Austria - moving around the country
International air communication is well-developed in Austria. Many airports accept domestic flights, but they are less popular. The largest and most significant in Austria is the airport in Schwechat. It is 18 kilometers away from the capital and welcomes both standard and wide-body aircrafts. In 2006, a new terminal was opened, where exclusively VIP aircrafts and charter flights land. Since then, the airport in Schwechat has become one of the busiest in the whole country. The air harbor has shops and souvenir stalls, offices of international banks and currency exchange, cafes and restaurants of various classes, as well as baby care rooms and specially equipped facilities for disabled people.
