Vienna Austria Airport

Vienna Austria airport is one of the world’s busiest airports, used by most major airlines, including several budget airlines, such as Air Berlin and Air Baltic.

The airport has been divided into two terminals.

Of the two terminals, Terminal 1 contains, most notably, departure gates for ‘Austrian‘ — the national airline in Austria — and for its partner airlines (such as Emirates and Air Bulgaria).
