Air traffic also fails

There will also be a failure to fly. Of course, the largest airport, Vienna Schwechat, is naturally the hardest hit. But flights in Graz, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Linz and Klagenfurt can also be cancelled.

At Vienna airport, for example, as of Friday early afternoon, 45 flights to and from Munich, Frankfurt and Stuttgart alone were affected, an Etihad Airways spokeswoman said when asked by Appa. The AUA comprehensively informs its passengers. A Vienna Airport spokesperson also asked all travelers to obtain information about their flights from airlines or tour operators. Not only does the AUA connect Vienna or federal state airports with German airports.
