Laudamotion becomes LJLA’s newest airline with first flights to Vienna

Austrian airline Laudamotion is to become the latest airline to operate from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), having today announced plans to commence a twice weekly service to Vienna, starting this Winter.

Flights will commence on October 28, operating at convenient flight times on Mondays and Fridays using Airbus A320 aircraft.

Laudamotion has bases in Vienna, Innsbruck, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Palma and currently only operate to London Stansted in the UK.

It is Austria’s no. 1 low-fare airline and is named after its founder, former F1 driver Niki Lauda, who established the company in March 2018.

It was recently acquired by Dublin-based budget airline Ryanair.

This is LJLA’s first scheduled service to Vienna and is the latest new destination to be served direct from the airport. It will be the third new airline to be announced in Liverpool during the past nine months.

Bookings can now be made on with fares starting from €19.99 one way.

Paul Winfield, director of aviation development for LJLA, said: “For Laudamotion to choose Liverpool to be their first UK regional airport to operate from is a tremendous achievement for the airport and shows how attractive operating from here is becoming for some of Europe’s top airline’s.

“Vienna is another new destination to be served from Liverpool and we expect this to be popular with both the leisure traveller and the region’s business community.”

Andreas Gruber, managing director of Laudamotion, added: “Our routes work because we have the right offer for price-sensitive customers.

“In particular, with our new City Shuttle routes, I’m sure to increase the traffic with our new non-stop service to and from Vienna.”
