Salzburg is the city of Mozart, and his classical compositions float from the speakers of Salzburg Airport. Located just three kilometres from the centre of the city, this is Austria's second largest airport and an easy way into the world of Mozart. The airport also acts as a gateway to the ski resorts around Salzburg, and there are various seasonal routes operated throughout winter.
Also known as Salzburg W.A. Mozart Airport, the facility is predominantly used by low-cost carriers such as Easyjet, Jet2 and Niki. Most flights depart and arrive at the larger Terminal 1, with boarding gates separated for Schengen and non-Schengen destinations. Terminal 2 is mostly used to enhance the airport's capacity for seasonal charters. ATMs can be found immediately after the luggage carousel while a collection of shops and cafes are located before and after check-in.
From Salzburg Airport multiple bus lines travel the short distance into the city centre. The journey takes less than 20 minutes and connects the airport with other parts of Salzburg's public transportation system.
Planes have been taking off from Salzburg Airport since 1910. By 1927 there was an established route between Austria's three major cities, followed by a Lufthansa route that connected the city to Berlin and Venice.
