Innsbruck Airport Bus

Innsbruck Airport (INN), also known as Kranebitten Airport, is the biggest international airport in Tyrol, Austria. It is situated only 4 kilometres from the centre of Innsbruck. The airport handles regional flights around the Alps, especially during the winter, when the activity increases significantly, due to the skiing season.

How to get from Innsbruck Airport to Innsbruck

Local bus

Bus line F connects Innsbruck main station with the airport. The journey takes about 20 minutes and the bus ticket costs around 2€ for the adults.

NOTE: The ticket costs a bit more if you buy it in the bus.

Train

The airport does not have direct railway link, so we suggest taking previously mentioned bus line F which will take you to the main station (Hauptbahnhof). However, the nearest train stop is approximately 2 kilometres from the airport (Innsbruck Hötting) and you can take lines REX or S5 to the main station.

Taxi services

Since Innsbruck is relatively small town and there are not many possibilities of getting to the city centre by public transport, you should consider getting a taxi. The taxi from the airport to the town centre should cost a lot because the airport is just 4 kilometres from the centre.

Transfer

Another way to travel from Innsbruck Airport is with a private, door-to-door transfer directly to your accommodation in the city. You can pre-book a transfer for a hassle-free experience, professional driver will wait for you at the airport and take you to your destination.

      The best option to get to Oetz from Innsbruck is by taking a train from Innsbruck Hbf. Train will make one stop at Ötztal Bahnhof where you will need to make a transfer to train to Oetz Gemeindeamt. Total journey time should be around 1 hour.

    I’m flying into Innsbruck and want to get to Mayrhofen. We’ve been told to get the Bus F from the airport to Innsbruck HBF then train via Jenbach. Can we purchase 1 ticket for the whole journey or do we have to book the bus separately? Can we buy tickets at the airport ?
    many thanks
    Kate

    • Melani   •     Author

      Dear Kate,

      Bus ticket is valid only for journey between Innsbruck Airport and Innsbruck HBF, so you will need to book two separate tickets. Tickets can be bought at the airport, directly from the driver.
