The modernized Vienna Airport train station has been equipped with barrier-free access
Recently, ÖBB inaugurated the route from Vienna Central Train Station to Vienna Airport, operating an ÖBB railjet with its iconic red-white-red exterior. The scheduled time for this route – which includes the new 2.1 kilometre connecting route with the two highly noticeable network arched bridges – is 17 minutes. The train station at Vienna Airport was modernised, equipped with barrier-free access, and the platforms were extended to a length of 420 metres to make them suitable for long-distance trains.
11 ICE trains will be running between Wels, Linz, St. Pölten, Vienna Meidling, Vienna Central Train Station and Vienna Airport daily. In addition to this, four trains departing from Linz will be operating on the same route, so that a total of 15 trains will be operating between Linz and Vienna Airport at two-hour intervals. The travel time from the central train station in Linz to the terminals of the Vienna airport is one hour and 47 minutes. From the central train station in St. Pölten, the journey takes a mere 50 minutes. With this new direct connection, passengers on the Western line receive a pleasant, comfortable and stress-free mobility service for their journey to the airport and back home or to the office.
Passengers from Salzburg can also make use of this service: they can take the InterCity (IC) to St. Pölten and there make a (perfectly timed) transfer to the ICE to Vienna Airport. railjet passengers from Wiener Neustadt and Graz are offered a comfortable connection to the ICE running from Vienna Central Train Station to Vienna Airport every two hours.
