The expansion will add 70,000 square meters of space, accommodating shopping and dining outlets, leisure areas, lounges, 18 new bus gates and a new security checkpoint.

Julian Jäger, Member of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG said:

Our airport is growing, passenger volume is increasing, and we are continuously among the best globally in terms of our service quality. Now we are also upgrading our terminal infrastructure to be top-notch internationally! Thanks to the new Southern Expansion project, we are laying the groundwork for Vienna Airport to join the ranks of the top airports and achieve Skytrax 5-star status.

Throughout the expansion project, VIE will incorporate sustainable building practices. It will also implement state-of-the-art technologies for energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.

This includes optimised thermal insulation, a highly insulating façade, and efficient ventilation systems.

Johanna Mikl-Leitner, Governor of Lower Austria said:

Vienna International Airport is on a growth path. With this project, it is taking important steps to ensure the future development of the airport hub and the entire region. The airport is not only a crucial transport hub for Austria but also the largest employer in the Eastern Region and an essential flagship company for the entire federal state of Lower Austria. Thanks to investments in its terminal infrastructure, Vienna International Airport in Schwechat is strengthening its role as the gateway to the world for the Lower Austrian business, tourism and cultural landscape.
