The Airport City at Vienna Airport continues to grow. The logistics services provider Kühne + Nagel has relocated its company headquarters for Austria to the airport. Some 120 employees will occupy office space of about 1,900 m². The underlying reason for the decision was the proximity to the logistics facilities of the airport and the good infrastructure of the Airport City.
Due to its modern infrastructure, close proximity to Vienna and other transport connections to the neighboring countries of Eastern Europe, the new business location at Vienna Airport is the optimal place to further expand our activities, says Franz Braunsberger, Managing Director of Kühne + Nagels Austrian subsidiary.
With the addition of Kühne + Nagel, the Airport City has found a new business location partner, which is a further success for the airport as an economic driver and job creator. Companies profit from an attractive real estate offering with numerous useful services at one of the biggest traffic hubs in the region. This has already attracted considerable interest in the industry, as demonstrated by the latest business location project, states Günther Ofner, Member of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG.
Kühne + Nagel was previously represented in the forwarding agents building at the airport in order to process its freight orders. Now the entire company headquarters is moving to the airport premises. On balance, about 120 employees will work on three floors, occupying some 1,900 m² of office space. Accordingly, Vienna Airport has added one more business location partner, strengthening its role as a flagship company for the entire region.
Real estate development as an important part of the airport strategy
A key aspect of the business strategy of Vienna Airport is to develop the real estate site into a multifunctional airport city. Vienna Airport offers the optimal pre-requisites for business locations, featuring commercial space of more than 140,000 m², office park facilities with about 84,000 m² of office and conferencing space, various local amenities and services such as supermarkets, a pharmacy, a fitness studio and much more as well as optimal traffic connections. Anyone potentially interested in the site can find more information at www.airport-city.at.
