Taxes and fees
The taxes, fees and surcharges to be charged depend on the chosen destination and the routing, since the airlines, countries and airports levy these in differing amounts. We will, of course, inform you of the exact amount when you book online or when you make your telephone booking.
The international/domestic surcharge varies depending on your destination and travel class. The exact amount will be shown in the flight booking in the Taxes, Fees and Surcharges section and is included in the total price of the flight.
Miles & More
At a flat rate of 15,000 award miles Miles & More offers you the option of paying with miles for the taxes, fees and surcharges for an award flight immediately at the time of booking or when the ticket is issued.
This offer applies on flights operated by Austrian Airlines and selected airline partners within Europe – even on connecting flights. You can choose the option both for an online booking and a booking made via your local Miles & More Service Team.
Should you forget or lose the boarding pass you printed out when checking in online, you can reprint the boarding pass by logging in again to online check in (also to mobile check-in). It is also possible to change the method of delivery (e.g. a mobile boarding pass instead of an online boarding pass). You can of course also get your boarding pass directly at the airport from one of the check-in machines.
Tickets for all Austrian Airlines flights are generally issued as electronic tickets. This electronic receipt is stored in a database and replaces paper tickets. Paper tickets are no longer sent to passengers. After you have completed your online booking you will receive your travel information via email. You can download your passenger receipt using the download link included in the email. You will be given your boarding pass when you present your booking or ticket number and your passport at the airport desk or check-in machine.

Ticket Service Charge (TSC)
The Austrian Airlines Ticket Service Charge (TSC) is levied for booking and ticket services at the ticket desk or when bookings are made by telephone. The level of this charge is due to the country where the journey starts.
Where bookings are made online in Austria via austrian.com, no Ticket Service Charge is levied. This may vary for other markets or points of sale however. Please note that the Ticket Service Charge is non-refundable.
