AIRPOWER24 - fast, easy and stress-free Traffic concept for AIRPOWER24 available.

Vienna / Zeltweg (May 12, 2024) – Together with external traffic experts and experts from the civilian authorities, ASFINAG and the police, a special project group of the Austrian Armed Forces has been working on the details of the traffic concept for AIRPOWER24 since the summer of last year. All information on how to get to AIRPOWER24 has now been published at and all booking interfaces for the numerous options for traveling by public transport have been opened. “The new transport concept can be summarized simply: Convenient, environmentally friendly and just a few minutes’ walk to the heart of the event site. It has never been easier or quicker to travel to AIRPOWER24 by public transport. As Europe’s largest airshow, AIRPOWER24 really is setting new standards in terms of environmentally friendly travel,” says Defense Minister Klaudia Tanner, presenting the key points of the new transport concept for AIRPOWER24.
The key points of the traffic concept:
  • The capacity of public transport will be significantly increased this year with specially hired shuttle trains from provincial capitals and dedicated bus routes with hundreds of possible boarding points throughout Austria directly to Zeltweg.
  • With the simultaneous relief of the Zeltweg train station through the increased use of the Judenburg and Knittelfeld train stations as well as additional parking spaces with shuttle bus services, the passenger frequency at the Zeltweg train station will be significantly minimized on the days of the event.
  • The recently agreed extension of a platform at Zeltweg station will make it possible to increase the frequency of regular train services.

“In any case, we have significantly increased the capacity of public transportation and expect this to reduce the number of journeys by private vehicle. The special ÖBB trains provided by us from Villach, Salzburg, Linz and Vienna will take you to the Judenburg or Knittelfeld train stations in a particularly sustainable, congestion-free and stress-free way, and the convenient free AIRPOWER shuttles will take you directly to the AIRPOWER24 event site in just a few minutes! We will therefore be able to significantly reduce congestion on the access roads and the higher-ranking road network this year, even though a certain amount of congestion cannot be completely avoided with the expected influx at the morning and evening peak, as with any other major event,” explains Brigadier Wolfgang Prieler, AIRPOWER24 Project Manager.

The first 1,000 bus tickets for just 24 euros!
“With our own bus lines with hundreds of possible boarding points throughout Austria, you can get directly to the event site. The first 1,000 bus tickets cost just 24 euros at a special preferential price, regardless of where in Austria you want to travel from. Furthermore, after the end of the flight program at 5 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday until 7 p.m., additional program items, such as an open-air cinema, sports demonstrations and military music performances, will be offered directly in the AIRPOWER24 spectator area to further relieve the evening traffic peak,” adds Colonel Peter Braun, the project manager for all AIRPOWER24 traffic issues.

Parking tickets already available
If you still want to arrive by car or motorcycle, you will need a parking ticket, which can be booked via Ö-Ticket ( in advance. From all parking areas, you can either walk or take one of the free AIRPOWER shuttles directly to the event site. There is also a dedicated motorcycle parking area in the vicinity of the site, which can also be booked in advance via Ö-Ticket. From the parking lot in Kraubath directly next to the S36, you can take a free shuttle train to the event site. The parking ticket is also valid as a train ticket. Persons with physical impairments have their own accessible parking spaces at their disposal. These spaces can be used free of charge upon presentation of the disabled person’s disabled pass.

“However, you have the greatest flexibility if you are traveling from the region by bike. It is possible to travel directly to the event site and park your bike in a separate and secure parking area at the Zeltweg sports center,” concludes Braun.
