“People want to travel and there is plenty of opportunity at Vienna Airport to do so: 190
destinations, new airlines and long-haul is picking up again. In the summer months, the seating capacities offered will equal about 90% of the pre-crisis level. High quality service is also a top priority this summer. We want to continue to be among the best when it comes to the most punctual flight hubs in Europe. For this reason, we are hiring 350 additional employees for passenger-related services. In 2022 we were the third most punctual and in January even the second-best hub in Europe. We would like to defend this position in the future as well,” states Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport.
