Hi,

Just came across my mind, Austrian Air is merging with Lufthansa. What about Lauda Air, which, it's parent company is Austrian Airlines AG, according to Wikipedia.

It seems like the news have forget that Lauda Air will be merging with Lufthansa too!


Never forget to be yourself.

NG is 100% owned by OS so NG is part of the sale. Also VO operating the "Austrian Arrows" flights is part of the sale. It is not OS as a single airline, it is the state-owned stake of the "OS group" which is negotiated for sale.

Since NG is more or less just used as a brand for leisure travel/charters it is the smallest part of the sale. VO is the largest part when it comes to number of operated aircraft within the group (VO 58 aircraft, OS 41 aircraft).
Interesting will be, that in case the sales contract is signed (December 5th is the announced date), that also the 22,5% OS stake in PS will be in the hands of the new owner.

OS group will keep its own identity (according LH) like LX. However what the future of NG will be - we will see.



TWA - we showed you how good we have been!

NG is nothing more than a tour operator nowadays if you want, all aircraft are operated by Austrian Airlines and Lauda Air does not even have an Air Operator Certificate left if I remember correctly.

OS just kept the name and livery as the name sells quite well in Austria. They even repainted some A320 into the old Lauda colours while the 737 got the OS livery.

The A320's are actually back in the N/C of Austrian  Smile
