The new journey time measurements enable travelers to calculate their travel time to the airport, and to plan an alternative route in case of traffic jams. In cooperation with the radio station Hitradio Ö3, the Federal Province of Lower Austria, and the national road network operating company ASFINAG, Vienna Airport now offers precise information on travelling to and from the airport on the A4 Eastern Motorway and the B9 country road. This information can be accessed online at www.viennaairport.com, www.asfinag.at, by looking at the traffic information signs on the airport premises and along the A4 highway or by listening to the Ö3 traffic information service.
Special cameras have been installed along the A4 Eastern Motorway and the B9 country road which register the license plates of vehicles at specified points and are thus capable of calculating the precise time required to drive between these two points. In this way, up-to-date travel times are shown for the section of the A4 highway between the Prater traffic junction and Vienna Airport, the Schwechat interchange and Vienna Airport (in both directions in each case) and on the B9 road between Schwechat Ost and Vienna Airport, between Bruck/Leitha and Vienna Airport (via the B10/B60 roads) and Hainburg/Danube Bridge and Vienna Airport.
