Laudamotion to launch Croatia flights

NEWS FLASH


Ryanair and newcomer Laudamotion today announced details of the latter's 2018 summer schedule with a total of 21 aircraft operating from nine cities in Austria and Germany on 61 routes starting this June, including Pula and Rijeka. Last week, Laudamotion and Ryanair announced a new aviation partnership where the Irish airline is initially taking a 24.9% stake in the Vienna-based carrier, which will increase to 75% subject to approval by the EU Competition Authority. Niki Lauda will chair the newly created Laudamotion Board and be responsible in his new role for establishing Laudamotion as an Austrian low cost airline for the scheduled and charter market. This agreement with Ryanair will allow the gradual growth of Laudamotion in Austria, which currently has a fleet of ten Airbus aircraft formerly operated by the now defunct Air Berlin subsidiary Niki. Laudamotion’s new Berlin Tegel base will open on June 1 with four aircraft. The airline will maintain flights to seventeen destinations from the German capital, among which are Pula and Rijeka. Services to Pula will launch on June 1, while flights to Rijeka will commence on the following day. Both will be maintained twice per week. Further details for the Pula route can be found here, while additional information for the new Rijeka service can be viewed here.

    1. Nobody will fly this route. There is no interest + it would be too expensive for them to operate it.

    2. No interest according to which source?

    6. Do not be ridiculous. ZAG-VIE is so close that hardly anybody flies that route. The vast majority are transfer PAX.
      SPU-VIE is a cash cow for both OS and OU but here the same, majority transfer PAX

    1. EasyJet already said that they will move all flights to TXL. The double destinations served from both airports are a matter of AB insolvency and the resulting chaos. Ryanair wants to fight Easy in TXL (and Wizz) and as they do in so many cities. Flights are operated by Ryanair and can only booked on Rynair.com. O Leary got the slots he wanted in TXL to fight EZY.

    1. Flights will only be bookable on Ryanair.com as they will be operated by FR using slots of MR. Lauda.

  6. I do not read anything here from the experts, who insisted all the time that Mr. Lauda is just a figurehead for Lufthansa.

    Any more arguments to prove your "info"?
