Niki has ordered two more Embraer 190 medium airliners.
November 25: Austrian budget airline Niki, founded by ex-Formula One World Champion Niki Lauda, has ordered two more Embraer 190 medium airliners for delivery in 2011.
Niki is Austria’s second largest airline and received its first E190 just three months ago. “The plane is right for me,” said Lauda. “First of all, I don’t make any compromises when it comes to quality – secondly, it is well known that I am a big fan of the latest technologies, especially when they bring efficiency and savings.” Today’s announcement brings Niki’s total order of E190s to 12.
