Airport-Linz Transportation

Hi,

I'm arriving at LNZ airport at 19:30 from Girona (Spain). Unfortunatly, the last bus to Linz city departs at 19:00. Is there any other options to get to Linz, besides the (expensive) taxi?

Thanks a lot my friends

You can take the train from the (nearby) train station in 'Hörsching' to which a free shuttle can be requested at the airport.

Linz is a very small airport, the bus connection is not the best.

Best is to catch the shuttle bus (free of charge) to the rail station "Hörsching" and catch a train there. Taxi is quite expensive, I think at least 30 euros.

I've just arrived from Austria and it worked perfectly. We asked at the Airport Tourism Info and they promtly managed a free shuttle to the Hörsching Train Station (3 minutes away) and from there we got the train to Linz Hauptbahnhof.

Everything worked fine. However, it should have buses right after the flights, at least 30 minutes after the arrivals, because it would be complicated if I didn't some research at the internet and even at the Hörshing Station, a small local station, there's no info or ticket desk, only machines to buy tickets, which could be a bit confusing for some people not used to those kind of situations.

But, after all it worked perfectly fine for me. Thanks for tips everybody.
