Salzburg Airport Guide

Salzburg airportofficially known as Salzburg Airport W.A. Mozart – is Austria’s second largest international airport.It is located approximately 4 kilometres south-west of Salzburg city centre near the border with Germany. Salzburg is the fourth largest city in Austria. The airport adopted the name of the city’s most famous son, classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, in 1996.

These days the airport consists of two passenger terminals accommodating 1.7 million passengers annually. The modern buildings have a compact but clear design which helps with passenger footfall. There are an excellent selection of bars, cafes and restaurants for a regional airport as well. The Hangar 7 area in Terminal 2 features many high-end restaurants and even has special guest chefs on rotation.

There are excellent low-cost flight options from Salzburg to the rest of Europe all-year. In the winter months the number of flights swells due to an influx of skiers and snowboarders exploring Austria’s nearby mountain ranges. Terminal 2 handles this seasonal increase in traffic and for the most part everything runs effortlessly. European airlines flying in to Salzburg airport include: EasyJet, Eurowings, Jet2 & Ryanair.

Salzburg airport is the gateway to many of Austria’s best ski resorts. The airport here is the second most important for wintersports in Europe after Geneva. There are close to 100 ski resorts within two hours drive to the south, east & west of the airport. For those travelling as part of a ski holiday there are fantastic resorts such as Kitzbuhel, Soll and Seefeld nearby. Most resorts have transfer times of less than one and a half hours. A dedicated junction on to the nearby highway also helps with onward travel times.
