Review: Austrian Airlines Business Class Lounge, Vienna Airport


This Austrian Airlines Business Class Lounge Vienna Airport Review is from our recent visit at Vienna Airport, after our Austrian Airlines Business Class flight from NYC. We were headed to St. Petersburg, Russia, so our visit was to the Non-Schengen Lounge.

Austrian Airlines Business Class Lounge Vienna Airport Location, Access and Hours

The Austrian Airlines Business Class lounge that we visited is located airside, in the Non-Schengen G section of Terminal 3. Follow the signs, and take the elevator to the 4th floor, where the lounge is located. Exiting the elevator, the lounge entrance will be on your left.

The Austrian Business Class Lounge is open daily from 5:30am to 11pm, and the following passengers enjoy complimentary access:

  • Passengers with a Business Class boarding pass for an Austrian Airlines or Star Alliance flight on the same day
  • Passengers with an Economy Class boarding pass for an Austrian Airlines or Star Alliance flight on the same day, who also have a valid Miles & More Frequent Flyer card

Austrian Airlines Business Class Lounge Vienna Amenities
 
The lounge is more tastefully decorated than the Jet Lounge that we previously visited, and there are windows that overlook the tarmac, providing ample natural light.

While the tables and chairs near the entrance are nothing special, there's a curved communal table near the small buffet and lighting that gives the lounge a distinctive look:

There's just one shower room, and it was spartan-looking but available for use during our brief visit, even though there were about 15 other guests in the lounge:

Austrian Airlines Business Class Lounge Vienna Airport Food and Drinks

During our visit, around midday, there was very little food in the lounge, which is catered by Do & Co. The main food was a creamy salad, bread, peanuts, cookies, and fresh whole fruit:

The Verdict

While there wasn't much to eat at the Austrian Business Class Lounge at Vienna Airport, at least at this Non-Schengen section lounge near the G gates, I preferred it to the Jet Lounge given its design, natural light, and the fact that there were no flies around the food at the buffet. The shower room was nothing special but it was clean and perfectly serviceable, and importantly, available during our brief visit around midday.
