The five VIP salons shine forth in a new light, completely designed in the “Golden Heritage” style, with noble wood elements on the walls, superior flooring and comfortable, upholstered furniture. The opening ceremony took place on February 26, 2019 in the presence of Günther Ofner and Julian Jäger, Members of the Management Board of Flughafen Wien AG as well as Michael Zach and Joubin Pour, Managing Directors of Vienna Aircraft Handling. Domestic celebrities from business and culture were among the numerous guests.
“High quality and first-class service for our passengers comprises is the absolute priority at Vienna Airport. We are committed to make our services of the highest quality, such as the VIP Service, accessible to everyone”, said Julian Jäger and Günther Ofner, Members of the Management Board of the airport operating company Flughafen Wien AG, on the occasion of the opening of the newly designed VIP Salons.
A sense of well-being like a VIP
Whether they are used as a living room or modern conference room, the new VIP Salons prove their multifunctionality even when comfortably testing the seating. “Our travellers can now expect even more comfort in the exclusive atmosphere to which they are accustomed. Each person who books our VIP Service should feel comfortable and at ease, regardless of whether he is taking a scheduled flight or his own private jet”, state Michael Zach and Joubin Pour, the two Managing Directors of Vienna Aircraft Handling (VAH). For this reason, we intentionally paid attention in designing the salons to fusing Viennese charm and international flair, so that every guest feels at home. It was also important to us to ensure that the entire value chain, from design to production, was ‘Made in Austria’”, the two VAH managing directors add.
New accents: fishbone parquet flooring and library
On balance, three large and two small VIP salons were newly designed in the past months. Each room has its own character. For example, one room has a piece of furniture similar to a double bass. The floors are made of noble fishbone parquet flooring or marble-like tiles. The walls are adorned with wood elements alternating with playful wallpaper patterns reminiscent of Viennese Art Niveau. Modern works of art serve as eye-catchers and lend a special something to the VIP Salons. The furniture with its green and beige tones is not only state-of-the-art but also comfortable. A small library replete with a diverse range of works is new to the VIP terminal and is available to all travellers. Following the high-quality expansion of the VIP vehicle fleet, the opening of the VIP Salons marks the completion of the project “Realignment of VIP Services”.
Travel like a state visitor – open to everyone
The VIP Service in an exclusive ambience targets everyone who would like to treat themselves to something special, regardless of the airline they fly with or the booking class. The trained employees at the VIP Terminal will take care of all formalities, from check-in to passport control and customs as well as personal transport to the aircraft. In the meantime, the travellers relax in the VIP Salons, where they allow themselves to be spoiled with culinary delicacies.
