The airports operated by Vienna Airport Group – Vienna, Malta and Kosice – saw significant growth in passenger traffic in the year 2023.

Vienna International Airport and Malta International Airport will also be embarking on large-scale expansion projects this year.

In the year 2023, Vienna International Airport served 29.5 million passengers, an increase of 24.7% compared to 2022. This figure was 93.3% of pre-pandemic 2019 levels and the second highest in the airport’s history.

Much of the increase in traffic at Vienna Airport in 2023 was driven by local passengers, which saw a 28.2% increase to 22.8 million.
