Vienna’s airport opens Check-in 1

Check-in 1 is set to open at Vienna’s Schwechat international airport mid-January.

Work to remodernise the terminal has taken about six months. New check-in desks have been installed and the traffic through the terminal will now involve low-cost flights such as Berlin Air and Niki rather than Austrian Airlines.

A new terminal, Austrian Star Alliance, was opened in June 2012 to handle the Austrian Airlines and Star Alliance traffic. The expansion allows the airport up to 30 million passengers a year.

A new runway is planned for 2020 and the airport railway station is also being remodernised to improve connections with long-distance trains and the city’s central railway station.

Schwechat international airport handled about 21 million passengers in 2011
