Based in Vienna, Lauda flies across Europe and Northern Africa. The Austrian airline mainly targets vacation destinations and boosts services in peak periods to countries such as Greece, Croatia, Italy, and Germany. Additional hubs are situated in Stuttgart and Düsseldorf, which spread the traffic of European flights.
It is owned by Ryanair and operates alongside attached subsidiaries Ryanair Sun and Ryanair UK. As a result of the partnerships, Lauda is able to benefit from hub and resource sharing, resulting in more direct services for passengers.
Economy is the predominant class and takes up the majority of cabins, with some rows reserved for Premium Economy. The basic fare provides seats with 32 in of legroom, while the upgraded section adds an extra 2 in. Both fares are located within the same cabin, meaning there is no class separation. The seats are set at a 118° angle and don’t recline, so you won’t have to worry about the person in front of you taking up your space. All passengers are permitted a small piece of hand luggage that must fit under the seat in front.
Unlike other Ryanair subsidiaries, Lauda flies exclusively Boeing aircraft. The short-to-medium distance A320 jets are the preferred model and can carry approximately 180 people. Austria’s national colors of red and white decorate the planes. Each aircraft is named after a famous icon, such as John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, Pablo Picasso, Ray Charles, and Frida Kahlo. The names are not printed on the jets but the cabin crew will be able to inform you which one you are traveling on.
