Vienna International VIE AIRPORT OVERVIEW

Vienna International Airport VIE is gateway not only to Vienna & other Austrian Cities, but also to five neighbouring countries (Poland, The Czech Republic, Slowakia, Hungary, and Slovenia). Skytrax handed Vienna Airport in 2015 & 2016 'Best Airport Staff in Europe' award, and in September 2015 considered it a '4-Star-Airport'.  The EMAS-price for environmental protection was received in May 2016. In May 2017 ACI declared it as 'Best Airport in Europe' in the 15-25M passenger range.

The Airport is located in the town of Schwechat, outside Austria's capital City Vienna, or about a 25 minute drive from city center. It is accessible via motorway A4 and freeway B9.  Note that the Airport access road parts between Arrivals(left) & Departures (right). Both the subway (S-Bahn) and the CAT train stations are located across from the Arrivals area.

With two long runways and 23.4M passengers in 2016, a host of airlines serve the airport with direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
