Top ranking for Vienna Airport: VIENNA Lounge voted “Global Lounge of the Year” at the Excellence Awards 2024 by Priority Pass
The outstanding VIENNA Lounge makes the advantages of Vienna as a travel destination perceptible and palpable. Thanks to the impressive combination of Viennese elegance, Austrian art and cuisine, the panorama view of the airport apron and a terrace open all year round, the VIENNA Lounge creates an exclusive personal retreat and place of refuge for travellers. Priority Pass users particularly appreciate this offering and selected the VIENNA Lounge as “Global Lounge of the Year” at its Excellence Awards 2024 among more than 1,500 international locations at over 700 airports in 145 countries worldwide. Priority Pass is the world’s original and market-leading airport experiences programme. The brand is owned and operated by Collinson, which will present the award at an industry event to be held at Vienna Airport in the middle of April.
  • The VIENNA Lounge makes Viennese elegance, Austrian art and cuisine perceptible and palpable, putting it in the premier league of airport lounges. We are very pleased that the members of the Priority Pass rated the VIENNA Lounge as the very best within the context of the Excellence Awards. This is a great endorsement for our entire team. Our sincere thanks go to all the lounge employees at the airport as well as our partners DoN group and Leopold Museum, due to their great commitment we can celebrate this success,” says Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport.
“We have a shared ethos with our partners to deliver the best airport experience to our members and the winners of this year’s Priority Pass Excellence Awards have proven that they truly elevate every customer journey into something special. We had an unprecedented year at Collinson in 2023, which wouldn’t have been possible without our exceptional network of partners. So today we celebrate and honour those that are leading the field, offering first class services and solutions,” says Christopher Evans, CEO of Collinson International.  
Excellence Awards 2024 of Priority Pass: VIENNA Lounge comes out on top
Members of the Priority Pass selected the VIENNA Lounge at Vienna Airport as “Global Lounge of the Year” at the Excellence Awards 2024. The assessment of the worldwide Priority Pass network is based on the feedback and reviews from 379,966 members and is carried out in line with a variety of criteria, including the quality of the facilities, customer service, selected food and beverages and overall satisfaction. The VIENNA Lounge prevailed over 1,500 airport lounges at over 700 airports in 145 countries around the globe.
VIENNA Lounge: Exclusive atmosphere, Viennese elegance, Austrian art and cuisine
Spanning an area of about 2,400 m², the VIENNA Lounge leaves nothing to be desired. Elegant interior decoration with design elements from the “Vienna School”, comfortable and high-quality furnishings and a panorama view of the airport apron create a bright and pleasant atmosphere. Possibilities to take showers, relaxation rooms and even a separate large meeting room looking out upon the airport apron offer useful services to travellers. The culinary concept is provided by the DoN group, Austria's largest privately run "Tailored taste" catering company with an international focus. What is particularly impressive is the fact that the entire lounge is decorated with high quality art prints of well-known works of art by significant local artists such as Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and many others as a result of the airport’s collaboration with the Leopold Museum in Vienna. Travellers who spend time in the VIENNA Lounge will feel as if they are experiencing Vienna from its most picturesque side.

Leopold Museum curates selected art prints for the VIENNA lounge

High-quality reproductions show selected paintings and prints by Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele and Koloman Moser as well as historical posters by exponents of the Vienna Secession from the Leopold Museum's collection. Among the works on display in the VIENNA Lounge are Egon Schiele's famous self-portraits and his unique depictions of women, most notably the portrait Wally Neuzil, as well as Gustav Klimt's major work Death and Life.
