Self service check-in kiosk
Avoid unnecessary waiting and use our self service kiosks to check in and print your boarding pass. All you need is your 6-character booking reference or any form of identification (e.g. credit/debit card or passport). The kiosks offer flexibility with rebookings and waitlists. You may select adjacent seats for up to 3 passengers travelling together.

Travelling with hand baggage only:
After receiving your boarding pass at the check-in kiosk you may walk straight through security.

Travelling with luggage:
Once you have picked out your boarding pass at the kiosk you may simply hand in your baggage at our designated "Baggage Drop off" counters.

In these cases you might have to check in at the check-in counter:

  • If you are travelling in a group of more than 9 people
  • If your child is travelling alone

Self Baggage Drop-off
When things do not run fast enough at the airport: Just do it yourself!
The new Austrian Self Baggage Drop-off at Vienna Airport makes it possible.

Take advantage of our new baggage machines at Vienna Airport. In this way you may save valuable time, for example to relax in an Austrian lounge. The new counters 351-354 in Terminal 3 are equipped with modern Self Baggage Drop-off devices. For the use of the new baggage machines you need a valid boarding pass for the day of departure with an OS flight number on an Austrian operated flight.   With your mobile or printed boarding card, you can check-in your luggage in just 6 steps and walk straight to your departure gate.

  1. Put your luggage on the conveyer belt.
  2. Scan your boarding pass with the hand scanner next to the screen.
  3. Take the luggage tag from the device.
  4. Attach the tag on your luggage as displayed on the screen.
  5. Take your luggage receipt.
  6. Keep your receipt until arriving at your final destination.
