
