If you are  planning on originating your travels in Vienna or simply have a long layover during July and August, make sure to take advantage of AUSTRIAN’s Business Lounge sale.   Typically  the lounge access costs €35 per visit, but during for this promotion it will only cost €17.50.

The last time that I was in ‘VIE’ I had a chance to visit the new lounge which is located in the new dedicated Star Alliance Terminal.   The terminal is set up in a very efficient manner, with a fairly large buffet by Do&Co and beverage area along with ample seating.    It has  a decent view of a view gates as well for the planespotter in you.

Additionally, there is complimentary WiFi , a Business Center complete with computers, fax and telephones and a dedicated “Quiet Area”.

There are 2 Business Lounges available.  One in the Schengen area and on in the non-Schengen area.  Which Lounge you can access will depend on your itinerary.    Eligibility is open to anyone traveling on a Austrian or Austrian partner operated flight.    Economy Class passengers are eligible for the discount as well.

You can purchase your lounge pass as soon as 36 hours prior to your scheduled departure or simply walk into the lounge and purchase your pass at that point.

Please be aware that each lounge access pass is valid for one person.   You can not “guest” someone into the lounge.   Also, the pass is not transferrable.
