Laudamotion and Eurowings decided to end their cooperation after 31 May 2018, after their current deal comprising eight wet-leased aircraft to Eurowings ends.
I'm glad I flew them last week on an Eurowings flight out of TXL :shock:

Laudamotion may be completely sold to Ryanair from 2021, says Niki Lauda, who says he holds an option to divest.

Laudamotion to cancel planned service to and from Zurich set for June 2018, as “third-party leasing companies have not confirmed the delivery dates for two A320s as agreed”.

Laudamotion opened reservation for its planned Vienna base, set to launch in late-October 2018 with 20 mostly European routes.

Laudamotion, together with Ryanair, is in talks with Airbus and leasing companies to lease A320ceos and A320neos.

The European Commission filing says EU antitrust regulators will decide by 12 July 2018 whether to wave through the Ryanair bid for a 75% stake in Laudamotion.

Not surprisingly, the decision is welcomed by Ryanair, which at the same time accuses Lufthansa of destabilising Laudamotion by reclaiming 9 aircraft leased to the Austrian airline. Lufthansa retaliates by saying it needs the aircraft for Eurowings and has the right to terminate the contract.

The war is declared between Lufthansa and Ryanair about LaudaMotion!

With all due respect for Niki Lauda, I don't think he has proved to be much of a manager in the past.

Is he acting as a straw man for a big airline or does he intend to resell soon and make a quick buck?
Pure speculation of course...

Let's hope Brussels Charleroi or Zaventem in the future ! But I'm sure they will do it...
