“Not only our highly appreciated winter sports guests come to visit us in winter, numerous people living in the EuRegio-region Salzburg/Bavaria are planning to go on a relaxing Mediterranean holiday. If you think of prolonging summer, you might want to go to the Canary Islands. Eurowings, the Lufthansa-subsidiary, offers weekly flights to Grand Canary, Fuerteventura and Tenerife. In addition to the Canary Islands, we also operate flights to Palma de Mallorca and Hurghada”, says Bettina Ganghofer, CEO of Salzburg Airport.
Beside a great number of marvelous beaches, the Canary Islands offer plenty of opportunities for an active vacation: hiking, mountain biking, golf as well as hotspots for divers. Fuerteventura, where winds are constant, is an absolute insider tip for kite- and windsurfers. However, you will find numerous attractions on all three islands for families with children as well as night owls.
If you prefer to go on a city trip, we would like to recommend the Dutch metropolises Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Eindhoven. While the Dutch Capital scores with numerous museums, the famous red-light district and its enchanting canals, Eindhoven is popular as a center of technology and design and Rotterdam, a port city with a modern urban landscape, offers a broad variety of shopping facilities.
Discover Russia? Board your flight at Salzburg Airport and go directly to Russia´s cosmopolitan capital Moscow! You will also find non-stop flights to St. Petersburg, the Latvian Metropolis Riga as well as Icelandic Reykjavik in our winter flight plan.
Scandinavia is not only a wonderful travel destination during summer – you will simply be mesmerized! Fascinating landscapes showing off fjords, volcanos and untouched forests attract thousands of visitors every year as well as the polar lights. In winter Norwegian and Scandinavian Airlines offer flights from Salzburg to Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and Gothenburg. In addition Finnair and Norwegian both operate to Helsinki.
London is one of the most popular destinations from Salzburg. British Airways offers flights to London Gatwick and London Heathrow in winter, which allows passengers to transfer to a great number of final destinations. But there is more to Great Britain than “just” London. We also operate flights to Dublin, Bristol, Birmingham, East Midlands, Liverpol, Leeds and brand-new: Belfast.
"In addition to a great number of non-stop flight connections from Salzburg, we also operate several long-distance flights via our big hubs. Lufthansa/Condor for instance operates flights to the Dominican Republic, South Africa or Thailand. Turkish Airlines offers flights to Istanbul all year with interesting long-haul-connections, for example to the Maldives or Hong Kong. A special highlight in our winter time schedule is the fact that we will fly to the new mega-airport in Istanbul directly from Salzburg from the beginning of next year. The national carrier Austrian Airlines operates services to New York and Tokio to just mention two of their long-distance-highlights.
