Vienna: Full of Eastern Promise

This article describes efforts at Vienna’s International Airport (VIE) leading to VIE becoming the new hub for the burgeoning air transportation market in Eastern Europe. The ability of an airport to successfully maintain a low minimum connecting time (MCT) between flights is a necessity of such hubs, and Vienna’s efforts to reduce MCT are discussed accordingly. Strong MCT at the airport has yielded a rise of 4.2 percent in use of VIE as a connecting airport between 2005 and 2006, indicative that the airport’s intentions have begun to be realized. Some of the results listed from 2006 include a rise in passengers traveling to Near Eastern countries, the desired Eastern European growth, a growth in low-cost carriers (LCC), as well as growth in its cargo flights.
