As a frequent traveller to Vienna I always watch out for good deals to go back to my hometown.

Alternatively to booking flights to Vienna International Airport you can get cheap flights to Bratislava Milan Rastislav Stefanik airport, which is only 64 km from Vienna. The airport serves flights from Paris, London, Barcelona, Milan, Dublin, Edinburgh and other cities.
The Austrian Postbus, in co-operation with Slovak Lines Express, offers a shuttle service from Bratislava airport to Vienna, which takes two hours.
You can also take a taxi from Bratislava airport to Vienna. The ride takes about 45 minutes and costs between EUR 70 to EUR 80 for up to four people (Auto VKM Bratislava).
If you have a layover in Vienna, even as short as three hours, it is worth visiting the city. Vienna International Airport is just 12 kilometres from Vienna. You can take the City Airport Train, which operates at intervals of around 30 min, to Wien Mitte, which is a 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Go to Vienna Walks for some suggestions on self guided walks.
If you want to get the most out of your time in Vienna, there is a special guided Vienna Layover Tour. Your guide will tailor the sightseeing to your available time and will know exactly when to drop you back at the airport.
Vienna Travel Planning
Arriving At Vienna
Vienna International Airport is located 12 km south east of the city and runs three terminals and two runways (a third is being discussed).
I love travelling home by plane, whether I come in from the northwest (London) or southwest (Portugal). When flying there, get your camera ready for a few nice shots. If you arrive from the West to South West (not London, unfortunately) you may get the pleasure of flying over the Austrian Alps. If you come in from the East, you will likely notice a big lake right before you arrive in Vienna. This is Lake Neusiedl, one of the few veld lakes in Europe and World Heritage Site due to its stunning wetland wildlife.
