Air passenger transport

In commercial aviation (scheduled and non-scheduled transport), a total number of 9.3 million passengers (including transit) was transported at the six international Austrian airports in 2020. This means a decrease of 26.9 million passengers or 74.4% compared to the previous year. The number of flight movements amounted to 114 428 take-offs and landings and fell by 64.2% compared to 2019 (319 945 flight movements).

The decrease in passenger volume as a result of the Corona crisis affected all Austrian airports, but was different at the individual airports. With regard to the relative decreases in passenger volume compared to the previous year, the airports Innsbruck (-657 104 passengers or -57.4%) and Salzburg (-1 048 201 passengers or -61.0%) reported lower values. Both airports handle the majority of passengers in winter and benefited from the first months of the year that have not yet been affected by the Corona crisis. Vienna International Airport counted 7.8 million passengers in 2020, a decline by 23.8 million passengers or 75.3% compared to 2019. Large relative decreases in the number of passengers were registered at the airports of Klagenfurt (-160 039 passengers or -76.4%) Graz (-837 415 passengers or -80.8%) and Linz (-384 718 passengers or -88.2%).

Remark

Early results on flight movements and passengers are published on the website one month after the reporting month (please refer to our German website).

Detailed results regarding commercial aviation can be found four months after the reference month in the statistical database STATcube.
