How to book

When booking your journey online, you have two options to book your train ticket together with your Emirates flight (depending on your selected origin or destination in Austria).

When your origin or destination is one of the seven major cities listed in the table above, simply select the respective city – as you would if you were booking a normal flight.

If you’re booking through an Emirates office or travel agent, ask them to add the Rail & Fly service for you before they complete your booking.

Before your departure

You’ll need to check in for your train journey online or at one of the ÖBB-Reisezentrum ticket offices within 72 hours of your train’s departure and print your rail boarding pass. You’ll need to show the boarding pass to the conductor, along with your ID. If you don't have a rail boarding pass, you will be asked to buy another ticket.

During your journey

If you’re flying in Economy Class, your train journey will be in Second Class. When you fly First Class or Business Class, train travel will be in First Class and you’ll also get complimentary access to ÖBB lounges at all major stations.
