NIKI extends the Summer

New pricing system and more flights to sunny destinations

NIKI is forecasting sunny skies in its winter flight schedule for 2015/16. There will be more flights to Rome, for example. Together with our partner, Etihad Airways, we will also be offering flights to numerous attractive destinations in Asia via Abu Dhabi, as well as an optimal flight schedule for enabling short trips to Morocco. NIKI is also now introducing a new customer-focused pricing system.

Plan B for the winter: Those who wish to enjoy warm temperatures during a winter they can already imagine uncomfortably creeping up on them will find a large selection of suitable flights in NIKI’s 2015/16 winter flight schedule. The Austrian subsidiary of airberlin has plenty of destinations with guaranteed sunshine in its network, which will make it easy for customers to escape the snow and frost in Europe this winter.

NIKI’s daily nonstop flights from Vienna to Abu Dhabi with our partner, Etihad Airways, open up a gateway to attractive destinations in Asia. Flights to cities such as Bangkok, Hong Kong and Colombo can be used as stepping stones to the most beautiful holiday regions in South East Asia. As a result of their expanded codeshare agreement, the two airlines now offer 432 flights per week to 32 destinations worldwide. For example, the fastest way to get to Australia from Vienna is with NIKI and Etihad.

The flight schedule from Vienna in general is being optimised even further — for example, by providing three flights to Rome every day. Flights from Vienna to Athens and Munich will be discontinued starting in the winter of 2015.

Morocco also plays an important role in NIKI’s 2015/16 winter schedule. A quick trip to North Africa (flight time of less than six hours) is no problem with the direct connection between Vienna and Marrakesh, which offers flights on Thursdays and Sundays. There are also flights every Tuesday to Agadir, which is located directly on the Atlantic coast in the southern part of Morocco.

Always on-board: NIKI food and beverages

NIKI always strives to provide great service — and eating and drinking enjoyment is no exception here. NIKI’s all-inclusive service covers soft drinks, coffee and tea, as well as a NIKI sandwich. Passengers who prefer a hot meal can order one of NIKI’s gourmet menus: From veal cutlet to Asian-style noodles and sweet Kaiserschmarrn pancakes — those who like to dine in style above the clouds can reserve their preferred menu up to 48 hours before take-off.

New customer-focused pricing system

Effective immediately, NIKI is offering four new price categories that are tailored to customers’ specific needs. There’s JustFly (from €49) for the economy-minded; FlyDeal, for travellers who wish to continue taking up to 23 kg of luggage with them for free; FlyClassic, for passengers who want to reserve a seat in advance; and FlyFlex , which offers amenities such as lounge access, preferred check-in, and quick processing through security, as well as greater flexibility for changing one’s travel plans. With NIKI, you simply book exactly what you need.
