Laudamotion – about the airline
Laudamotion is an Austrian low cost airline. The carrier's history is quite long. The airline was founded in 2003 under the name Niki, and one of the co-founders was former Formula 1 champion Lauda Niki. A year later, the carrier started cooperation with Air Berlin and in 2011 both lines were joined together. Unfortunately, in December 2017, Niki ceased operations. In January 2018 Lauda Niki bought the Air Berlin line and re-launched their operation with the current name - Laudamotion. The important fact is that Ryanair owns 75% of the company's shares and supports the carrier not only financially but also helps in managing the airlines. In the following years, the carrier will develop dynamically – the offer is addressed to passengers travelling mainly in Southern Europe, and the competitive prices of Laudamotion airline tickets are one of many advantages of the airline.
The Laudamotion IATA code is OE. The carrier's head offices are located in Vienna. Laudamotion online check-in is free and available to most travellers. There is also the possibility of check-in at the airport.
