After taking off from one of Europe’s largest airports you will fly over Munich, cross the border between Germany and Austria over the Alps and come in for a landing at the airport of the city of Innsbruck not only famous for its skiing resorts, but also notorious for a most demanding landing approach, which involves low altitude weaving among the magnificent picks.
Innsbruck Airport is located at the foot of the magnificent Alps, at an altitude of 581 meters above sea level. On approach you can enjoy the view of the beautiful valley leading to the airport.
The airport falls into a difficult category and is often closed due to bad weather. If during the flight you find yourself in the waiting zone, enjoy the trees on the mountain slopes in a quite close distance. At the end of the runway, the Inn River flows. Do your best not to roll out.
