Salzburg Airport

Mozart Airport, is an important Austrian international airport, located just 3 km southwest of the center of Salzburg. It is named after the famous composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The airport is one of the reference points for skiers, as it serves the vast Ski Amadé region, the second largest ski area in Europe.

Mozart airport consists of two terminals. T2 is the smallest, used exclusively during the seasonal period. T1, on the other hand, is the main terminal. There are numerous shopping areas, bars and restaurants. There is a duty-free and a terrace for visitors. The wifi line is available for FREE in almost all areas of the building.

Thanks to the rather short distance from the airport, it is possible to reach the center by public transport in less than 20 minutes. You can choose between city buses and trains, or, alternatively, the more expensive private taxis and shuttles.

Trolleybuses (o-buses) 2 and 10, in our opinion, are very comfortable and efficient. They all leave and arrive from the airport. The trolleybus n.10 for Salzburg-Sam, connects the center in just 15 minutes, with a frequency of 10′; trolleybus 2 connects Salzburg Airport and Central Railway Station in 20 minutes, with frequencies from 10 (weekdays) to 20′ (Sundays and holidays); finally, bus 27 with route via Wals/Viehhausen to the railway station, takes you to the center in about 35 minutes.

The ticket costs €2.50 per adult and €1.30 reduced for children up to 15 years. Tickets can be purchased inside the terminal, outside in the automatic machines. Tickets can also be purchased on the bus with a surcharge.
