From Vienna to Innsbruck: flight or railway?

railwayThe Austrian railway does not care about the cheap airline tickets from Vienna to Innsbruck. “We won’t decrease our fares”, says the spokesman of the Austrian railway “ÖBB”.

The airlines of SkyEurope and Tyrolean offer very cheap tickets to fly from Vienna to Innsbruck and back. One flight is possible for 29 EUR. By way of comparison: for the same destination one railway ticket in the second class cost 52,10 EUR.

At the moment the travel time by railway from Vienna to Innsbruck amounts 5 hours. The Austrian railway is more interested to decrease the travel time instead of the travel costs. The “ÖBB” thinks the airlines are no real competitors for the railway.
