NEW Florence-Vienna non-stop with NIKI

Good news for the summer season. On 14 May 2012 NIKI will add a Vienna-Florence-Vienna service to its flight schedules. The new route will be available daily except Saturdays, providing an ideal departure point for destinations throughout the Tuscany region. And in the summer NIKI will add yet another Italian destination to its portfolio when the airline introduces a non-stop service to Sardinia.

Florence is a welcome addition to NIKI’s flight schedules. The capital of Tuscany is a perennially popular destination thanks to its location in the heart of Italy and fascinating cultural history, which has made its mark on just about every aspect of the ancient city. Florence is also a major commercial centre, with fashion and winegrowing among the key contributors to the local and national economies – alongside the region’s booming tourism industry, of course.

The new routes make NIKI the airline of choice for passengers travelling between Austria and Italy. In addition to existing non-stop services from Vienna to Rome (2 x daily) and Milan (3 x daily), private and business travellers now have the option of flying to Florence (6 x weekly). And in the summer NIKI is set to add Sardinia to its flight schedules.

With tickets already on sale, early birds can look forward to even cheaper prices while enjoying all of the advantages and service associated with NIKI.

Trips from Vienna to Florence start at just EUR 69 one-way, including all taxes and fees. Bookings are available online at flyniki.com, via the Service Center on 43 (0)820 737 800 (€0.12/min.) and from travel agents. 

Passengers are served complimentary refreshments and newspapers, have access to the on-board entertainment system, and can collect topbonus miles on all NIKI and airberlin flights.

In 2011 NIKI posted revenue of about EUR 435 million and carried a total of some 4.5 million passengers, making it the second largest airline at Vienna International Airport. The Austrian airline will be in a position to offer its customers access to a constantly growing network, as well as even greater flexibility and individual solutions as an affiliate member of the oneworld alliance – its owner airberlin becomes a member on 20 March 2012. NIKI and airberlin’s market–leading products and prices have allowed the airlines to claim market leadership on routes between Germany and Austria.
