Vienna International Airport / Wien Schwechat

Vienna International Airport (ICAO: LOWW, IATA: VIE) is located ca. 18 km (11 miles) south-east of the Austrian capital near to the town of Schwechat, after which the airport is named.

The airport is the home base of the flag-carrier Austrian and the budget airline Niki .

Most European airlines and a significant number of international airlines have direct connections to Vienna from their respective hubs. It is noteable that only Austrian Airlines fly to the Americas (New York, Toronto, Washington and Punta Cana) and AirTransat seasonally from Canada, there is no service to Northern England, Africa (aside from Egypt, Libiya and Tunisia) making alternative airports more attractive from these origins.

Airport transfer
There are numerous companies offering airport transportation just past customs. There are two very small monitors displaying all the next trains and the buses departing, to the right and left respecitvly at the back of the space where people recieve travellers. By preference:

* S-Bahn (regular train), (underneath terminal). 5:00-24:00. The normal S-Bahn (commuter railway) S7 (and less-frequent S2 and RSB7) go to Wien-Mitte, as well as stopping at useful hub stations including direct connection to every U-Bahn (subway) line in the city and numerous trams and trains. It takes 18 to 27 minutes to reach Wien-Mitte; these are the cheapest and nearly the fastest option. Take any train headed towards 'Florisdorf' or 'Südbahnhof (Ost)'. For 'Südbahnhof' or 'Meidling' transfer at 'Rennweg' to any other train line in the opposite direction (S7 trains make 50 minute loop before arriving in Südbahnhof). One level below arrivals. Follow signs, separate platform near the CAT. You need a Vienna Zone 100 ticket (€1.80 and including all connecting transit in Vienna, day/week/etc. passes are also valid) + one extra 'VOR' zone ("Außenzone" €1.80) since the airport is legally outside of the city. Technically tickets have to be purchased and validated before boarding but conductors usually sell and stamp tickets on the airport line--instead of issuing a fine which they normally do on any other line. ÖBB (red) ticket machines are on the way and on the platform itself. €3.60 each way.

* Vienna AirportLines Bus, (outside arrivals). 5:00-24:00. Direct buses drive frequently between Vienna International Airport and assorted points in Vienna. Operated by Postbus, tickets can be purchased with cash from the operator. All routes: One way €6, Round-trip €11.
o Morzinplatz/Schwedenplatz line goes to the city center (District 1). Buses every 30 minutes, the trip takes 20 minutes. At Schwedenplatz there is a connection to the underground lines U1 and U4 as well as buses and trams. St. Stephans Cathedral (the very center of Vienna) is a five-minute walk away.
o Meidling/Westbahnhof line is the railway connector, departing every 20-30 minutes and stopping at Meidling Railway Station(30 min.) and Westbahnhof/West Railway Station(45 min.).
o Kaisermühlen VIC/Kagran line goes to Vienna International Center/the UN and serves hotels in the eastern part of Vienna. Runs hourly and takes 20-45 min. depending upon destination.

* City Airport Train (CAT), (underneath terminal). Over-advertised, non-stop to Wien-Mitte Station (Landstraße) in 16 minutes. Departs at :05 and :35 past the every hour. The return departs Wien-Mitte at :08 and :38 past the hour. The CAT is only useful if it is the next train departing (otherwise take the S-Bahn, as it runs the same route) and you are heading to Wien-Mitte area (otherwise consider a more direct train or bus). Star Alliance and Air Berlin/Niki offer check-in (including baggage) at Wien-Mitte (Landstraße) Station. Alternatively, consider luggage lockers and the regular train. City check-in may be denied from 90 minutes before departure. One way €10, return trip €18.

* Shuttle provided by hotel. Select Vienna hotels offer guests shuttle service to and from the airport, usually for a fee that's cheaper than a taxi, though sometimes you will share the shuttle with guests from your own or nearby hotels.

* Taxi. Cab fare is not set, so agree before getting in; to anywhere for €25-€30. If you don't care to negotiate or your destination is at the northern or western edge of the city a pre-booked flat-rate transfer is likely cheaper and easier. There are several offices at arrivals. Airport Service Wien (43 676 351 64 20; call Mon-Fri 8am-6pm; taxi works 5:45am-9:30pm) [12] €27 (max. 3 people) to/from any destination address within Vienna, Rosenov Airport Transfers +43-1-485 77 77 , Mo-Fr 9am-6pm offers flat-rate to Vienna for €29.
