Successful Start for Vienna's Skylink

Vienna’s Skylink terminal extension opened for business on June 5 with the airport’s press team reporting: “all systems are basically functioning as planned.”  It added that Vienna’s morning peak hour had been the Skylink’s first real test, as 116 flights with approximately 10,000 passengers were handled by 10am, and a total of 440 flights with almost 37,000 travellers accommodated during the first day.
The airport said that after a trial phase, “when interim adjustments can be made,” the official opening of the new terminal will take place [as this edition went to press] on June 21, 2012.  It adds that: “modifications will, of course, also be made after that time to continuously improve functionality and convenience.”
