Laudamotion – about the airline
Laudamotion Airlines is a low-cost Austrian carrier and its history is quite long. The airlines were founded in 2003 as Niki; one of the cofounders was the former Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda. A year later, the carrier began cooperation with Air Berlin, and in 2011 both airlines merged. Unfortunately, in December of 2017 Niki suspended business activities. In January 2018, Niki Lauda repurchased the insolvent airlines from Air Belin and resumed operations a few months later under the current name Laudamotion. Importantly, at present 100% of the airline’s shares is owned by Ryanair. The carrier is looking to dynamic growth in the following years – it directs its offer to those traveling mainly in Southern Europe, and the competitive price of Laudamotion’s air tickets is one of many advantages of the airline.
The IATA Laudamotion code is OE. The seat of the carrier is located in Vienna. Laudamotion online check-in is free and available to most travellers. Check-in at the airport is also possible.
