About Lauda

Lauda, which is legally known as Laudamotion GmbH, is an Austrian airline that operates scheduled passenger services throughout Europe. The airline was founded in 2004 and is based at Vienna International Airport (VIE). Laudamotion has a route network that flies over 100 destinations in more than 30 countries. The airline flies from five bases in Austria, Germany, Spain and Croatia.

Formerly known and founded as Amira air, the airline was founded in 2004 and initially operated as a charter airline flying internationally from Vienna. In 2016, ex FormulaOne World Driver champion, Niki Lauda bought out the company and renamed the airline 'Laudamotion'. After continuing to run charter flights for a short period of time, the airline moved to its current base at Vienna International to begin scheduled passenger flights. In early 2018, Niki, an airline that had associations with Niki Lauda retired its services and as a result, Lauda acquired all of Niki's operations, as well as 15 aircraft.

In August 2018, Ryanair announced the acquisition of 75% of the shareholding for Laudamotion. Shortly thereafter, the airline announced that it had fully taken control of Lauda airlines, making it one of three airlines' wholly owned by Ryanair, along with Ryanair Sun and Ryanair UK.

In 2019, Lauda changed its trading name from 'Laudamotion' to Lauda, which is what it is known as today. Along with this rebrand, Lauda announced that it intends to expand its fleet to 38 Airbus A320 aircraft by summer 2020.

The Fleet

The Lauda fleet contains all Airbus A320-200 aircraft. As of February 2020, the airline had 24 of this aircraft in operation, with another one on order.

The company has previously stated that their fleet will remain exclusively Airbus, with future expansion plans detailing the purchase of at least 100 Airbus A321neo.
