In this article, you will learn about the check-in options you have at the airport in Vienna and how to check in your flight correctly.

Step-by-step check-in at Vienna Airport

You can opt for either classic check-in at the counter or self-check-in at the kiosk.

Check-in at the counter of Vienna Airport

  1. The first thing you need to do is go to the right counter. Each airline usually has several of its own check-in counters at the airport. This means that when you arrive at the airport, you must first look for your airline’s check-in counter.
  2. Once you have arrived at the correct counter, check-in will be carried out by an airline employee. For check-in, the employee needs your flight ticket, a passport or identity card and, depending on the case, entry or Corona documents.
  3. You can then place your checked baggage on the treadmill – if you have one. In this case, the piece of luggage is weighed. If you exceed the maximum permitted weight, you will usually have to pay an additional payment for the excess weight.
  4. At check-in, you will receive your boarding pass as well as the ” ticket” for your checked baggage. Now you can go to the security checkpoint.
