AUGUST 2021 TRAFFIC RESULTS: 2.2 MILLION PASSENGERS HANDLED BY THE FLUGHAFEN WIEN GROUP IN AUGUST 2021, ITS STRONGEST MONTH IN SUMMER FOR TRAVELLING - 1.8 MILLION PASSENGERS AT VIENNA AIRPORT

More than double the number of passengers compared to August 2020, but still a 45.3% drop from the pre-crisis level of August 2019
 
The Flughafen Wien Group recorded the highest passenger volume in August 2021 since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. The total number of passengers handled by the Flughafen Wien Group (Vienna Airport, Malta Airport and Kosice Airport) in August 2021 showed a substantial decline of 45.3% compared to the pre-crisis level of August 2019. However, the total of 2,223,735 passengers is more than double the figure for August 2020. Vienna Airport reported 1,778,054 travellers in August 2021, also more than twice the passenger volume of August 2020 but still 43.6% below the pre-crisis level of August 2019. The traffic results at Vienna Airport are in line with expectations. The outlook for the entire year 2021 remains unchanged: about 10 million travellers at Vienna Airport and 12-13 million in the Flughafen Wien Group. At present Vienna Airport offers direct flight service to 162 destinations. In any case, this equals about 75% of the pre-crisis offering.
