Book a Private Jet to Graz
Graz Airport (GRZ) is the oldest and fourth largest airport in Austria. In addition to the surrounding region’s rich history and the airport’s excellent connections to national and international airports, Graz Airport offers a range of exclusive services for private jet passengers.
The History of Graz Thalerhof Airport
Graz Airport was first built in 1913, when the Austro-Hungarian Empire set up a grass air field for military flights. The first aircraft took off from the air field on 26 June 1914.
In the decades after the First World War, Graz Airport was expanded to accommodate larger aircraft. When the airport resumed regular operations after the Second World War, the number of passengers rose rapidly. From 1962 to 1969, the number of flights to Graz quadrupled. As a result of this business boom, much expansion work had to take place in order to maintain the airport’s functional capacity.
In 2000, Graz Thalerhof Airport’s roster of possible destinations dramatically increased. In order to service long haul flights, a modern control tower and a new departure hall were built. These further expansions nearly doubled the airport’s capacity from pre-2000 numbers. The airport is also home to the Österreichische Luftfahrtmuseum (Austrian Aviation Museum); a reminder of the airport’s eventful history.
The airport itself is built on land that was once home to one of the largest and most luxurious Roman villas in central Europe. Built almost 1800 year ago, Villa Thalerhof was a huge, sprawling construction, consisting of 80 rooms made of stucco, including saunas, complex mosaics, and even an underground heating system.

Charter Flights to Graz – Travel with Nature in Mind
Graz Airport’s operators have placed a premium on minimising the airport’s carbon footprint and as such the airport has run an Ökoprofit (eco-profit) cooperation project for the past 15 years. As part of their measures to reduce the airport’s environmental impact, the operators exchanged old metal vapour lamps, for example, for energy-efficient LEDs. In addition, several e-filling stations have been installed in the parking areas of the airport and an environmental round table takes place twice a year with local residents and nature conservation associations.
