The Vienna Airport Lines offer three connections between the airport and Vienna city centre. If you wish to pay a visit to the Secretariat, you should opt for the connection to and from Morzinplatz.

A taxi rank can be found directly outside the airport. Inside the arrival hall there are taxi companies with fixed rate charges. With some companies you can book your transfer on-line prior to your arrival. The fixed rate charge to the city centre levels on average 33 EUR. Radio stations in Vienna (31300, 40100 and 60160) offer a fixed price transfer for 36 EUR.
If you take a taxi at the airport without making a prior booking, the charge from the airport to the city centre of Vienna varies from 40 to 50 EUR. Please, be aware that not all taxies accept credit cards.
Out of environmental considerations (refer to EMAS), the Secretariat discourages its participants to opt for a taxi. Should you be eligible for reimbursement of your travel cost, the Secretariat reimburses no taxi bills.
