Time to check in

When you arrive at Linz Airport, we recommend having a look at the display board with all the important information about flights: Is your plane arriving on time? Which gate do you need to go to? At which counter can you check in? The next step is: checking in your luggage at the check-in counter. Please keep in mind the current regulations and restrictions for outsize and special luggage!

Would you like to stretch your legs in the departure hall or go through security right away? The choice is yours – and of course, depends on how much time you have left before departure …

On a tour of exploration

.... at Linz Airport

You have some time to explore Linz Airport before your plane leaves? Then how about going on a culinary journey at the Café "Frederick & Sons" in the departure hall? You might also want to stop by at the adjoining airport shop. Another option to see the area around Linz Airport from high above – other than from the plane? The observation deck boasts stunning views of the aircraft starting and landing at the airport – and there’s a children’s play area as well. Speaking of aviation: If you would like to watch the planes take off and land from an entirely new perspective, we recommend visiting our spotter holes.

The transit area

Services after you’ve gone through security

You’ve already gone through security, but you don’t want to head to your gate right away? How about a visit to the duty-free shop? And if you’d prefer a cup of coffee and a bite to eat, you might want to stop by at Up & Away transit café right connected to the shop.

By the way: Almost all tables have sockets where you can plug in your laptop or mobile phone. That’s how you can relax and unwind as you wait for your flight and get to charge your devices at the same time.

If you’re travelling with children, you should visit the play corner in the transit zone. Tip: Let your kids romp about for a while before your departure. That’s how they can let off some steam and be calmer and more relaxed on the plane.
