“Aerial transport – either business trips or inevitable (private) trips – will be safer and easier,” airport representatives said, as quoted by TASR.

People who start quarantine will have the option to leave if they test negative for COVID-19, the airport said.

The test provided at the airport costs €190 and is available to travellers flying out of Vienna as well since they must present negative tests at their destination.
