Non-stop to Madrid with NIKI

After introducing non-stop City Shuttle services between Vienna and Barcelona (March 2010), and Vienna and Valencia (February 2011), NIKI launched a new direct Vienna–Madrid service on 28 March.

In addition to these routes, NIKI flies to a further 18 Spanish destinations from Vienna, Linz, Salzburg and Innsbruck.

According to owner Niki Lauda:
“Our routes are successful because we have the right package or both business travellers and holidaymakers. In the case of Madrid in particular, I am confident that the introduction of direct flights from Vienna will help us to increase passenger volumes.

We are offering an attractive product for business travellers and tourists alike: state-of-the-art aircraft, free snacks and drinks, friendly service and attractive schedules – including flights via Palma with our partner airberlin.”

Top-class service at great prices

“The passenger comes first” is more than just a slogan – outstanding service and passenger comfort are the NIKI team’s number one priority. The award-winning in-flight service includes free sandwiches from Demel, drinks, newspapers and magazines.

NIKI also puts the passenger first before take-off. The online check-in facility with free seat reservation available at helps to cut passenger waiting times at the airport.

Trips from Vienna to Madrid are available from EUR 44.99 one-way, including all taxes and fees, as well as on-board service.

Frequent flyers can earn topbonus miles on all NIKI and airberlin flights.

Bookings are available online at, via the Service Centre on 0820 737800 and from travel agents.
