At Vienna International Airport visitors are given a glimpse behind the scenes: in the visitor world at the Airport Vienna – the VISITAIR Center – there are various offers to visit. Anyone who has always wanted to know how an international airport works is right here. The insight can be in the form of a visit to the visitor world, as part of a guided tour, the experience world of flying can be met live.
Visitor World – Visit Air
What does it look like in an airplane cockpit, or what happens in the airport tower, or how does a baggage sorting system actually work, exactly these questions are clarified in the visitor world. A multimedia experience world on 600m² provides a first-hand insight into the different areas and tasks of an international transport hub.
Visitors may also sit in an oversized cockpit and experience virtual takeoffs and landings from the pilot’s perspective. Even the airport tower was replicated and shows the airport from the air traffic controller’s point of view.
