AIRail Expansion between Salzburg Central Railway Station and Vienna Airport

As of September 1, 2017, Austrian Airlines and the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) are expanding their cooperation program entitled “AIRail” on the route between Salzburg Central Railway Station and Vienna Airport to complement the successfully established railway connection between Linz Central Railway Station and Vienna Airport. In combination with a previous or subsequent Austrian Airlines flight, Austrian Airlines passengers will be able to take advantage of three daily Railjet connections of the ÖBB with an Austrian Airlines flight number between Salzburg Central Railway Station and Vienna Airport. Travel time between Salzburg Central Railway Station and Vienna Airport amounts to 2 hours 49 minutes. The existing Austrian Airlines flight offering of six daily flights on the Salzburg-Vienna route remains unchanged, and will be complemented by the three AIRail connections.

 

“The innovative intermodal transport concept i.e. the combination of railway and flight connections with our partner, the ÖBB, is very well received by our customers. Thanks to AIRail, the Linz-Vienna route has become our most successful connection within Austria. Due to the new AIRail connection between Salzburg and Vienna, we can fill the time gap in our daily offering“, explains Andreas Otto, CCO of Austrian Airlines.

 

Valerie Hackl, Member of the Management Board of ÖBB-Personenverkehr AG, emphasizes the importance of changed mobility needs. “Customers are demanding new solutions and the combination of different means of transport is one of them. On the basis of the expanded cooperation with Austrian Airlines, we are able to create an extended offering of networked mobility, thus enabling us to attract new passengers for the railway”, Hackl states.
