Salzburg Airport - SZG

Salzburg Airport

The airport has outstanding scheduled flights to the larger European cities and excellent connections to the hubs in Frankfurt, Vienna, London, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Istanbul. The strong low-cost network and regular chartered flights to many holiday destinations on the Mediterranean in the summer and to Northern Europe in winter make the airport an important factor for tourism throughout the region. Direct flights to Salzburg are available, e.g. from Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Cologne-Bonn, Frankfurt, Vienna, Istanbul and London. (as of April 2018) Salzburg Airport has two terminals and profits from its compact and clear design. The amadeus terminal 2 was designed to accommodate the higher number of charter flights on Saturdays during winter. During the rest of the year it is used for events.
