NIKI was an Austrian airline that operated from 2003 until 2017. It was originally founded by Niki Lauda, the famous Formula One racing driver. However, please note that my knowledge is based on information available up until September 2021, and there may have been developments since then.

NIKI primarily operated as a leisure airline, offering both scheduled and charter flights to various destinations in Europe and North Africa. The airline had its main base at Vienna International Airport (VIE) in Austria.

In 2011, NIKI became a subsidiary of airberlin, another German airline. However, in 2017, both airberlin and NIKI faced financial difficulties, and as a result, NIKI filed for insolvency. Following the insolvency, the assets of NIKI were acquired by International Airlines Group (IAG), the parent company of British Airways and Iberia.

After the acquisition, NIKI briefly operated as an IAG subsidiary under the brand “Niki” before being integrated into the Vueling Airlines brand. As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, NIKI as an independent airline no longer operates.


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.


Travel Class

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.


Economy Class

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.


Business Class

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.


Frequent Flyer Program

NIKI offered the frequent flyer program, Topbonus.

Topbonus is the same program offered by Air Berlin. Topbonus miles can be redeemed against a large selection of travel accessories, electronics, sports, leisure items and lots more.
