- Salzburg Winter
Famous for its winter wonderland scenery, musical heritage and, of course, The Sound of Music, Salzburg is a top tourist destination. And the best time to visit this magical city is around Christmas, with the festive market, street lights and good will filling the streets with cheer. So if you need to find winter flights to Salzburg from Scotland airports, here are your options.
Many airlines operate seasonal flights from Scottish airports to the Austrian city of Salzburg, to take advantage of increased tourist demand at that time of year. Jet2 fly direct from Edinburgh Airport to Salzburg with special charter deals departing on the 24th of December and returning on the 31st of December, just in time for the Hogmanay. These flights start at £187 per person based on one person travelling, and including all taxes and fees. Jet2 also offer a free baggage allowance on these flights, so ideal for those taking ski equipment.
Thomson Airways also fly direct to Salzburg. Flights from Glasgow can be had for reasonable fees, though passengers have to wait until the autumn for final prices and schedules to be released. For more info about this route, contact Thomson Holidays. It is also worth keeping an eye on the BMI flight timetables, as they have previously ran a seasonal service from Glasgow to Salzburg.
Finally, for flights to Salzburg from Scotland, you can fly with British Airways via London Gatwick. These tickets can be had from £329 for flights in the peak Christmas period. Passengers receive free hot drinks and meals and can choose their own seats through BA'a own online check in service.
