Niki Lauda, the former motor racing driver and founder of Nikki airlines has submitted an offer for the insolvent Austrian airline Niki, a spokeswoman for Lauda said on Thursday.
Niki was an Austrian low-cost airline headquartered in Office Park I at Vienna International Airport in Schwechat. It operated scheduled and charter services to European and North African leisure destinations from Vienna, Salzburg, Graz and Innsbruck and also started services from several German airports in March 2017. Niki ceased all operations on 14 December 2017.
Niki filed for insolvency last week after Germany’s Lufthansa, which is buying other parts of Air Berlin, scrapped plans to buy Niki, grounding the airline’s fleet and stranding thousands of passengers.
The spokeswoman said she can confirm that Niki Lauda handed in an offer (for Niki) but she wont be able to say how much he offered.
