Niki (also styled as NIKI or flyNiki, legally NIKI Luftfahrt GmbH) is an Austrian low-cost airline headquartered in Office Park I at Vienna International Airport in Schwechat. It operates scheduled and charter services to European and North African leisure destinations from Vienna, Salzburg, Graz, and Innsbruck and also started services from several German airports in March 2017.
In 2003 Niki Lauda, ex-Grand Prix driver and founder of Lauda Air, acquired the former Aero Lloyd Austria operation. The airline started operations on 28 November 2003.
Although Niki is often described as “low-cost”, it provides full service, such as free refreshments, newspapers, and baggage. It offers a sandwich or a cold snack, soft drinks, tea and coffee on all short-haul flights as well as on charter routes to Greece, Tunisia, and Turkey. On mid-haul charter flights to the Canary Islands and Egypt, all passengers are offered a warm snack. Also, gourmet menus from Demel can be ordered before the flight. There is also a buy on board service.
On 9 January 2004, Niki announced cooperation with Air Berlin. In late 2011, Niki merged completely with Air Berlin, sharing operations, booking systems and aircraft. On 20 March 2012, Niki became an “affiliate member” of Oneworld as a subsidiary company of Air Berlin. Since late 2012, Niki successively repaints their aircraft in the Air Berlin paint scheme, using the Niki logo only on the nose. The new paint scheme was applied during regular C checks.
In October 2014, Niki announced the cancellation of their flights from Vienna to Copenhagen, Moscow, and Frankfurt due to decreasing demand. In exchange, new leisure routes will be started by summer 2015. Also in spring 2015, Niki started to replace its fleet of Embraer 190s with Airbus A319-100s from its parent, Air Berlin, with the used Embraers being transferred to Helvetic Airways.
