New: To Athens with NIKI

NIKI is extending its service to Greece: Athens will be included in the flight plan for the summer of 2015, with flights to the Greek capital every day except Saturday. With the inclusion of Athens in April 2015, a new NIKI destination will thus be added for the mainland of the southern European country, supplementing popular Greek holiday islands in the Mediterranean, such as Crete, Rhodes, Santorini and Mykonos. The new connection to Athens will operate daily (except on Saturday) with an Airbus A320 and provide additional flexibility and the best connecting flights for holiday and business travellers to Greece. In addition, passengers from Greece will have access to NIKI connections between Vienna and the global airberlin network.

NIKI (HG8640) will take off from Vienna at 11:30 and land in the Greek capital at 13:35. The return flight (HG8641) will leave Athens at 14:25 and land in Vienna at 16:45.

“Greece has become the strongest growth market for NIKI over the past few years,” says NIKI’s Managing Director Christian Lesjak. “The recently decided-upon fleet conversion and our position as market leader will enable us to offer more flights from Vienna to Greece in the future."

Athens, the centre of the ancient world, boasts impressive buildings and the classic sights of ancient Greece, making it a European city one simply has to see. The Parthenon on the Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus and the Theatre of Dionysus are among the most important historical sites in the old city of Athens. They’re a must-see for all those interested in culture and history. Effective immediately, the new NIKI destination can be booked at a travel office or at
