Our offer to you


Do you value opportunities for development?

We offer special training courses in each area of our exciting fields of activity:

Security Agent

The main duty of VIAS is to provide security control of passengers. A high degree of customer care as well as security awareness is of course essential for this. 

Staff Controls

Goods deliveries must be expected 24 hours a day in a “small town” such as Vienna-Schwechat Airport. For this purpose several check points are distributed around the entire airport grounds to carry out checks on motor vehicles of all types. 

Vehicle Controls

Goods deliveries must be expected 24 hours a day in a “small town” such as Vienna-Schwechat Airport. For this purpose several check points are distributed around the entire airport grounds to carry out checks on motor vehicles of all types. 

Security Control Supervisors

A security control involves innumerable, at times very complex, work routines in the most varied sequence. In order to ensure that these are implemented seamlessly, specially appointed security control supervisors are placed at every control point to oversee these routines.

Service Officer

By providing a service, exclusively at Vienna Airport, for passengers with all manner of concerns, we are breaking new grounds. The so-called Service Officer helps our customers on their way, whatever the issue.

Duty Officer

To pre-empt and manage unexpected situations in the daily routine on time, supervisors are on hand to support staff 24 hours a day.

Daily Planning

1,200 members of staff altogether and 350 staff employed on a daily basis have to be allocated and planned. There are specially trained staff here who have taken on the task of finding the optimum allocation.

Service Planning

Service planning regulates the planning of staff throughout the year.


The Coordinator arranges the scheduling of staff on a day-to-day basis in close cooperation with daily planning and service planning.


We set the border between controlled uncontrolled areas of Vienna-Schwechat Airport. An extremely responsible task, requiring a great deal of skill and know-how.
In order to provide the most up-to-date training, we never stop training and developing each other.

Training Academy

To be able to work in aviation security, you need to go through a good number of training courses and tests. With its own Training Academy, VIAS ensures that all staff receive the best possible level of training.

PRM Service

With a department specially created in 1997, the VIAS company makes it possible for passengers with limited mobility to make their way around such a big airport quickly, comfortably and, above all, safely.

Apron Supervision

Apron Supervision is there to ensure that no unauthorised persons are able to gain access to the secured area of an airport.

Baggage Supervision

The duty of Baggage Supervision is to make sure that the baggage that passengers have checked in is protected against unauthorised access. This is ensured by specially trained personnel.

Aircraft Supervision

Aircraft that need to spend long periods of time in the parking position also have to be watched.
Access to aircraft is subject to particularly stringent regulations.

Service Guide

Specially trained staff are there to make sure that all passengers in the security control area are given optimum preparation for the security control. 

Tracker dogs

The best-trained professionals of VIAS provide support to authorities, airlines and transportation companies with their tracker dogs. Their services now form an essential part of controls.


An in-house administration is necessary for such a high number of staff. The Administration manages and plans work tasks relating to security on a daily basis, and must be in a position to make decisions very quickly.
