DECEMBER 16, 2009, marked the opening of the newly designed Air Lounge at Vienna International Airport. Divided into various seating areas, a separate business corner allows visitors to carry on their work undisturbed, while in another room a relaxation zone provides space to unwind. The Air Lounge is located directly behind the passport control counters in the Pier East and gives visitors an unrestricted view of the apron.
A self-service bar provides a breakfast or lunch buffet that is changed to match the time of day. Austrian and foreign newspapers, magazines, television and three free Internet stations provide a pleasant stay until departure. The Air Lounge is open for passengers from 06:00 to 20:00.
In addition to the Air Lounge, Vienna International Airport also operates the Jet Lounge in the Plaza near the boarding card controls. All airline passengers can use these two lounges. Those holding a frequent flyer card or business class ticket gain automatic entry while those who do not simply pay €24 (US$33) entry fee. Travel agencies can also book these lounges for their customers. Additional information can be found at: www.viennaairport.com
The two lounges at Vienna International Airport are currently visited by approximately 20,000 passengers per month.
