Niki

Austrian low-cost carrier Niki will add its ninth aircraft, a 212-seat Airbus A321, on May 9 and has an additional nine A320 family aircraft on order for delivery by 2014. "The average age of the fleet is now between 1.5 and two years," founder and majority owner Niki Lauda said. A pilot himself, Lauda just received his type rating for the A330 but he does not see long-haul flights from VIE as practical for at least another year. Apr 14, 2008

Niki will begin serving Stockholm Arlanda on May 1 and is looking at routes from Vienna scheduled to be abandoned by loss-making SkyEurope Airlines. "We are evaluating Vienna-Innsbruck services, a route that creates 240,000 passengers annually. As an LCC, we look for new routes where there is potential of around 100,000 passengers to travel over a year," Lauda said. As a partner of airberlin, Niki also has launched feeder flights to Dusseldorf to support AB/LTU's long-haul network. Apr 14, 2008
