Key Highlights
Given the sluggish domestic demand in the eurozone and fragile global economic recovery, Timetric expects the Austrian economy to grow at a modest pace of 0.5% in 2013. However, the economy is forecast to grow in the range of 1.61.9% over the remainder of the forecast period, in line with improvements in domestic and external demand conditions.
According to Eurostat, in terms of tourism intensity, defined as the number of nights spent by residents and non-residents in the country compared to the countrys population, the Alpine region in Austria is among the most attractive destinations in the EU-27.
Austrias central location in Europe, at the intersection of trade and travel routes, is beneficial not only for the travel and tourism sector but also in terms of investment and business. As of 2012, headquarters or production sites of more than 300 international companies are located in Austria, of which 28 are Fortune 500 companies.
Mean household income is expected to increase over the forecast period, increasing domestic tourist volumes as a result. The country also witnessed an increase in spa offers and adventure activity tours.
Initiatives taken by the Austrian government are expected to attract more businesses to the country. The GmbH (limited liability companies) reform, which came into effect on 1st July 2013, lowered the minimum start-up capital to found a GmbH in Austria from EUR35,000 to EUR10,000. The reform is expected to lead to the setting up of an extra 1,000 GmbHs every year which will create new jobs and lead to an increase in business-related travel.
Outbound tourism from Austria is also encouraged by the attractive outbound packages and deals offered by tour operators and airlines. Austrian Airlines, the leading airline in Austria, launched a new charter service called myHoliday, replacing Lauda Air Luftfahrt GmbH which connected holiday destinations in Europe and North Africa. Starting in April 2013, the airline will run flights to destinations previously served by Lauda Air, with some new additions such as Mallorca, Volos Island and Palermo.
To attract customers and gain market share, airlines provide customers with unique services at competitive prices. Austrian Airlines, Austrias flag carrier airline, launched its new business class service in April 2013. The service is aimed specifically at business travelers, providing in-flight facilities such as extra storage space, seats convertible to full flat beds, and built-in massagers. The airline also provides all passengers with an in-flight chef.
An increase in demand for health and wellness tourism in Austria led to the development of specialty hotels offering hybrid facilities, combining spa and wellness facilities with hotel services. Specialty hotels include Best Wellness Hotels Austria, with a presence in 26 locations in Austria and South Tyrol, and Falkensteiner Hotels and Residences, with six wellness hotels in Austria among its 14 hotels in the country.
High fuel prices in Europe, mainly due to high fuel taxes, are a major concern. Austria was ranked 23rd in the world, out of 60 countries, in terms of most expensive gas. Such high fuel prices exert cost pressures on car rental suppliers and tourists.
The growth of online travel intermediaries can be attributed to the increasing internet penetration in the country. According to Internet World Stats, there were over 6.5 million internet users (79.8% of the total population) in Austria as of June 2012. In the five-year period from 2005 to 2010, the number of internet users increased by 26%. Additionally, according to Statistics Austria, during the 12-month period from April 2011 to March 2012, 48.5% of Austrians bought goods and services online.
