An extensive Vienna-based European network called City Shuttle beginning with the winter schedule 2018/19 and including a new direct service to and from Dublin is in the planning stages at Niki Lauda’s new airline LaudaMotion.
The carrier says it will operate the Dublin service from October with an Airbus A320 aircraft. Marrakech and Amman are also slated to join the network, plus European capitals including Bucharest, Copenhagen, London (Stansted), Madrid, Paris Beauvais and Rome.
LaudaMotion also plans to serve Barcelona, Bergamo, Bologna, Faro, Krakow, Larnaca and Seville from the Austrian capital, along with Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Tenerife in the Canary Islands.
The Austrian low-cost carrier, formed out of insolvent carrier Niki, which was formerly part of Air Berlin, is owned by Lauda, a former Formula 1 racing driver. Ryanair bought a 24.9% stake in the company in March and said it aims to increase that stake to 75% "as soon as possible”, subject to EU regulatory approval.
Air Transport World said the airline also plans to operate eight or nine Airbus A320neos this winter as a result of talks in collaboration with Ryanair with Airbus and leasing companies.
