NIKI was an Austrian low-cost airline based in at Vienna International Airport, Vienna. NIKI was a subsidiary of Air Berlin, and also partly owned by the well known, ex-Grand Prix World Champion racing driver, Niki Lauda.
The airline was described as a hybrid airline in all senses of the word: part charter, part low cost, part scheduled service operator.
NIKI 's fleet consisted of 24 aircraft, made up of Airbus aircraft, more specifically A319's and A321's with a maximum capacity of 212 seats.
NIKI's Airbus and Embraer fleet and list of destinations have been growing steadily ever since the company's foundation in November 2003. In late 2011, Niki Lauda sold his state in NIKI to fellow shareholder Air Berlin, creating Europe's 1st low-fare alliance. NIKI, however, remains an independent company with its own management.
The airline operated scheduled and direct flights from Vienna to the following destinations: Innsbruck, Zurich, Munich, Frankfurt, Paris, Nice, Milan, Rome, Belgrade, Bucharest, Sofia, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, Olbia, Cagliari and Moscow. Charter flights by NIKI are mainly operated to Greece, Turkey, Egypt and Morocco from Vienna, Salzburg, Graz, Linz and Innsbruck.
Enjoy NIKI's top class service on board. Whether you’re flying Business or Economy Class, you’ll have a warm and affordable crew at your service on all routes.
Passengers can choose up to 138 seats in NIKI's Economy Class. The window seat towards the front of the cabin, the pitch is 30 inches. Pillows, blankets and amenity kits are provided free of charge for all passengers. The pillows are nice and soft, the blanket keeps me reasonably warm, and the amenity kit has the usual suspects – a toothbrush and toothpaste, earplugs, a sleeping mask and socks. NIKI is classed as a low-cost airline, however, the comfort trimmings are on par with full-service carriers.
There were 8 seats in business class with a 2-2 configuration. Onboard, you can relax in the spacious seat with an ample amount of leg space. Business class passengers are given iPads with an inflight program. Movies are shown on shared screens on longer flights. Stay connected with family and friends with access to Wi-Fi. The halal-certified menu is changed four times a year and breakfast choices comprise of a spinach omelette with beef sausage, hash brown and beans or a baked egg atop a chickpea, tomato, onion and eggplant concoction. Enjoy a luxury fruit salad and yoghurt with mango compote to top it off in the end.
NIKI offered the frequent flyer program, Topbonus.
