watch LOWS runway reconstruction live

Tue Apr 30, 2019 11:54 am

Every once in a while, an airport is renovated, a runway is repaired or a new one is built. No big thing, except maybe for the local news.

Well, this is what's is going on currently at my home airport. SZG/LOWS is closed until May 28, because the single runway (15/33) is being demolished and rebuilt.
The interesting thing is that they didn't turn off the web cam, so everyone can follow the construction work on a zoomable cam and in pretty decent quality.

I suspect that some a.net viewers might find it interesting to watch... ;-)

Nice of them to leave it up; or maybe they just forgot to turn it off. Either way no loss to them, at least?

How much service do you usually have in SZG, and are there added frequencies to 'nearby' airports? Is it realistic to drive to an alternate airport for most people, or are there also increased trains?

Yes, I know I can look most of these things up myself - but this is a discussion forum after all!

don't know about you, but this is probably the best airport cam I've seen so far. many thanks for sharing the link!
I love the "best shots" function as well as the timelapse and archive.

The other I've started the thread below. I guess at this time of year most passengers using the airport fly with OS, hence the AIRail service increase. Last year the airport handled 1,844,362 passengers.

I believe the "nearby" airport, as you call them are Innsbruck, Linz and Munich: https://www.google.at/maps/@47.793603,1 ... a=!3m1!1e3

TK flies to LNZ instead. Others interrupt their services temporarily. OS offers "codeshares" with Austrian Railways ÖBB on Railjet-trains to VIE.
This is your pilot speaking. Welcome to flight one from here to there. We'll be flying at a height of ten feet, going up to twelve and a half feet if we see anything big. My copilot today is a flask of coffee.

In a related thread on Salzburg airport's complete (temporary) closure, it was mentioned that Austrian Railways was increasing the number of trains - including, I believe, a non-stop - to Vienna. Then it's a matter of a transfer to the airport.

Given that it is the end of the ski season but the busy tourist season has not yet begun, this is the perfect time for reconstruction.

Fabulous airport, by the way - I didn't take many pictures at SZG, but I did fly to TXL on airBerlin in 2017, and I posted a trip report on the whole European trip!

Austrian Railways ÖBB operate their regular, direct Railjet-trains between Salzburg (main station) and Vienna Airport on an hourly basis - no extra services. The travel time is a little less than 2 hrs 50 mins. There are some other connections in between which need to change trains and have a somewhat longer journey time.

We actually rode RailJet non-stop from München to Salzburg, and if I remember right, this one continued to Linz, Vienna, and terminated at Budapest. Are the hourly trains between Salzburg and Vienna in addition to longer-distance RailJet services? Or are these part of them?

Some are part of them. In order not go off topic here I again refer to ÖBB's Homepage https://www.oebb.at/en/ with online booking & route planner.
