FlyNiki to strengthen European position as oneworld member

[img width=400 height=194]http://atwonline.com/sites/atwonline.com/files/images/DN_FlyNiki_A320_courtesy.jpg[/img]

Vienna-based FlyNiki will strengthen its position in Eastern Europe when Air Berlin (AB) becomes a oneworld member March 20 (ATW Daily News, Feb. 3). FlyNiki, an AB subsidiary, will join the alliance as an affiliate member.

FlyNiki MD Christian Lesjak told ATW in Tel Aviv that alliance membership will generate new potential and secure its position for future growth, especially after Malev Hungarian Airlines ceased operations, which caused oneworld to lose a Budapest hub and some important links to Eastern European destinations (ATW Daily News, Feb. 6).

FlyNiki’s fleet—which includes Airbus A319s, A320s and A321s and Embraer E-190s/195s—will grow from 23 aircraft this year to 26 in 2013 as it adds three more A320s.

Lesjak said the airline is evaluating “new routes to nations like Russia, the Ukraine, the Balkans, Tirana or Sarajevo.”

He said one of the carrier’s highest priorities is hub connectivity within the Berlin Group, such as Vienna (VIE), Berlin, Dusseldorf and Abu Dhabi. Lesjak said that currently less than 10% of the carrier’s passengers are changing aircraft in VIE within the AB group; he expects this to increase in 2012. On some dedicated connecting flights, the transfer share is already around 30% [in VIE], he said. He predicts long-haul routes to VIE will open up, creating growth opportunities for the airline.

In 2011, FlyNiki had a turnover of €435 million ($575.8 million), up 29% compared to €337 million the year before. Lesjak said positive 2011 results will be announced soon. The carrier transported 4.5 million passengers last year, up 32% from 3.4 million in 2010, and is expecting more than five million in 2012.

The carrier operates four Airbus A321s, 10 A320s and seven Embraer E-190s. Two more aircraft will join the fleet this year.
Unora le merge bine, altora nu.

Buna ziua
Si eu am zburat cu fly NIKI la Viena in decembrie 2011, asta desi aveam biletele rezervate la AirBerlin. Sa stiti ca sunt OK din toate punctele de vedere: seriozitate, conditii de zbor si amabilitate cabin crue! Mai neprietenosi , cu noi cei din RO, au fost cei de la chek inn ai Airberlin de pe aeroportul VIE! Foarte reci si plini de ei. Daca se poate, pot sa pun cateva foto cu NIKI atat de la OTP cat si de la VIE.
Multumesc !

Apropo de Niki, joi urmeaza conferinta de presa la Bratislava. Se zvoneste ca vor deschide o baza (zboruri deja bagate in Amadeus, inclusiv un BTS-VIE :) ).

Se pare ca vor fi zboruri double-daily spre BRU cu E190. Dar cum E-jeturile merg la Helvetic ... ramane de vazut.

Pai o sa primeasca 319, nu se anuleaza toate rutele. Alitalia are cam 30 deA320 in plus fata de nevoi, deja se lucreaza la armonizarea rutelor Germania-Italia cu Air Berlin, asa ca in mod firesc vor aparea si oportunitati de flota, chiar daca AB renunta la 737.

Uite, AB are exact 7 A319 ramase.

transferul E-urilor se face prin Bernina Aircraft Leasing (filiala AFCC), care au cumparat flota de la Niki ... e modul cel mai inteligent de a nu-si incarca bilantul...

Nu le-au cumparat de la niki, ci de la o companie detinuta de Niki Lauda. Se zvonea de vreo 2 ani ca Etihad nu sunt multumiti pt ca ratele de leasing erau un fel de poison pill lasat de fostul pilot de Formula 1 la vinzare restului participatiei.

Pai ala e transfer cu autobuzul, cum are si Austrian spre Linz, de exemplu sau Lufthansa spre Mannheim din Frankfurt.
Conform airlineroute.net ruta se va efectua cu Embraer E190 :confused:. Mai mare deranjul ! Cu autocarul ,de la BTS pana-n Viena cred ca am facut sub o ora.

Dupa ce oferta din finala a lui Nini Lauda a fost respinsa - IAG a ramas ultimul pretendent la Niki. Pe care ar prelua-o contra 40mioEUR si cu promisiunile de-a nu o vinde pe bucati si de-a pastra majoritatea personalului.
Niki ar urma sa fie integrata in Vueling.
Din partea Comisiei Europene (care se opusese vindzarii lui Niki la pachet cu airberlin catre LH), se pare ca exista deja un accept tacit - deoarece un IAG mai prezent in Europa de Est ar fi o contragreutate fata de dominatia lui Lufthansa.
Lucrurile vor merge foarte repede acu', deoarece extinderea AOC-ului lui Niki expira pe 03jan18.

Dar tb sa ne fie clar ca Niki nu mai este City Carrierul din primii lor ani ci divizia virtuala de leisure a Air Berlin. Pentru Vueling inseamna primar intarirea cotei de piata in Palma.
