Linz Airport

Linz Airport (German: Flughafen Linz, IATA: LNZ, ICAO: LOWL) is a primary international airport located near Linz, the third-largest city in Austria. In some contexts, the operator calls the airport the blue danube airport linz. Linz Airport is relatively small, with 11 gates. There is a shop and café in the entrance hall, connected to the check-in and airline desks. The airport restaurant can accommodate up to 450 people. On Sundays guest can book a special champagne brunch and on Friday the restaurant offers an Italian themed evening. In addition, the event “Dinner & Crime” takes regularly place at the restaurant. It is a typical Murder mystery game, which is held all over Austria, where the guests can participate and help to solve the murder case alongside professional actors. The Sky Gourmet Restaurant is the only venue for the event in Upper Austria. Beyond the security checks there is a duty-free shop and a small café accessible from both the domestic and international gate areas.

The airport also has a roof terrace, which can be visited during the summer months between 6 and 23 o’clock to observe the airplanes. For guests of the airport the access is free of charge. The rooftop also has a playground for children. For so called plane spotters special viewing spots were created, where visiters are able to take pictures of the planes from a wide range of angles without having to worry about any annoying obstacles.The airport is equipped with a 3000 meter long precision runway with two instrumental landing systems, as well as a helicopter landing pad. For medium-haul aircraft 16 parking positions are available. Linz Airport is actually a military airport but with a civil right of use. The civil part is located north of the landing strip. To the south lie the second largest barracks of Austria as well as a military airfield named “Fliegerhorst Vogler”. On 1 November 2010, both runway 09/27 and helicopter landing pad 07/25 were renamed to runway 08/26 and helicopter landing pad 07/25 due to permanent changes in the magnetic declination. Since the submitted variation of the compass rose results in such a magnetic value which lies closer to 08/26 than the existing identification code 09/27, the Austrian flight control Austro Control initiated the tracking of the new runway designation.

The Cargo sector of the airport operates worldwide under the brand Air Cargo Center. In 2017 there was a significant cargo increase with a total of 53,796 tons of cargo. Thus the airport could strengthen its leading position as Austria’s largest regional airport for cargo services and further increase cargo services by more than 20% compared to last year. Besides the daily rotation of DHL Aviation (Ljubljana – Linz – Leipzig) extra cargo transactions are often handled. The first cargo terminal was completed in 1994. A year later the new extensions was already in progress and opened finale in 1996. In 2000 followed the opening of the third cargo terminal. In June 2014 DHL Global Forwarding transported 9.5 tons of steel tiling from Linz to Mumbai by a Boeing 747-400F. Following the ongoing expansion of the cargo facilities and the opening of cargo terminal 5 on 17 October 2013, a building the size of 70×35 meters, a 2.900 m² cargo hall, 12 loading bays as well as two sawtooth ramps were created. Linz Airport is also equipped to dispatch jumbo jets. Following the legal authorization in August 2017, DHL Express is in the process of setting up a new logistics center at the airport. More than 25 million euros are invested in its construction. The merger aims to establish quality advantages and ensure increased safety standards.

The General Aviation Center is housed in a separate terminal and coordinates among others the following points: Passport and customs checks, refueling, cleaning, defrosting as well as several other passenger and crew services.

The airline pilot school AeronautX Luftfahrtschule is also located in the airport.
