FWAG (group) facts & figures

Flughafen Wien AG is one of the few airports in Europe quoted on the stock exchange. As a developer, builder and operator of Vienna Airport it offers the full range of associated services:

  • airport operations
  • ground operations
  • security services
  • infrastructure provider
  • commercial activities

Thanks to its geographical position in the centre of Europe, it is one of the most important hubs for the growing number of destinations in central and eastern Europe.

For the first time in its history, Vienna Airport handled more than 31 million passengers in 2019. It counted 31,662,189 passengers, up 17.1% on the previous year. In particular, long-haul routes had a positive impact on the airport’s performance, as well as new flight connections and frequency increases on the part of the airlines. This development was cut short with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the pandemic slowly fading away, passenger numbers are improving again.
