Austrian AIRail - Travel directly from Linz when flying from Vienna Airport
Since 14th December 2014 passengers travelling to or from Linz enjoy direct, fast and comfortable rail connections to Vienna Airport. From 13 December 2015 onwards, the AIRail offering will be significantly enhanced, making it much more attractive. Every hour, you can board a railjet in Linz and travel to Vienna Airport in as little as 1 hour and 43 minutes. Using www.austrian.com or a travel agency, it is possible to book the rail journey from Linz to Vienna together with a connecting flight as an AIRail connection, enabling passengers travelling to or from Linz to access all the destinations in the Austrian Airlines global route network with one ticket valid for both the rail and air legs of their journey.
AIRail offers much more than just quick and easy booking, however. AIRail customers are offered the option of checking in for their flight at Linz Hauptbahnhof using a self-service terminal at the station’s Travel Centre. Business Class and AUA Miles & More Status customers are able to use the ÖBB Lounge at Linz Hauptbahnhof, with assistance available on request at Passenger Check-in. The boarding pass functions as a ticket for the entire journey booked, including the sections by rail and by air. Passengers remain in charge of their luggage until they reach the airport.
AIRail passengers are allocated their own reserved seats on the train, and supported by ÖBB staff during the rail leg of the journey. Passengers are responsible for taking care of their luggage until they reach Vienna Airport, with service staff present on the platforms at both ends of the journey to help them unload and load their luggage when boarding and disembarking from the train. All AIRail passengers receive a voucher for the ICE on-board restaurant, should they wish to enjoy some light refreshments during their journey to or from the airport.
