Flughafen Wien AG begins maintenance work in Terminal 2
Maintenance work will be carried out in Terminal 2 at Vienna International Airport from 20 September 2010 presumably to the end of August 2011. There will be slight changes for passengers during this period, but operations in the area will generally proceed without limitation. Terminal 1, which houses the AUA check-in counters, and the shopping arcade as well as the entire arrivals area will not be affected by this work.
At the end of September 2010 a suspended ceiling will be installed in the western section of Terminal 2 (beginning at the boarding card control area / intersection with Terminal 1 up to the staircase leading to the Marketplace Restaurant), so work can be carried out without limiting passenger flows. This work will be relocated to the eastern section of Terminal 2 (staircase leading to the Marketplace Restaurant up to the connection with Skylink) in early February 2011.
Flughafen Wien AG will undertake all efforts to minimise the effects on passengers and to make the travel experience as pleasant as possible. The construction will be separated from passenger flows by full sight and dust protection measures, and work on the suspended ceiling will not be visible to passengers. Travellers will be able to reach the check-in counters (4-43) at all times, and the passenger orientation system will be adjusted to reflect construction.
This maintenance project is focused primarily on the re-insulation of the roof to improve energy efficiency and to also work on the the roof structure. In addition, preparatory work will also be carried out to allow for a direct link to the terminal expansion VIE-Skylink when operations start.
