communication channels stipulated for this purpose, stating that the depositary
bank was appointed to serve as the proxy.
Even after appointing a proxy, shareholders may still personally attend the

also apply analogously to the revocation of proxy.

Up until now, i.e. following the last election by the Annual General Meeting,

members elected by the Annual General Meeting (shareholder representatives). Of
the ten shareholder representatives, eight are men and two are women. The Works
Council, which designates five members of the Supervisory Board, consists of
five men.
Women comprise less than 20% of the staff of Flughafen Wien Aktiengesellschaft.

to the minimum required quota of women do not apply.

4. The right of shareholders to obtain information pursuant to Section 118 AktG
On request, every shareholder must be provided with information concerning the
business matters of the Company at the Annual General Meeting, if this
information is necessary to enable the shareholder to properly evaluate any item
on the agenda. This obligation to provide information also covers the Company's
legal relations with an associated company as well as the status of the Group
and companies included in the consolidated financial statements.
This request for information may be refused if by the Company, according to
sound business judgment, it could result in significant damage to the Company or
a subsidiary, or if the provision of this information would comprise a criminal
offense punishable under law.
In accordance with Section 14 of the Articles of Association, the chairperson of
the Annual General Meeting may set appropriate limits for the time allotted to
speakers and the time allotted for questions. In particular, he or she may set
general and individual limitations, especially at the beginning of but also
during the Annual General Meeting, for speaking time and time for posing
questions.
Generally, the request for information on the part of shareholders at the Annual
General Meeting is to be submitted orally but may also be submitted in written
form.
Any questions whose responses require lengthy preparation should, in the
interest of holding an efficient meeting, be submitted in written form to the
Management Board in due time prior to the Annual General Meeting. Questions may

5. Proposing motions at the Annual General Meeting pursuant to Section 119 AktG
Every shareholder, regardless of the extent of shareholding, is entitled to
bring forward motions in respect to each item on the agenda at the Annual
General Meeting. This right to bring forward a motion is contingent upon proof
of the right to participate in the Annual General Meeting as stipulated in the
invitation.
If several motions have been proposed for one item on the agenda, the Chairman
of the Annual General Meeting determines the order of voting pursuant to Section
119 Para. 3 AktG.
However, the pre-requisite for a shareholder motion on item 6 on the agenda
"Elections to the Supervisory Board" is the timely transmission of a resolution
pursuant to Section 110 AktG. Only shareholders whose total shareholding equals
1% or more of the Company's share capital can propose candidates for election to
the Supervisory Board. Such election proposals must be received in the above-
mentioned manner (Point V Para. 2 of this invitation) no later than on April 23,
2019. Every proposal for election to the Supervisory Board must be accompanied
by the candidate's declaration pursuant to Section 87 Para. 2 AktG concerning
his or her professional qualifications, professional or comparable positions as
well as any circumstances which could give rise for concerns regarding
partiality. Otherwise the shareholder motion relating to the election of a
Supervisory Board member may not be taken into consideration.
The minimum required quota of women pursuant to Section 86 Para. 7 AktG does not
apply to Flughafen Wien Aktiengesellschaft.
