You don’t need to go anywhere else to find the lowest fares on flights to Salzburg. Find out why it should be on your travel wish list...
As the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Salzburg sings the glories of its famous composer son at the top of its vocal range. Musical notes also come courtesy of the city’s connections with “The Sound of Music” – catch a dinner show, visit filming locations or see the Von Trapps in puppet form at the Salzburger Marionettentheater puppet theatre.
You’ll revel in Mozart and Maria as much as the city does, although there’s much more than music on offer in Salzburg. Fairy-tale castles, charming museums, buzzing town squares and a Christmas market to make Santa proud mean Salzburg flights from the UK are busy throughout the year.
Get your seat booked and discover the charms of one of Austria’s loveliest cities.
Flights to Salzburg from London offer one of the cheapest ways to reach Austria, with other UK departure points also presenting low-cost options. Use the search superpowers of TravelSupermarket to find your ideal flight in seconds.

With the ski season in full swing, there is a huge range of winter flights to Salzburg. Easyjet operates from Luton, Gatwick, Bristol and Liverpool; British Airways flies from London Gatwick and Glasgow; Ryanair takes off from London Stansted; Jet2 leaves from Leeds Bradford, Edinburgh and Manchester; and Monarch departs from Birmingham. This is in addition to the holiday flight charters with companies such as Thomson and Thomas Cook from around the UK. Flights take a little under two hours.
