Full description

Book a ticket for the train journey from Vienna Airport to the city center with the City Airport Train. Upon arrival at Vienna Airport, follow the green CAT signs to the platform of the GAT-City Airport Train. With the modern double-decker trains, you can reach the Wien Mitte-Landstraße station in just 16 minutes, with a direct connection to the Vienna subway. The CAT station Wien-Mitte is at the centrally located underground station Landstraße (U3/04). Vienna's city center and many hotels can be easily reached on foot from here.

During the short journey on the City Airport Train, you can sit back and relax. The jet ambiance and the comfortable seats in the double-decker carriages of the City Airport Train ensure relaxation. With the equally interesting and entertaining program that the information screens offer you, the short transfer time will fly by. On the day of your departure, the CAT City Check-In gives you the opportunity to check in your luggage in Wien-Mitte and spend the rest of the time in the city without carrying any suitcase around. In the CAT foyer, you will find 30 lockers for the safe storage of your hand luggage. City Check-In is offered by selected airlines.

The City Air Terminal in the city center offers you all the services of an international airport terminal. Baggage can be checked in at the self-service check-in machines where you will receive your boarding pass. Once at the airport, you can go directly to the gate. The City Check-In is a service specifically for CAT customers and can only be used upon the presentation of a valid CAT ticket.

    I am very happy I booked round-trip transfer in advance. No queuing near ticket machines - going straight to CAT train. CAT is easy to find - you just need to follow green arrows upon arrival and few minutes later you are in the train. From Wien Mitte you can catch any train/metro/bus you need. Train itself is very modern, seats comfortable. Trip to/from Vienna airport takes approx. 16min.

    Easy to catch the train, fastest way to get to the airport. And if you plan to use Austria or Russia airlines, you can check-in at the CAT kiosk! It saves a lot of time! But there's a little problem with the ticket. When I presented my e-ticket of PDF file format, the staff said "Nexttime, you need to print it out."

    Een hele gemakkelijke manier om van de luchthaven naar het centrum van Wenen te reizen. Het staat duidelijk aangegeven waar je naartoe moet. Kaarten kun je thuis al online bestellen, maar op de luchthaven is er voldoende mogelijkheid voor. In slechts 16 minuten sta je in het centrum.
