Flight cancellations and delays at Vienna Airport

Due to technical issues in transferring flight relevant data amongst EUROCONTROL and Austro Control (air traffic control) flights have to be delayed or cancelled at the moment.

Austrian Airlines had to delay and cancel a large number of flights on Sunday, August 28, 2016. Long-haul and charter flights are being prioritized. Austrian Airlines assumes that the problem will be solved today in the evening. Nevertheless, there may be an impact on tomorrow's air traffic. We advise all passengers to check the status of their flights on or before departure to the Vienna airport.

We ask our passengers to understand.

Passport checks on European flights

We would like to inform you that passport checks on European flights, also within the Schengen area, can occur. Therefore, delays during boarding and disembarkation are possible.
Passengers should carry a valid travel document, in particular on flights to Germany, France and Belgium. A travel document is a passport or, when traveling within the EU, a valid identity card - the driver's license is not a travel document!
Thank you for your support.

Before you leave for the airport, please check on our website whether your flight will depart on time: current departures and arrivals
