Ready to discover Austria’s beautiful Alpine city? Fly straight to Salzburg with British Airways from London Heathrow or London Gatwick. Your journey couldn’t be easier. Just book on to one of our inexpensive flights; there are departures every day direct to Salzburg from London.
You’ll spend less than two hours in the air before descending over the mountains and landing at Salzburg Airport. From here, it’s up to you: city break, mountain retreat, Mozart pilgrimage… All are within easy reach – and Salzburg city centre is a mere ten minutes from the airport. Book car hire with British Airways, pick up your ride at the airport and prepare to explore Austria’s beautiful countryside.
You can fly to Salzburg (SZG) from both London Gatwick (LGW) and London Heathrow (LHR). Our Gatwick flights depart every day. Our Heathrow flights depart on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Choose to fly with hand baggage only or pick a price that includes a 23kg checked baggage allowance and free seat selection 48 hours before you fly. You can also buy delicious food from British food favourite M&S, on board all flights from/to London Heathrow and London Gatwick. For your convenience we will only accept payment by credit/debit cards on board, and Executive Club Members can pay with Avios via the British Airways app.
It couldn’t be easier to navigate to the city centre once you land. Salzburg Airport is small and manageable, and it’s just a ten minute-drive from here to Salzburg city centre, or a direct 25-minute train ride. You can book car hire, in partnership with British Airways, and pick up your wheels from the airport: useful if you want to drive up to the skiing at Zell am See, Kaprun and the resort town of Saalbach-Interglemm.
Salzburg experiences four seasons, with the summer months reaching temperatures between 25 and 30°C. In contrast, the winter months are colder, with temperatures below 10°C between November and April. Thanks to its close proximity to the Alps, Salzburg gets its fair share of precipitation: snow in winter and rain in summer – be sure to pack accordingly.
