Are the SIMs widely sold at retail, including Vienna airport?

Is activation of the data plans immediate?
A1 has their own stores in larger towns and cities. They also sell through dealers. The Austrian post office is one of those dealers so you can get SIMs and credits almost anywhere.

A1's website has a convenient "Shops & Händler" (shops and dealers) page where you can search for the nearest retail outlet. It shows there's a dealer at VIE,
EGR sales and Handelsges.mbH
Obj.115, check-in 3, Ebene 0/014-015, 1300 Wien-Flughafen
Phone: +431700739591
You'll find many others all over Vienna.

A1 shops and independent phone shop dealers will generally be happy to assist you with activating your account and configuring your SIM. (I don't know if the post office clerks will do that.)

Phones: OnePlus 5 • Nexus 5
SIMs: CA Fido/Fongo • AT
R.I.P.: UM • UM+
