Vienna Airport Information

Vienna International Airport (IATA: VIE), located in Schwechat and 18 km (11 mi) southeast of central Vienna, is the busiest and biggest airport in Austria. It is often referred to as Schwechat, the name of the nearby town. The airport is the hub of Austrian Airlines and its subsidiaries, as well as budget airline Niki.

Originally built as a military airport in 1938, it was taken over by the British in 1945. In 1954, the Betriebsgesellschaft was founded, and the airport replaced Aspern as Vienna's (and Austria's) principal airport. The airport received Olympic teams as Austria has twice hosted the Winter Olympics. Pope John Paul II also used the airport during his visits to Austria.

Presently, Vienna International Airport has three terminals: The main terminals 1 and 2 and a provisional terminal 1A, built to offer more space for low-cost carriers.
