Right off the bat I thought the tail looks a bit like Air Berlin. Anyone else or is that just me? Lol
Also I like the use of red. Nice bright color. Hope this airline’s launch is successful.
Did anyone else know this was a coming soon airline?
Actually, he used to own “Niki” airline after owning Lauda Air (Later sold to Austrian). However, the airline became one of Air Berlin’s subsidiary. The airline ceased on the day when Air Berlin ceased their operations. The aircrafts that Niki formerly owned were given to IAG for Vueling
It’s pretty coincidental as former Niki Lauda’s airline was part of Air Berlin. Maybe this could mean something? I believe Niki Lauda must have bought the copyright for the logo and perhaps they recruited some of former Air Berlin staffs.
What an amazing man, Mr. Lauda. If you guys just know him as the face of an airline, I highly recommend you guys see what this man has gone through and what he has since done. Amazing. Either way, good to see a second life for his airline. Incredible.
After Air Berlin filed for bankruptcy, Niki Lauda managed to buy Air Berlins subsidiary company „Niki“; which as a fun fact was founded by him.
Thanks to that, he got their landing slots and 15 out of their 21 airplanes.
Laudamotion was originally called „Amira Air“. Niki Lauda changed the name of the airline and merged it with Niki so they’re now both flying under the name „Laudamotion“. And because Niki was a subsidiary company of Air Berlin this livery contains the Air Berlin Logo although I’m not sure if it actually stays that way. It might be a little marketing move before it’ll be changed later.
